Theme park staff rescued the 64 stranded passengers via an aisle alongside the rollercoaster tracks.
A spokesperson for the park told The Japan Times that "the suspension of the roller coaster was the result of the operator's priority on safety".
Despite what happened, many visitors to the theme park, which was packed due to the Golden Week holidays, queued to ride the rollercoaster as soon as operations resumed following a test run shortly after 7pm on Tuesday. One vehicle of Jurassic Park-themed "Flying Dinosaur" stopped during its upward climb whereas, the other stalled before reaching the terminal.
Two hours later, the park was able to re-start the ride, and despite the events that had just transpired, local news outlet Asahi Shimbun claimed there was still a long line of people wanting to get on the ride.
