A trip to Six Flags Over Texas quickly turned into a nightmare for eight students this weekend when the park's new rollercoaster, The Joker, stopped mid-rid as a storm passed through the area.

The students were on their backs for more than three hours until being rescued at 3 a.m. Saturday. Luckily, no one was injured.

Six Flags Over Texas says that "severe headwinds triggered a safety stoppage" and that after a thorough inspection, The Joker has re-opened.
