Earthquake Stops Rollercoaster At Worst Spot Imaginable

You know the point right before you drop on a theme park ride? Your heart is beating faster and tension is mounting, and then...whoosh. Imagine getting stuck at that point during an earthquake.

Yesterday, there was a 5.5 magnitude earthquake in Tokyo. According to the WSJ and AP, there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Thank goodness for that.

Oh boy.

Online, photos of people stuck on one of Tokyo Disney Sea’s most popular attractions have gone viral.
For example, the above photo, which shows the Disney Sea’s Journey to the Center of the Earth ride stopped right before the attraction’s most enjoyable drop, has been retweeted over 26,000 times.

The stuck passengers weren't injured, and spent their time taking selfies and various pictures of their new temporary home.  After all, it is 2015.  

In the end, the car was evacuated, and everybody walked down the stairs to freedom.  Not as exciting, but at least it was an option.
