Dozens of people were stuck for over two hours on a roller coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Thursday afternoon. 

According to FOX 13, 64 people were stuck on the Sheikra roller coaster for about an hour before being evacuation procedures began. 

The ride stopped just before the first initial 200ft drop. "It was pretty scary. I mean, everyone's kind of up there, kind of joking about it, and then... time passes and we're starting to get freaked out," said Ryan Cannon to Fox 13. 

All passengers were safely rescued and no no one was injured. However, it's still unclear exactly what caused the ride to stop.
