People being stranded in midair may have had a tough time in a prone position. Lucky that no injuries were reported.

What was the object? We will never know.

One or two potentially dangerous issues per week is worrying. Should these not have been designed out? Triggering of the ride's safety systems should be a last resort control measure. Were I a theme park public relations official I wouldn't be so relaxed in that admission.

Anyone who has been to both know that USJ is like a land lost in time, it's exactly what Universal looked like in the US 30 years ago.

USJ needs serious renovations and updates, not just quickly built tie-in "attractions" to Japanese idols or manga properties.

The roller coaster regularly makes emergency stops, as often as once or twice per week, as the park's policy requires the ride to halt whenever a potentially dangerous issue is detected, according to the official.

Probably somebody snuck a phone onto the ride and was filming while riding.

I've been to many theme/amusement/rollercoaster parks and these incidents are very common. Not newsworthy, except in Japan maybe.
