ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- Roller coaster Mr. Freeze stalled at Six Flags in Eureka on Thursday, putting riders in quite a predicament.

According to sources, everybody onboard at the time it stalled were forced to climb down a ladder to get off the ride.

According to a spokesperson at the park, there was a power interruption to the mechanisms that push the coaster.

Mr. Freeze is designed and powered differently than other coasters. The coaster was designed so that if there is a power interruption, the train will stop in the valleys of the track so crews can safely unload passengers. 

Six Flags has stressed the coaster did not malfunction but it did not have enough speed to make it around.

Additional information was not immediately available.
