Carowinds said the park will be open today with all rides, except four, in full operation.
The cause of the outage wasn’t known Thursday night. Over loudspeakers, Bryant said park officials explained there had been a power problem and that riders would be lowered as soon as possible.
A Carowinds spokesperson confirmed the power outages at the park but did not confirm the riders getting stuck.
No one was hurt Thursday night at Carowinds, on the SC line, where riders were evacuated from thrill rides including the WindSeeker. Several cellphone videos he made as night fell over Carowinds show parts of the park bathed in swaths of darkness, while neon lights shine from rides in other areas.
The ride malfunctioned in July 2013, stranding 64 passengers high above the amusement park for more than an hour.
It was not immediately clear whether all the rides would be operating Friday.
Carowinds says Barracuda Blasters, Sand Dune Lagoon, Southern Sidewinder, and Whitewater Falls were out of service.
The statement from the park officials read, “Around 8 pm this evening, there was a power failure at Carowinds”. It stands more than 300 feet tall. Carowinds confirmed the park was experiencing sporadic power outages, but did not initially confirm that riders were stuck.
Several viewers called WBTV just after 8 p.m. Thursday reporting riders stuck on roller coasters at the park. A spokeswoman did not immediately return messages.
