Universal Studios Japan roller coaster stalls, leaving riders stranded for 2 hours

Universal Studios Japan said the Flying Dinosaur roller coaster had 64 passengers on board when it stalled at about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The roller coaster had similar issues during operation in August and September past year.

A safety mechanism was activated after detecting some abnormality, halting the operation of the roller coaster.
