11 people stuck on Universal Studios Hollywood ride after power outage

11 people were stuck on a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood on Thursday April 7 following a power outage in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department were alerted that people were stranded on the theme park’s Transformers ride around 3:45 p.m, Thursday April 7. LAOCFD told ABC 7 that no one suffered injuries and everyone was removed safely.

In aerial footage of the incident, LACOFD units were seen swarming the north side of Universal Studios, the only area that the outage impacted. The Harry Potter ride was also affected.

The area was all clear a little more than an hour later, NBC Los Angeles reports. A Universal Studios Hollywood spokesperson told People; “As a result of a power interruption from So Cal Edison, we experienced a brief power dip which resulted in exiting guests from some attractions.

“Power has been fully restored and we’re working to get a few remaining attractions back online. The theme park remains open.”

The power outage comes a year after Universal Studios Hollywood reopened after being shut down for more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
