A Carowinds ride was stopped in mid-rise with 64 riders on-board, after a safety sensor went off on Sunday.

WBTV is reporting that around 1:15 p.m., the WindSeeker stopped after a sensor was engaged. Once the sensor sounds, the ride's safety system automatically activates and stops the ride.

The Carowinds Ride Maintenance and Safety teams responded and worked to bring passengers to the ground, which took about an hour and 10 minutes, Carowinds officials confirmed.

No injuries were reported.

Carowinds says all rides get inspected and are maintained daily.

Carowinds expects the WindSeeker to open tomorrow after inspections.
