I was at the park on Sunday May 25th but did not get to see this happening. Apparently Steel Force was stuck at the top of the lift hill and the riders had to be rescued or evacuated. Heres a video of it on youtube.

Evacs happen from time to time but it's not like they had to repel down a dangling rope from 200-feet up.

Believe it or not some ride ops like to climb the lift from time to time in the mornings before the ride opens just for the fun - um I mean to make sure the phones work. :D

Evacuations are a "fairly" common occurrence in the amusement industry. People take it a lot more seriously than it really is though... I was there watching, and I found it funny how the ride was re-opened within 15 minutes of the completion of the evac.

I was there Monday when it was stuck on the break line before the drop in the middle of the ride. There was no evac but someone had to come up to "move things along".
