BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — There was a bad omen of sorts on a roller coaster at the Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park in San Antonio.

Twenty people got stuck on the Poltergeist Ride Saturday afternoon.

Theme park operators were able to get water to the stranded riders while the fire department worked out a rescue plan.

In the end, everyone got off the ride safely.
