The United Kingdom is facing a scorching heat, with temperatures breaking all-time records and power outages due to overheating of equipment. This led to some unfortunate people caught on the rollercoaster at Alton Towers amusement park in Staffordshire, forcing them to go down a flight of stairs to reach the ground.
A guest named Dean shared a photo of the traumatic experience on Twitter. “An oblivion shuttle has stalled at the top, I’m sure magic bottles of water will go straight out this summer,” he wrote.
