Six Flags’ website describes the Joker’s Jinx as having a “spaghetti bowl” design, with the roller coaster doing “a cobra roll, a sidewinder loop, a corkscrew, and innumerable swift reversals.”
Six Flags America said in a statement: “Joker’s Jinx did not complete its regular ride round, inducing it to stop at a safe spot on the trail. The Prince George’s County Fire Department is onsite to assist in get the equestrians safely off the go. The security of special guests is our highest priority and the go will be closed for a thorough inspection before reopening.”
Two dozen passengers became fixed, some for as long as five hours, on the same go in August 2014.
