Roller coasters need more regulation?

A  dozen  people  got stuck  on  a  rollercoaster  140  feet  in  the  air  for  nearly  four  hours.

It  happened  on  the  "Hollywood  Rip  Ride  Rockit"  at  Universal  Studios  in  Orlando  last  night.

The coolest new coasters for 2013

One  woman  went  to  the  hospital  with  neck  pain.

This  isn’t  the  first  time  this  has  happened.  In  August  one  person  was  hurt  when  cars  stopped  on  this  same  coaster.

Officials say the ride will stay closed until they figure out the problem.
