Knott's shuts down rides after series of malfunctions


The latest was Wednesday when the Windseeker at Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park stalled for nearly four hours, trapping 20 riders 300 feet in the air. It was the second malfunction there in just two weeks.

Riders were also stranded over the summer on Windseekers at parks in Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, and Ontario, Canada.

No one has been injured. The rides are built in the Netherlands.
