A malfunctioning ride at Knott's Berry Farm left riders stuck in the air for hours on Friday night.

A Knott's spokesperson said the Wind Seeker ride at the park encountered issues around 7:30 p.m.

The ride takes people high into the air and spins them around.

Maintenance crews had to manually lower the ride, which took a couple hours.

No one was injured. Crews said the ride will be kept out of service until they determine what happened.
