At 11 p.m. Thursday, around 20 passengers were riding the "Magic Carpet" as the base started to sway.
Bystanders ran to the base and grabbed the railing to try and stabilize the ride. When the ride eventually came to a stop reports say the safety harnesses did not unlock for several minutes.
There were no injuries reported. The ride was taken down by Friday morning.
