===================================================

 

The Transformers ride at Universal Studios Florida, in Orlando, became stuck Tuesday morning with passengers on board.

 

Fire rescue crews were on the scene, presumably to evacuate visitors from the attraction.

 

It has, so far, been a busy week for fire rescue teams in the Central Florida theme parks area.

 

This is the second incident in a few days requiring their assistance.

 

About 120 visitors to Walt Disney World had to be evacuated from the Monorail Sunday after a reported lightning strike disabled the gold train.

 

There were no injuries in that incident.
