Knott's installs evacuation system on WindSeeker rides

BUENA PARK, Calif.

The WindSeeker ride has been closed since September after a brake malfunction forced the ride to shut down, leaving 20 people stranded 300 feet in the air for 3 1/2 hours.

The ride has now been equipped with a special cage that goes up the ride in case it breaks down. The cage can carry people down four at a time.

Knott's is reportedly testing the system. No word on when the ride will re-open has been released.
