He said the children range in age from 7 to 15.

Fulkerson says the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City "just didn't make it over a hill" and became stuck.

Fulkerson says power to the ride was shut off and the cars were chained to the rail before the stranded riders were escorted down one at a time.
