Power outage plagues Adventureland park Sunday afternoon

ALTOONA - The fun at Adventureland Park came to a halt on Sunday afternoon when the amusement park lost power.

Rides were at a standstill and employees were forced to turn away cars.

Adventureland says a car accident nearby knocked out power to many places in the area.

One group of Iowans drove over an hour to come to the park for a birthday party.

"It's extremely frustrating. We came here to celebrate my daughter's 14th birthday and we left for lunch, and all of a sudden it's playing the waiting game," says Chris Brimmer, who was visiting from Williamsburg.

Mid-American Energy was on scene working to restore the power.

The park told guests they hoped to have things back up and running within a few hours.

According to the park's Facebook page, power has not been restored quite yet.

A Local 5 viewer also tells us that they received tickets from the park to use on a different day.
