Power outage strands riders at amusement park Posted on May 29, 2018 0 SANDUSKY (AP) — A power outage at an amusement park in Ohio left riders stranded on some of its roller coasters and other rides. A spokesman for Cedar Point in Sandusky says the outage Monday afternoon was caused by a car that hit a utility pole. Crews were able to restore power within about two hours. Photos shared on social media by people at the park along Lake Erie show riders stuck on a train going up the 300-foot tall Millennium Force roller coaster. Park employees were helping people off the rides.
