ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — Thrill seekers are back in line at a Universal Studios Orlando roller coaster hours after it was shutdown due to a malfunction that left a dozen people stuck for more than two hours.
Universal spokesman Tom Schroder says the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit reopened Thursday about 12 hours after a technical glitch stranded riders.READ MORE: Florida Senator Lauren Book Fighting Back Over Nude Images Stolen From Her

Schroder says crews worked through the night to resolve the issue, though he wouldn’t say exactly what it was. No serious injuries were reported, but one woman complained of neck pain and went to the hospital as a precaution.
