Firefighters rescued 19 people who became stranded 70ft in the air on the Starflyer carousel ride yesterday evening.
The ride - which is 220ft high - took Sheffield by storm earlier this year with thousands of thrillseekers enjoying it while it was based at the top of Fargate.
The hue ride dominated the Sheffield city centre skyline between March and June and became the talk of the town.
Starflyer is currently based on the South Bank of the River Thames in London and that's where last night';s drama happened.
Ten capsules on the ride became stranded in the air due to a technical problem and firefighters had to use aerial platforms to rescue them.
The rescue operation took several hours and no one was injured.
