Passengers stranded on SeaWorld ride for hours

A ride at San Diego's SeaWorld called "Skytower" was stuck hundreds of feet in the air for four hours Sunday due to a power outage. 

SeaWorld released in a statement that the at least 20 guests were never in danger. The cause of the power outage is still under investigation.

Guests received refunds and tickets to return to the park, though we aren't sure they'd ride Skytower again.
