Guests at the Disney California Adventure Park in California had a little too much adventure when a malfunctioning Ferris wheel stranded them for nearly two hours.

The Orange County Register says it's unclear why Mickey's Fun Wheel malfunctioned Thursday afternoon at the Anaheim park. About 30 passengers were evacuated after workers manually restarted the ride.

Several of the riders stuck on the attraction used the extra time to tweet about their not-so-magical experience on the Ferris wheel.

The paper says the last rider got off the 150-ft.-high wheel around 6 p.m.

No injuries are reported, and the rest of the park remained open.
