Anyone catch news of Rip Ride Rocket breakdown?

Universal Orlando: Is it still breaking down as often as when it first opened?

I haven't been following theme parks near as much as I used to, college got the best of me... Was just watching Anderson 360 on CNN and caught wind of the Rip Ride Rocket being broken down at the top of the straight up... or down. No Injuries reported and it seems that everyone got off the car safety. Says the Emergency Breaks came on.

It seems all 10 people are standing at the top of the "hill" waiting on the fire department to get them off.

Has it still been breaking down as much as it used to when it still opened?

I just got the news! Sad to see all the people stuck on the coaster. I haven't been noticing if the ride is having frequent breakdowns or not, but the creators need to take measures to prevent it from happening again.
Hopefully, stuff like this doesn't happen to the Diagon Alley coaster in a few years...
