SeaWorld officials were able to bring water and food to the stranded people as they worked to restore power to the ride.

Power was finally restored around 7:30 p.m. By that point the people in the Skytower had been stranded there for four hours.

No one was reported injured in the incident, though one passenger was treated for anxiety.

SEAS stock rose slightly in Monday midday trading.
