GREEN BAY - City officials say it was an overall successful weekend for the opening of the Zippin Pippin roller coaster, but it wasn't flawless.

Some riders got an extra fifteen minutes on the 90-second ride, but they didn't go anywhere.

Officials say the roller coaster stalled on the tracks Sunday afternoon, due to a blown fuse.

Thirty people were on the ride at the time, but officials say they were only feet from the gate when it stalled.

Officials say a new transformer was put in Monday, and the coaster will be fully operational Tuesday."
