Power outage hits Valley Fair


SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) -- The power is back on after an outage stranded people on rides at Valleyfair amusement park in Shakopee.

Xcel Energy spokeswoman Mary Sandok says the power was restored at 6 p.m. Tuesday after being out for about an hour and a half.

Sandok says an Xcel equipment failure caused the outage.

Valleyfair spokesman Todd Larkin tells WCCO-AM that maintenance workers escorted people from the rides.

Larkin says the fair is closed for the night.

No injuries are reported.
