Ten people were stranded on the popular "Transformers: The Ride" at Universal Studios today when the ride got stuck.

Firefighters were called in to the ride around 9:10 a.m. Four people were brought to safety pretty quickly, but it took about an hour to rescue the remaining six, according to the Los Angeles Times. No injuries were reported.

Tony Atkins, an inspector with the Los Angeles Fire Department, said the ride got stuck in an "elevated position."

The ride, which debuted in 2012, has helped increase attendance at the amusement park, according to City News Service.
