A warning light resulted in a roller coaster evacuation at Dorney Park in Pennsylvania Monday. 

In a report from, passengers were onboard The Talon roller coaster at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in South Whitehall Township around noon Monday when it began climbing the lift hill. As the train approached the first downward hill, a warning light illuminated at the station and the ride operator decided to halt the coaster immediately.

Due to rainy conditions at the park Monday, Dorney Park officials made the decision to remove all the passengers and let engineers conduct a full inspection of the ride before putting it back into service.

All of the passengers were forced to walk down the emergency exit on the side of the coaster, but no injuries were reported. There was no word about when the ride would reopen.

The Talon is one of the most popular attractions at the park.
