    A selfie stick halted the California Screamin' coaster at the Disney Park Monday, May 2, 2016.

    Riders were stuck on the California Screamin' ride Monday at California Adventure, the sister park to Disneyland, after someone took out a selfie stick and the ride was halted, officials said.

    The riders were escorted off the ride by 6 p.m. after waiting for 20 minutes, a Disneyland spokesperson said.

    Disneyland officials said someone whipped out a selfie stick, which is banned from the park and rides. 

    Disneyland officials said the ride is stopped any time a selfie stick is taken out as it poses a safety risk.
