KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

People who went to Worlds of Fun on Saturday took to social media, saying that the power went out at the park and that people were "stuck" on rides. 

Kansas City Power & Light told KCTV5 News that they did not see any power outages on their end, but that they did send a couple crews to World's of Fun to assist. KCP&L said it was not an issue on their end. 

People leaving the park told KCTV5 News that the power was only off for a few seconds, but that the park had to shut down rides for a little while.

It took long enough to restore service to the rides that many people left the park out of frustration.

Worlds of Fun released a statement at 6:45 p.m.:

At approximately 4PM this afternoon, there was a power outage at Worlds of Fun. Effected rides were stopped and safely evacuated. As always, the safety of our guests and employees is our highest priority. Power has been restored. Worlds of Fun is still open until 10PM and will be open for regular operation on Sunday.

Here's what some on social media were saying:
