(CNN) -- Four dozen people were stuck for hours on a ride at SeaWorld San Diego on Sunday after a power failure, the amusement park said.

Forty-six riders and two SeaWorld employees were stuck on the Skytower ride for four hours until engineers were able to restore power, the park said.

"The guests were never in danger and park officials were in constant communication with them while the power failure was being addressed," a park spokesman said. "Two SeaWorld employees were also in the Skytower providing guests with water and snacks."
