Universal Studios' Revenge of the Mummy and E.T. Adventures rides malfunctioned with park guests aboard Sunday evening, requiring about 24 riders to be evacuated by Orlando Fire Department.
A park official said technical difficulties caused both rides to come to a stop within minutes of each other shortly before 6 p.m.
"The system noted that there was a problem and that it should not continue," said Alyson Lundell, a theme park spokeswoman. "It's programmed to stop running at that point and that's what they did."
Lundell said 12 people were evacuated from a single vehicle that was about 10 feet off the ground on the Revenge of the Mummy ride. Another 12 were evacuated from a single vehicle on the E.T. Adventures ride. Other guests were unloaded from the loading platform, she added.
Lundell said the rides were reopened about 8 p.m. after about an hour-long inspection and testing.
Lundell said no one was hurt or requested medical treatment.
