Dozens of patrons are trapped on a ride at Gold Coast theme park Movie World.

Emergency services including paramedics and fire rescue crews have been sent to the Oxenford fun park after the Arkham Asylum ride malfunctioned.

Movie World rides were cleared after an official Worksafe Queensland safety audit last month following the Dreamworld Thunder River Rapids Ride disaster at Dreamworld where four tourists died.

The ambulance service is on standby but says so far there are no reports of injuries.

Firefighters were called to the Oxenford theme park just before midday, after being told they may have to stage a vertical rescue.

More to come.
