Dangerous roller coaster shutdown

Posted under Premises Liability

The roller coaster that seriously injured one of its riders will be voluntarily closed by Mt. Olympus.

Investigations by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) found that the theme park committed several violations that resulted in an accident on March 6. Anthony Theisen reportedly sustained serious injuries after he was thrown from the Opa! Roller coaster and fell with a height of 17 feet. DSPS said the rollercoaster was not well-maintained and the weight per car exceeded the limit.

Though Mt. Olympus recently said that they will no longer operate the Opa! Roller coaster, they stated that the investigation’s findings were contradictory to the findings of their internal expert team.
