Mt. Olympus voluntarily closes roller coaster

Posted under Personal Injury

The theme park Mt. Olympus recently stated that it will no longer operate the Opa! Roller coaster, which seriously injured a man last March, an article published on April 2 reported.

Anthony Theisen, 63, recently came out of coma after the accident, which occurred March 6 and caused him to be ejected from the roller coaster inside the famous theme park.

In the investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS), the Opa! Roller coaster was found to have faulty parts, some of which were in need of replacement. DSPS also stated that the weight limit on the car in which Theisen was riding exceeded its capacity.

Despite closing the ride, Mt. Olympus stands firm on their findings that their crews properly installed the parts of the roller coaster and that they opposed the findings of the DSPS.
