Rides Re-Open at Ohio State Fair
Rides on the Amusements of America main midway and kiddieland have been re-inspected and reopened as of Sunday afternoon. As rides began to operate Sunday, Amusements of America issued the following statement:
"The decision to shut down similar rides around the world and reopen the Ohio midway indicates that this is an issue with a specific ride and not the ride operator or inspectors. There is no evidence that operator error played a role in the accident. We continue to keep those affected by this tragic accident in our prayers and work cooperatively with the ongoing investigation."
As expected, attendance at the fair was down following the accident, however, bounced back on Saturday with an increase of 1,252 patrons over 2016.
