WISCONSIN DELLS — The
state won't investigate the failure of a ride at a
Wisconsin Dells theme park.
Earlier this month, a large
cable snapped on the Catapult ride just seconds before it
was supposed to launch two people into the air at Mount
Olympus Water and Theme Park.
The state Department of
Safety and Professional Services will not investigate the
failure, saying it only looks into accidents that involve
injury or death. The agency was going to make sure the
ride had been repaired properly, but that was scrapped
once the Catapult was taken down.
Despite several minor
violations in the past, the ride did pass its most recent
safety inspection in June.
