Mt. Olympus roller coaster permanently shutdown

Posted under Premises Liability

Famous theme park Mt. Olympus said they will no longer have the roller coaster that recently caused serious injuries to one of its passengers in operation, an article published on April 2 stated.

The incident happened on March 6 when 63-year-old Anthony Theisen was accidentally ejected and fell 17 feet from the Opa! Roller coaster. Theisen is reportedly getting better after he recently came out of a coma.

According to the findings of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS), the theme park failed to properly maintain the roller coaster, leading to mechanical problems. DSPS also said the weight limit per car for the roller coaster was violated. Mt. Olympus has contested these findings however.
