A bizarre accident forced Cedar Point's newest roller coaster to shut down for the day and possibly longer.
A tire is to blame for the ride closing on Friday, August 10, 2018. Cedar Point's communications director Tony Clark tells MLive the tire which detached was not actually on one of the coaster's trains.
"A rubber tire from the ride's drive system, located inside the track and not on the train itself, detached from its motor," Clark said. "The ride stopped as designed and all riders were escorted off without incident. We hope to have the ride back up and running soon."
