A collision between two trains forced the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world to shut down temporarily on the day it opened to the public.
Steel Vengeance had been heralded by Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, as a world record holder ahead of Saturday’s unveiling.
A statement by a representative for the theme park confirmed that it closed just hours later after a train “bumped” another train near the loading gate.
“Steel Vengeance is currently closed while the incident is under review, but we anticipate that it will reopen tonight,” the statement explained.
The collision was described as minor, though it involved occupied cars. Four riders reportedly sought medical evaluation but went on to continue their day at the park.
