According to post from Cedar Point’s Facebook, the park is working alongside “the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture’s Division of Amusement Ride Safety & Fairs, third party investigators, engineers and the ride’s manufacturer” to try and figure out what exactly happened with the coaster.

The park goes on to state that the safety of their guests is a “top priority” for them.
