Son of Beast at Kings Island is closed pending an investigation.
39 year old woman visited Kings Island on May 31 and was later admitted into the Intensive Care Unit after suffering a burst blood vessel in her brain. The incident occured on May 31, but she did not report the incident until June 16. The woman’s name, hospital she was transported to, or her current condition is not being released to the media at this time.
Son of Beast was shutdown immediatley by Kings Island on a voluntary base and is being inspected and proper ‘authorities’ were contacted as required by law. Hopefully the ride will reopen shortly when deemed safe. At this time, PR Manager, Don Helbig, cannot give an exact date as to when the ride will re-open.
