After a delay in opening at Six Flags St. Louis, Typhoon Twister finally opened on Saturday. It was then promptly closed after an adult rider fell off the raft.
The guest was taken to a hospital as a precaution, but there is no word on any injuries.
Typhoon Twister is a standard Bowl Slide with a zero G wall. There are dozens of them in parks across the country, yet this is the first time anyone has fallen off of a raft. Riders go down the slide, into a bowl which then takes riders down a larger slide and up the zero-g wall. It’s a thrilling ride, but one that millions of people have taken before Saturday.
Park officials have said they’ll keep the ride closed until they figure out what happened.
