Wisconsin Dells rollercoaster shut down after rider injury

WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The state has ordered a shut-down of an indoor roller coaster at a Wisconsin Dells resort after a rider fell and suffered a brain injury. The state Department of Safety and Professional Services issued four code violations against the "Opa" ride at Mount Olympus.

Officials said 63-year-old Anthony Theisen fell 17-feet onto a concrete floor, when a defective lap-bar opened on the ride March 6. The resort said the state's finding about the lap-bar was not consistent with the company's own investigation. But Mount Olympus did say it was shutting down the ride. Thiesen's attorney, Todd Korb, tells WISC T-V in Madison that the long-term effects of the victim's brain injury are not known. He said Thiesen came out of a coma two days ago.
