SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) – Cedar Point in northern Ohio is removing its newest water ride after just five years.
Operators of the amusement park in Sandusky say Shoot the Rapids is being dismantled because of low ridership.
Three summers ago, seven people were hurt on Shoot the Rapids after a boat rolled backward down a hill and flipped over in the water.
The $10.5 million flume ride remained closed the rest of the year.
Shoot the Rapids opened in 2010 after weeks of delays because the boats had to be modified.
Cedar Point says two other rides that required an extra fee won’t be opening this year.
Both the go-karts and the Skyscraper ride are being removed from the Challenge Park area of Cedar Point.
