Ocean City amusement park closes ride after Ohio accident

July 27th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The Baltimore Sun reports an Ocean City amusement park has suspended service on a ride similar to the one in Ohio where a deadly accident occurred Wednesday night, Maryland officials say. Trimper’s Rides closed a ride that is like the Fireball attraction at the Ohio State Fair, said Theresa Blaner, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. State inspectors were at Trimper’s to check out the ride on Thursday morning, she said. The boardwalk amusement park is the only place in the state that features the ride, Blaner said.
