According to KMG, the Fireball in OH was 18 years old. Almost two weeks later, the cause of the accident was revealed.
KMG said in a statement that the thrill ride known as the "KMG Fireball", and also as the "Afterburner", was 18 years old and had "excessive corrosion on the interior of the gondola support beam dangerously reduced the beam's wall thickness over the years".
One rider, an 18-year-old man, was flung more than 50 feet and died on impact, while seven others were taken to area hospitals. Lewis is in serious condition. "This finally led to the catastrophic failure of the ride during operation".
Relatives of 18-year-old Jennifer Lambert say she's opened her eyes briefly but hasn't woken up.
