More Problems for Flight of Fear at Kings Island?
Saturday morning fire crews were called out to the park due to smoke seen coming from the ride. The smoke, according to Kings Island's statement, was from an electrical panel and was able to be dealt with quickly. Luckily, little damage was done and only the panel itself was effected.
Just a couple of weeks ago, on June 3rd, fire crews were called out to the ride due to heavy smoke as well. That incident resulted in the ride building being evacuated and 18 people suffering from heavy smoke inhalation. The cause was apparently due to a motor within the ride malfunctioning.
At this point one has to wonder if the days are numbered for Flight of Fear. Only time will tell if the ride has some major faults or if they can be corrected to keep it running smoothly in the future.
