Cedar Point has closed one of its attractions for the remainder of the 2021 season after a woman was injured from a flying piece of metal that dislodged from the ride.
The Top Thrill Dragster will remain closed while the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Division of Amusement Ride Safety & Fairs, third-party investigators, engineers and the ride’s manufacturer investigate exactly how a "small metal object" detached from the roller coaster last weekend.

A Cedar Point spokesperson previously confirmed to Fox News that the object detached as the ride was ending its run.
"We refuse to operate any ride or attraction without total confidence in its safety," Cedar Point wrote in a Facebook post Thursday.
The company further noted that it wouldn't "rush the investigation and will work tirelessly in our search for answers in the interest of improving safety."
