In Another Incident

A CNN report revealed that an amusement park in the US was forced to shut down one of its main attractions, the Fury 325 roller coaster, due to a crack spotted on the support pillar. The malfunction caused the beam to move while the car with passengers was passing by. The amusement park, Carowinds, boasts that their Fury roller coaster is the tallest and longest ride of its kind in the US, located between North and South Carolina.
