Cedar Point reopens Skyhawk ride a week after mishap injures two

By Craig Webb Published: August 3, 2014

Cedar Point has reopened one side of its Skyhawk attraction.

The move comes one week after a cable detached on the attraction injuring two park guests.

The injuries were minor and one guest was taken to the hospital.

The incident happened  when a cable on the attraction that swings riders high in the air on two giant arms came loose or snapped and struck the ground and fencing around the ride.

The park has reopened the side of the swinging attraction where the cable remained intact.

The ride, built by S&S Power, is billed as the world's tallest ride at 125 feet. It swings 20 riders on each arm at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

Skyhawk opened in 2006 in the park's Frontiertown section.
