According to the operators, there were no signs of malfunction, and the ride was functioning properly in the preliminary tests. Ohio Governor John Kasich ordered the rest of the rides to be shut down until further security inspections.

The ride, known as the Fire Ball, holds at least six rows of four seats that revolve around themselves as the device swings from side to side. One of these rows got detached.
