Chaos was a Chaos built by US manufacturer Chance Rides that was previously located at Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon, Michigan, USA. It operated from 1996 to July 30, 2001.


Chaos officially opened in 1996. The ride closed following an incident in July 2001.


On July 30, 2001, a major accident occurred shortly before 7pm EST on Chaos. The entire ride collapsed after the upper rotating portion separated. Emergency crews had to saw through the wreckage and use a crane to stabilize the ride before removing riders.[1] There were 33 people onboard, with 31 being taken to the hospital. The others were evacuated nine hours later.[2] Following this, the rest of the Chaos rides were temporarily closed. Prior to the 2002 season, Chaos was completely removed from Michigan's Adventure.
