Design[edit | edit source]

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 4 riders per car.

Incident[edit | edit source]

On March 6, 2014 a 64-year-old man fell nearly 20 feet from the ride and was airlifted to hospital with brain injuries and multiple bone fractures. The amusement park reopened the following day but Opa remained closed.[1]

In early April, it was announced that Opa would be removed from the park after an investigation found the ride to have four code violations.[2] The ride was purchased by Wade Shows, Inc.[3] and debuted in June 2014 after a new lighting package was installed.
