The park said in a statement Monday that a cable on the Goliath roller coaster malfunctioned. The ride will reopen following repairs and a full safety inspection.
A cable on the Goliath roller coaster malfunctioned on Monday, prompting Six Flags New England officials to close the ride indefinitely.
“Earlier today, there was a minor malfunction with a cable on one of our rides,” Jennifer McGrath, a spokeswoman for the Agawam amusement park, told The Republican in an email late Monday afternoon.
The ride, which wasn’t in operation at the time, will remain closed until the part that malfunctioned is replaced and a full safety inspection is conducted, according to McGrath.
“Note, at this time we do not have a definitive date on when the attraction will reopen,” she said.
Six Flags describes Goliath as “a Giant Inverted Boomerang” that reaches a maximum elevation of 191 feet and a max speed of around 65 mph, according to the park’s website.
