A weekend mishap that left two people hurt is raising a familiar question: Who inspects the rides at Cedar Point?

A cable on Skyhawk a super-sized swing ride snapped. Rider Tim Bostley’s lips and teeth were struck by a section of fence shattered by the cable.

“This huge crack, then people started screaming… a two by six struck me between my lip and jaw and drove my lip into my teeth,” he said.

He praised park workers quick and professional handling of the difficult situation.

Around 3.5 million visitors a year come to Cedar Point. Day-in and day-out, Cedar Point inspects its own rides.

“There is nothing that commands more attention and is taken more seriously than the issue of safety as it relates to our guests and employees,” park spokesman Bryan Edwards said.
