MASON, Ohio (AP) - An electric company says it was not the
source of an outage that lasted a couple of hours at Ohio amusement
park Kings Island on the Fourth of July.
Rides and stores at the park near Cincinnati shut down when
power failed around 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Duke Energy spokeswoman Sally
Thelen (THAY'-lehn) said Tuesday that the problem was caused by
equipment owned by Kings Island, not the utility.
Kings Island did not immediately return a call for comment on
Park spokesman Don Helbig said earlier that most power was
restored within three hours. Kings Island did not issue refunds to
customers during the outage.
