Mason, Ohio (AP) -- Kings Island says it will keep the troubled Son of Beast roller coaster shut down for the remainder of the summer season.
Don Helbig, a spokesman for the theme park in Mason, Ohio, said Monday that officials will decide the ride's future over the winter.
The park closed the ride June 16 after a 39-year-old woman who rode the coaster reported she had been hospitalized with a burst blood vessel.
Inspectors for the Ohio Department of Agriculture found no irregularities with the ride in a report July 29.
The ride has been idled six times in nine seasons.
It was idle nearly a year for rebuilding and removal of a loop after 27 people were hurt in 2006.
