FALCON HEIGHTS, MN (AP) - Another ride at the Minnesota State Fair has stopped working.
The River Raft shut down Tuesday afternoon. Fair officials say it was due to an electrical problem. Ride operators told patrons who were forced to get off and collect refunds that the same thing happened Monday.
Fair spokeswoman Brienna Schutte says the operators expect to have the water ride working again by Wednesday, when temperatures are expected to soar and send fair visitors looking for ways to cool off.
Last week, the popular Stratosphere swing ride shut down a few times. The 200-foot-high swing ride left riders briefly stuck up in the air on Thursday and Friday. It reopened Saturday.
