Lake Delton park where Florida girl was injured will reopen

LAKE DELTON (AP) -- The Wisconsin amusement park where a Florida girl fell 100 feet from a ride will reopen with new owners.

Sylvia Reyna and Orlando Pedvoza bought Extreme World in Lake Delton last week and will reopen it but the Terminal Velocity ride will remain closed.

Teagan Marti was visiting from Parkland, Fla., last summer when nets and airbags that were supposed to catch her were not raised and she hit the ground. Doctors have said she had brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries.

State officials say the operator of the Terminal Velocity did not follow protocol.

Reyna and Pedvoza own the Alligator Alley attraction next to Extreme World, which had been in foreclosure before the park was shut down after the accident.
