BUENA PARK, Calif. (AP) - A Knott's Berry Farm ride that twice stranded passengers is being moved to Missouri.
The Orange County Register says the Southern California theme park didn't make a safety change needed to reopen the Windseeker - its tallest ride.
Knott's parent company announced last week that it will move the 301-foot ride to its Worlds of Fun park in Kansas City. The ride also will get a new name - SteelHawk.
California regulators ordered the ride shut down last September after riders were twice stranded in the air. The Division of Occupational Safety and Health says Knott's made some changes but never replaced ladders that don't meet state rules.
Stacy Frole, a spokeswoman for Knott's owner Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., says the current ladders are legal in other states.
