State Fair Space Tower briefly shut down after power loss

The Pioneer Press reports power has been restored to the Space Tower at the Minnesota State Fair after a brief shutdown Wednesday. The ride was shut down for about two hours after power to the ride was reduced and was also lost in other areas in the southeast corner of the Fairgrounds.

This is the third ride that was closed temporarily at the Fair this year. The River Raft ride was shut down Tuesday afternoon due to an electrical problem. WCCO-TV says the ride reopened around noon Wednesday after motor parts were replaced.

The Stratosphere Swing Tower left riders stranded in their swings on each of the Fair’s first two days. The ride is now open.
