Tower of Power

November 30, 2007: Superman Ride at Kentucky Kingdom to be Torn Down

A judge said today that he will allow Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom to begin tearing down the Superman Tower of Power, the ride 13-year-old Kaitlyn Lasitter was on when her feet were severed by a broken cable in June.

    Workers can begin dismantling the ride Feb. 1, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Barry Willett said.

    Park officials believe the work will take about six weeks, said Carolyn McLean, a park spokeswoman.

    The park, which currently is closed for the season, will reopen in April.

    By that time, Kentucky Kingdom officials hope to have another ride picked out to replace the Superman Tower of Power, which is in a prominent position near the park's entrance.
