Posted at 5:20 AM, Aug 10, 2018

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18)– Kentucky Kingdom’s "Mile High Falls" is back open nearly two weeks after the splash ride malfunctioned.

State ride inspectors determined the water level was too low, causing a boat to tilt against a safety rail.

13 passengers were evacuated from the ride and two were sent to the hospital.

Kentucky Kingdom has added a second sensor on the ride to prevent a similar incident.
