Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. has temporarily shut down five of its drop rides after an accident Thursday at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom severed a teenage girl's feet.

The rides that will be temporarily closed are at Kings Island, near Cincinnati; Canada's Wonderland in Toronto, Ontario; Kings Dominion in Doswell, Va.; Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C.; and Great America in Santa Clara, California.

Cedar Point has two free-fall rides, Power Tower and Demon Drop, which will not be closed.

"They are different rides than the one at Kentucky Kingdom," Cedar Point spokesman Bryan Edwards said.
