EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — A guest was injured on a ride at Storybook Land on Friday and required medical attention, the amusement park said on social media.
On Friday, October 18, 2019, an incident occurred on the "Out on a Limb" swing ride, resulting in a park guest requiring medical attention. The ride has been closed pending inspection, and the incident is under investigation.
The incident occurred shortly after noon on the Out on a Limb swing ride, police said.
The ride was closed pending inspection by the state Department of Community Affairs, and the incident is under investigation, police said, adding Storybook Land officials are cooperating with authorities.
An employee at the 64-year-old amusement park said no additional details will be released.

Storybook Land collected cleaning supplies for Hurricane Harvey relief, Monday, Sept. 4. The items were collected by Good Sheppard United Methodist Church and will be sent to the United Methodist Committee on Relief. The committee will make "flood buckets," which are sent to areas affected by major flooding and storm damage. Storybook Land collected enough donations to make about 30 buckets for the relief fund.
