ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Visitors to Six Flags on Monday won't have a chance to board the new Typhoon Twister water ride.
 
It's not known when the ride will reopen after a visitor fell out of one of the rafts on its first day of operation Saturday.

No word on if they suffered any injuries.
 
Typhoon Twister is described as a "water thrill ride" that takes four riders down a 125-foot-long whirlpool while spinning them 360 degrees. Riders are then sent down a 45-foot-tall wave wall that simulates weightlessness.
 
A park statement says that following "standard protocol," the ride has been closed while the accident is investigated.
