CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — We know the reason why carnival rides were closed at the Carolina Beach boardwalk over the holiday weekend. Officials say three rides failed a state inspection.
A spokeswoman with the State Department of Labor told WWAY that the park is getting rid of one ride and replacing it with another.
They are working to get the other two up to standard.
They add the park has 18 or 19 rides and they tried to inspect them three times before now, but the rides were not ready.
As of Wednesday evening, most of the rides appeared to be up and running.
We reached out to the Carolina Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park, they declined to comment.
