MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Rides were temporarily suspended at Kings Island again on Tuesday afternoon.

"A power flicker occurred caused by a reoccurring intermittent issue with Duke Energy’s substation outside the park," said Kings Island spokesman Don Helbig. "Kings Island has operational procedures in place for these instances, which include temporarily suspending ride operation."

Duke Energy confirmed that the problem is a leaning pole near their substation on Western Row Road.

It happened around 2:05 p.m. As of 2:50 p.m. most rides were back open, according to officials.

Duke Energy said they identified the issue and are making final repairs.

A "power surge" off the property caused rides to shut down briefly on Monday as well.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. and lasted about 20 minutes.

The park closed at 8 p.m. as scheduled.

Officials said it's park procedure to shut everything down when this happens.

There are no reports of any injuries.
