Hours after the world's tallest and fastest roller coaster opened up at an OH amusement park, the ride was shut down after a fender bender accident.

Steel Vengeance is a 205-foot roller coaster that boasts 10 world records, including the tallest and fastest coaster with the most airtime.

Steel Vengeance was closed in the afternoon after a returning train bumped a park train at the passenger loading area, according to Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO.

In a separate email, the spokesman said the ride reopened on Saturday evening and will be open today as scheduled.

Golden State's shooting was so bad that they didn't find find the bottom of the net until the 9:45 mark of the first period. So we mentioned the Pelicans' bench in our breakdown of Game 2 and how they weren't really providing their team any lift.

One of the cars was reportedly returning from a ride when it collided with another coaster vehicle that was parked in a loading area.

Steel Vengeance is a 'hyper-hybrid' roller coaster, made of steel cars that run on a wooden track.

Guests were on both trains at the time.

Officials say four people requested first aid, but all later returned to the park. All other guests left the ride and continued their visit.
