Few details have been released, but Suzanne Emery of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park says there was “an incident” Sunday night on the Haunted Mine Drop attraction that caused the death.

The Post Independent reports that the park will be closed Monday and Tuesday.

“Out of respect and concern for all parties involved, we will have no further comment until all details have been confirmed,” Emery said in a news release. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved.”

Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire said park employees initiated first aid until paramedics arrived and determined the girl had died.

The girl’s name has not been released.

The Haunted Mine Drop, which opened in July 2017, is billed as the first drop attraction to go underground, plunging riders 110 feet into Iron Mountain.

Park visitors must sign a liability waiver before riding any attraction. The sheriff’s and coroner’s offices are investigating the death.

“Out of respect and concern for all parties involved, we will have no further comment until all details have been confirmed,” Emery said in a news release. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved.”
