ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A new thrill ride at the Rochester Fair was struck by lightning during Thursday’s storms and will be out of service for a couple of days.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports that a computer operating the 120-foot-tall Speed XXL ride was damaged.

“Due to Mother Nature, during the recent thunderstorm, the Speed XXL was impacted and will not be in operation until early next week,” the fair posted on Facebook. “Sorry for the inconvenience.”

A replacement computer is coming in from Europe.
