SACRAMENTO (KRON) — Some rides similar to the one that malfunctioned and killed one person last week in Ohio are being allowed to reopen in California.

One of those rides is in the Bay Area. The Delirium at Great America in Santa Clara has been sitting idle since last Thursday.

Cal/OSHA says it has approved reopening the ride after the owners tested it.

However, rides that go by the name Fire Ball remain shut down.

Cal/OSHA says it is awaiting a response from the manufacturer.

One of the closed Fire Ball rides is at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
