The Dollywood theme park, which is located in East Tennessee, has filed a $500,000 lawsuit against a German company over a ride that park officials claim has malfunctioned. The suit, filed in Sevier County Circuit Court, contends that the Timber Tower ride has not worked properly and has not been satisfactorily repaired. It was reported by The Mountain Press, a local paper, that HUSS Park Attractions, the Defendant, built the ride and had a contract to repair it. The Complaint in the case alleges breach of contract, breach of warranty and negligence. The ride, which began operating in 2006, has been closed this year. Since the ride lifts riders some 65 feet off the ground and then would sway back and forth, a safety hazard was created.
