The Palace Playland website says the Super Star "consists of three arms radiating from a central column. At the end of each arm is a Star holding seven gondolas. When the ride begins the central column spins one way, while the Stars at the end of each arm are raised in the air and rotate the other way."
There is a 42-inch minimum height requirement for the ride, or 36 inches when riding with a paying adult.
Investigators from the State Fire Marshal's Office responded to the scene to investigate the incident and said the ride passed inspection.
