One of the most popular rides at Six Flags Great Adventure remains shut down and is not scheduled to resume operations anytime soon.

State ride inspectors are continuing to investigate what they say was a "derailment," although Six Flags disputes that characterization.

NJ.com is detailing a report obtained from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs that says the wheels of one train car "came out of their normal position on the rails" and cited damage to the car's axle and the wood and steel bolts on the track.

What the report does not say, is what caused the issue or how long the coaster may have been operating under those conditions.

A spokesman for the park told the Townsquare News Network last week that until those questions can be answered, and the coaster's manufacturer can certify the any needed repairs have been made, the state will not clear El Toro to resume operations. The state has given no timeline for that to be completed but did indicate their investigation is not yet concluded.

One of the tallest and fastest wooden coasters in the world, El Toro has been one of the most popular rides since it opened in 2006. It was twice voted the number one wooden coaster in the world.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
