LAKE DELTON -- The state has ordered a roller coaster at a Wisconsin Dells resort to close after a rider was thrown from it last month.
 
The state department of safety found four code violations on the Mt. Olympus Theme Park & Water Park Resort ride, plus the lock on the lap bar wasn't working properly.
 
A 64-year-old man was thrown from his seat, fell 15 to 20 feet and landed on the floor on March 6.
 
He came out of a coma Monday. The long term effects of the fall are unknown.
