A spokesperson said a 20-year-old woman sustained suspected spinal injuries on the ride on Wednesday afternoon.
Show authorities confirmed an incident on the No Limit ride, which required paramedics and emergency services to attend.
However, a show spokesperson denied it was the result of a ride malfunction and described it as a “personal health incident”.
The spokesperson said the ride was closed following the incident and was undergoing precautionary checks.
It comes amid heightened focus on safety, with four rides banned by SafeWork SA from this year’s show.
