MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The fair ride that sent eight people to the hospital has been approved to re-open.

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development  informed the owners of the Moonraker ride that it could re-open, now that necessary steps have been taken to secure the ride.

The owners said they are doing extra maintenance on the ride before opening it, plus state inspectors still need to confirm that the ride is in safe operating condition.

It's unclear when the Moonraker will take on Mid-South passengers.
