Police blocked off the parking lot and a bomb squad destroyed the device.

Kelly Albrecht of Cranberry Township, Pa., is charged with inducing panic. Police arrested him when he returned to his car after visiting the amusement park.

Park officials and police wouldn t say what led them to the arrest.

Albrecht is due in court next week. A phone number for him was not available.
