The TÜV is still working on EGF after that incident, it may need a few more weeks.
The coaster remains closed at the moment, park entrance is temporary lowered to 22.50€ (children price).
The german website morgenweb.de gives a bit more information here (In german)
It says EGF is going to be closed for 4 more weeks. They are searching to find if the incident is due to a maintenance problem.
In fact the coaster will certainly be reopened in august, so there's no need to worry for the october trip.
