One of our regular customers came into the book store I help out on Wednesdays. I have been telling him how great Disneyland is now so he and some friends went last weekend. The Matterhorn broke down early in the day and was not operational for most of the day. Space Mountain was down for 3/4 of the day. They were stuck on Pirates for over an hour just sitting and watching the pirate ship bombard the fort. No warning, no announcemnets at all for an hour. The boats just bobbled in the water in the middle of a battle scene, the lights never came up for that hour. Splash was also down. Big Thunder also went down sometime during the day and was down for hours. Needless to say he was not impressed with the "New and Improved" Disneyland.
What the heck is going on out there. I thought T. Irby and his ilk were gone and that the rides were being taken care of. This is just not right. Here I am building the Park up on how great it is, and this has to happen to someone I know through a workplace and he was not happy. Never got to go on Space Mountain or Matterhorn or Big Thunder. I wish I could remember which day he was there, but I can't.
