Have been there in the past when an earthquake hit. It takes hours to get anything up and going, even to let people into the stores. It was explained to me that the have to wait a certain amount of time to make sure there will be no more aftershocks, then they have to test all the rides, etc. HOURS. And pity the poor CM's. Everyone complains. It is a good time to grab a seat and a turkey leg or dole whip and people watch!
It would suck to be a CM during an earthquake and having to deal with guests complaining or demanding a refund over something that was waaaaaay beyond their control.
And what if they plan to evacuate the parks and close for the remainder of the day?
Do they ever give a compensation to the guests for when earthquakes occur? Like a discount ticket or a free day ticket or anything like that?

I find it a bit hysterical too ... as news media love drama.
So a quake 108 miles south of Tijuana hits ... Is felt AS FAR NORTH as downtown LA.
If we are making a big enough drama out of this .... then when a bad shaker does hit the area ... will people be able to handle it (?).
I dont blame people for making drama out of earthquakes. You never know where or when one will happen and there's usually a large number of deaths that result. I have a feeling that an earthquake in Mexico is gonna constitute a high death toll.
People will just handle earthquakes the way they do. Of course I am in Indiana and I didnt take the little Illinois earthquake we got two years ago all that seriously. I actually slept through the whole thing. If the magnitude had been bigger I probably would've been dead.

Is it bad of me to agree? The only earthquake I ever experience was a tiny one that occured while I was sleeping. I felt the bed shake but it wasnt any different from when I'm moving around on the bed. I live in a very squeaky house.
