Unfortunately, I don't think a lot of people really knew or thought about that until it failed.
I was at the park on Saturday when the 4.1 hit, my friends were there the night before on Friday when the bigger one hit. A few of us on Main Street ( Saturday ) felt the tremor where we were standing, the vast majority of people didn't notice at all. The horse pulling the trolley shuddered a bit before it hit, but not more than a second or two before.
I get that they had to shut down all the attractions until the all-clear was received, but why Mr. Lincoln? I figured it was the one thing I could go watch while the rest of the park re-opened and even that was closed? Was there some chance he'd come to life and attack? ( aka - Westworld Syndrome. ) He could have done the whole show sitting down and I would have been fine with it.
Anyhow, it was no big deal and the vast majority of people didn't even notice it. Now the reactions of people in the park to finding out that attractions were closed? Oh man, I was way more concerned with them. People just lose their marbles and go on the psychotic warpath. Way to go humanity! Way to keep your cool. Geez.
Do they usher people out of the stores and stuff along Main Street as well?
If they aren't ushering people out of the shops, and only Lincoln was still closed, then it was checking the hydraulics and show elements themselves before reopening.
Do they have a general announcement during an earthquake. I remember on the Japan Quake, videos at TDL had the "Ladies and Gentlemen, we are currently experiencing an earthquake..." (In multiple languages) Curious if Disneyland uses a simular announcement....
I was up at Bob's Big Boy in Burbank when the earthquake hit, but I actually didn't feel it.
No, no announcement. I was on Main Street out in the open and if one was made anywhere, you'd think this place would have been the most likely to hear one. It would probably panic some people so maybe that was a good call not to. Also, the shops did remain open while Lincoln closed but I still buy Mycroft's explanation. Yes, they ushered people out of the show.
In Oceanside here, we felt it. Granted it was small though.
I was at home in Hollywood but didn't feel a thing. All weekend long. Nothing. My mom who lives in La Habra and my brother in Mission Viejo both texted me to see if I was fine. I was like, huh?
A bridge to what?
Yes they do.Quote:
Earthquakes don't seem to make any noise.
Odd thing to say one sentence after you said they don't :???:Quote:
Although in '94 I seem to recall there was noise, but I think it sounded like something hitting or slamming.
