    This was just Breaking News on ABC. There was no report on what happened to the CM, but the ride is shut down at the moment.

    I hope they're okay I always thought the loading area was a little sketchy, so it'll be interesting to get more information on this one.

    CM fell at loading platform. Minor injuries. Ride still down.

    I always worry since their legs get SOOOO CLOSE to the track and vehicles moving at them. I don't know, just seems like it could be a little safer for them.

    Does anyone know if the Matterhorn has OSHA-approved fall protection, or if it has a grandfathered status and is therefore exempt?

    Maybe if we are lucky the Matterhorn can get some ugly temporary safety railings.

    Maybe OSHA will require new and comfortable seats for the ride vehicles.

    They added quite a bit on the last major refurb... The "drop" at the loading part is NOT high enough to require it.

    It appears to have reopened so all is well.

    While its sad that a CM was injured... I feel injured after every CRAM my 73" frame into the bobsled session. The WORST ride vehicle in the entire park.

    I find the seats fine, it is supposed to be a bobsled and if you sit in it like a chair it should be uncomfortable. Shoulders forward not upward.

    Well, I think you're taking the ride a little too literally. I'm not wearing a space suit on Space Mountain.

    I find it funny that with the refurb/rebuild they kept the breaking system that drops you like 3 inches real hard at the platform. Man that hurts when they do that. I had to stop riding it for a while for fear of getting any shorter.
