    All the Disneyland guide books make mention of the exciting ride without a handrail.

    I'm guessing that DL was pushingg back on some other issue, so Cal/OSHA threw down the "Alice Card."

    In a ride climate where thrill ride accidents occur on a regular basis, it's pure polysaturated bull that OSHA insists on having it's way with a ride that has operated without incident since 1958. It's nothing more than another massive regulatory that's practically autonomous, meddlesome, and bad for business. Potential legitimate lawsuits over theme park incidents are plenty of motivation for themeparks to operate safely within reason. The best solution here would be to get rid of OSHA.

    Dusty's idea for popup rails looks to be about the only aesthetic compromise that will help to preserve the magical image of a catapillar traveling across a garden. I liked Pengy's concept of a grassy blind. I think some four leaf clovers should be included amongst the grass blades in order to bestow good luck on Disneyland with respect to any future encounters with OSHA.

    from the other articles i have read(mouseplanet), the railing is not for during the rides operation, it is more for evacuation and for CMs when they are working on that part of the track. so a pop up railing that is hidden for the duration of the ride is ideal. it doesnt need to pop up when the ride vehicle passes by. you dont see the railings pop up during indiana jones when you pass by them, but when the ride breaks down they automatically pop up. sorry for rambling but there it is.

    I don't think that even Tim Burton would desire to retheme the classic Alice ride.



    You can put lipstick on a regulatory pig (OSHA). Ir's still a regulatory pig.

    sounds better... but if they dont need the rails for operation.... why stop operating the ride?

    Because maintenance still checks the ride and presumably walks that track. That's when the rails would need to be there. The other reason to stop the ride is if it is true that Disney has been saying that they would fix it for 2 years and hasn't. That's just very poor judgment on a safety issue.
