    Further details from the Mainichi

    A 34-year-old man sustained a minor injury at Tokyo DisneySea on Monday while trying to get off a roller coaster that took off with his safety bar up, police said Tuesday.
    It was the first time for a customer to be injured on an amusement attraction at Tokyo DisneySea or Disneyland, their operator Oriental Land Co. said.
    The accident occurred on a high-speed roller coaster called ''Raging Spirits'' at around 4 p.m. Monday when the man moved his right leg out of one of two trams linked together and onto the loading zone out of fear when the ride took off without the shoulder bar on his seat properly secured, the police said. He sustained a minor injury when his leg was dragged for about 2 meters on the zone.

    Re: Accident on Raging Spirits 5/28

    I am rather curious as to (1) why the shoulder harness came up all of a sudden and (2) why the train was allowed to move with the restraint not locked. I mean, do you pull it back down and hope it doesn't come loose again or do you get out while the train is moving??? scary.

    It sounds like a combination of things. The lap bar shouldn't have gone up, and the man really shouldn't have tried to get off the coaster train. I hope he's ok, and I hope they fix the issue on Raging Spirits so that it doesn't happen again.
