    In all seriousness, I wholeheartedly agree with this! In case it wasn't obvious, I was being totally and completely sarcastic about closing Mission: Space. It's one of my favorite rides!

    Far as the tram incident goes, I hope the guy is going to be OK. Seems like he was trying to do something nice for someone else and it sort of backfired on him.

    This is not at all fair to the people who died or their families. All the warning signs in the world can't help you if you have a physical problem that you don't know about. I don't think there was a single case where someone has died on a Disney attraction from a condition that they knew about.

    Dan I don't think that is true. One of the recent incidents involved a 50ish woman from Germany (I think) with a history of high blood pressure. I want to say it was the on ToT or Mission Space. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

    Yeah, as I was typing I kinda had a mental tickle that there was ONE. But by far it's been the undiagnosed thing.

    Simple Darwinism will separate those of us who stay seated in the tram from the fools who go diving for strollers and other dropped goodies.
    Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

    Talking Re: Man fell off tram at WDW

    It's quite clear...

    "Welcome aboard. For your children's safety, please seat them toward the inside. For your safety, do not stand or try to exit the tram while it's in motion. If you lose something from the tram, please wait til our next stop and notify the operator. Thank you."

    "Bienvenidos abordo. Por favor, permansca sentado mientras que el vehiculo este en movimiento y siente a los ninos en la parte central del asiento. Si pierde algo del vehiculo, espere hasta que lleguemos a nuestra siguiente parada y luego notifica al operador. Gracias."

    I don't know how much clearer they can make it. People are just stupid or not listening or don't care. Besides, most of this is common sense (which is quickly becoming uncommon sense).

    I have to say Dan you took the words out of my mouth again!

    Interestingly enough when you search the DarwinAwards web site there are no Disney entries at all... I would have thought the German woman or the Idiot who jumped from the Skyway in DLR would have at least had an honorable mention.

    I believe people are becoming more stupid every year . Maybe there's something in the water or in the french fries people eat?

    The tram is like one of my favorite rides in the park! lol Then you get on the Monorail, which from the old Tiny Toons movie, was the only ride that the Hamton J. Pig character and his family had gone on. And yes, I do know my 90's cartoon Trivia :-)

    Re: Man fell off tram at WDW

    Its sad that people do get hurt but Disney has many rules and regulations to their parks that something like this should NOT happen. I feel bad for the guy but he probably broke a rule or two

    The other problem on the trams (and in the parks, in general) is the unintelligible announcements from cast members with limited English skills. It's hard to follow safety instructions when you can't understand them.
    I ride the trams mostly at D/L and the kids love to bounce around and swing out from the seat and I'm suprised this doesnt happen more often. I've observed that the people who seem to have problems following the rules dont have a problem because of a CM's inability to comunicate in english, but because of their own inability to understand english. This problem isnt restricted to the trams either, I could give you a long list of things kids do that are not safe this takes us back to people not managing their children in most cases.

    The parking lot trams are the same as the trams used on the backlot tours at Disney's MGM and those have pop up sides. Of course this will slow down the load unload times quite a bit which is probably why the parking lot trams dont have them.
