Cal/OSHA closes California Screamin’

Published on April 19, 2013 at 8:51 am with No Comments

There’s good news and bad news regarding Disneyland’s ride closure saga. First the good news; DOSH inspectors arrived at Soarin’ on Thursday morning and blessed the temporary fall protection proposals for maintenance workers, and Soarin’ should be reopening within days. The bad news; Space Mountain’s fixes will take much longer, and April visitors shouldn’t count on Space Mountain being open. More bad news, after the DOSH inspectors finished at Soarin’ they paid a surprise visit to California Screamin’ and demanded to look at several elevated evacuation platforms throughout the track. California Screamin’ was shut down suddenly by DOSH at 1:45 P.M. on Thursday afternoon and was kept closed for the rest of Thursday per the inspectors findings. DCA’s managers scrambled to rewrite evacuation and maintenance procedures for the big coaster on Thursday night, and then train those new procedures to all CM’s for a hopeful reopening on Friday.  Ongoing ride closure discussion on MiceChat HERE. |  Today we have the conclusion of an epic Tokyo Disneyland trip report and a Blu-Ray review of the movie, Lincoln. If you missed it yesterday, please scroll down and enjoy our hard hat tour of Knott’s Berry Farm’s multi-million dollar reinvention of its classic Timber Mountain Log Ride.
