Disneyland’s Ongoing Ride Closure Ordeal:

Published on April 14, 2013 at 9:43 am with No Comments

Three E Ticket attractions at the Disneyland Resort were suddenly closed on Saturday morning. Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California are now closed indefinitely with Matterhorn returning on Sunday, after state DOSH investigators on Friday disciplined Disneyland for the accident last November where an outside contractor cleaning the Space Mountain roof slipped and was slightly injured. The closed attractions all have at least one backstage area that don’t meet the state requirement of harnessed fall protection for any employee walkway with more than a 30 inch drop opposite a hand rail. Disneyland is rushing to find quick fixes for these backstage areas this weekend to satisfy DOSH, and several other E Tickets were delayed in opening by several hours Saturday morning for inspections. The rest of the Anaheim attractions will be inspected for DOSH compliance in the next few days, and more temporary closures are possible in the days to come.
