DOSH Closes Disneyland Attractions For Safety Violations:

Published on April 13, 2013 at 3:56 pm with 1 Comment

Three E Ticket attractions at the Disneyland Resort have been suddenly closed this weekend. The Matterhorn, Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California are now closed indefinitely, 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.

    Fantasmic! is also in jeopardy of not performing tonight, due to issues with the stage lifts that transport performers to and from the stage. Mickey Mouse needs to wear a safety harness is what it boils down to, and that’s not a part of the show they can just cut out.
