Disneyland Closes Three Rides to Review Safety

Three rides at Disneyland, including Space Mountain, were temporarily closed over the weekend, the AJC reports. The company voluntarily closed the rides to review its employee safety protocols after receiving citations from state regulators.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health issued the citations on Friday. The decision to shut down Space Mountain, the Matterhorn Bobsleds, and Soarin’ Over California was made out of an abundance of caution, said Disneyland Spokeswoman Suzi Brown.

The citations were related to an incident in November. A contracted worker was injured while maintaining the exterior of Space Mountain. According to the citation on the Cal/OSHA website, Disneyland failed to correct “know fall hazards” that existed on the exterior of Space Mountain.

While the Matterhorn reopened on Sunday, it is unclear how long the other two rides will remain closed.
