Another accident at Dland

I heard on the news a yesterday that there has been another Disney-related ride accident. This time, it happened in California Adventure on California Screamin’. One car of 24 people was stopped at the end of the ride, and the car behind it didn’t stop like normal but instead plowed into the first cart. It looks like a bunch of the people were treated at the hospital, but as far as I’ve heard/read, no one has been seriously hurt.

This is really too bad – California Screamin’ is one of my favorite rides and generally a good rollercoaster. It will be closed for the next several days while they try and figure out if it was computer error or human error. Hopefully, they will get it up and running again and whatever had caused the accident will be fixed…

    Don’t expect this ride to reopen soon. It looks like the same problem of interface between software and operator that caused the problems at BTMRR have popped up here. I’m tracking this story at The Disney Blog too.

    Funny, I just followed a link from BoingBoing to The Disney Blog and subscribed to your RSS feed. I was really hoping this would be rider error, since that seens easier to fix than a software bug. I’m glad I had a chance to go on it for the first time last weekend, who knows how long we have to wait to go on it again.
