We’ve been keeping you up to date over the past few days regarding the closure of three major Disneyland attractions, with Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California still closed. You can catch up on that here. Now, California state regulators want to fine Disney almost $235,000 for violating safety regulations which led to a worker being injured at the Space Mountain ride last fall.

The Orange County Register reported that fines have been proposed by the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health. These penalties arose from an accident in November when a contract worker slipped and suffered broken bones while he was cleaning the exterior of the Space Mountain attraction at Disneyland. Disney has not announced if they have decided to attempt to appeal the penalties.

The Disneyland Resort closed three rides over the weekend while the company reviewed their safety protocols. Two of these attractions — Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California in Disney California Adventure — remain closed.
