Disneyland Space Mountain forced to close because a guest climbed off the ride while in motion!
The Orange County Register is reporting that Anaheim police confirmed a guest climbed out of his seat while the ride was in motion causing the ride to shut down. “He didn’t fall out. He had to maneuver himself around the safety mechanism.” said Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt.
The guest was in his early 20’s and had been diagnosed with cognitive disabilities. A cast member realized that he had left the ride vehicle and the attraction was forced to stop. This happened during a slow portion of the ride before the initial climb. The guest was uninjured but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The Disneyland attraction has remained closed since the incident.
