Space Mountain officially reopens at Disneyland

By Gabrielle Washington,

After being shut down in April for a violation of safety regulations, the popular ride Space Mountain is back up and running at Disneyland theme park.

According to The Associated Press, state officials said the safety rules were broken when a contractor had fallen from cleaning the slanted roof of the popular ride Space Mountain. The contractor is said to have broken several bones as a result of the fall.

There were 6 violations adding up to $235,000 against Disney from The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, according to Design & Trend, due to the contractor’s dangerous down fall. There was also a $61,000 fine for safety violations against the contracting company.

Along with Space Mountain, The Matterhorn Bobsleds and Soarin’ Over California in Disney’s California Adventure theme park were also closed down to further ensure that the safety regulations are being followed there as well. Both of these rides have also been reopened, according to Latinos Post.
