Disneyland Reopens Space Mountain After Three Week Closure
The ride was shut down after receiving a safety citation related to the injury of an employee of a contractor in November.
Disneyland's Space Mountain ride, which was closed three weeks ago after a safety citation was issued to the Anaheim resort, has reopened as of Friday night at 6:30 pm, a spokesperson tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The ride was voluntarily closed on April 13 after the resort received a safety citation from California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health office in Santa Ana.
OSHA listed seven violations, including three classified as "willful serious," that originated from an incident involving an employee of a contractor who was injured in November while working on the ride. At the time, Disney noted that that closures were not due to guest safety concerns.
Two other attractions, Matterhorn and Soarin' California, were also shut down on April 13 along with Space Mountain as part of the voluntary closures. Both of those rides reopened within a week.
OSHA proposed $234,850 in total penalties related to the safety violations. Disneyland is currently in discussions over those penalties, the resort spokesperson relayed.
