Disneyland’s Classic “Alice in Wonderland” Attraction Closes Temporarily

22 July 2010 One Comment

After the “California Department of Occupational Safety and Health” inspectors noted a lack of handrails needed for maintenance crews who work on an elevated segment of the ride, Disney voluntarily shut down the classic “Alice in Wonderland” attraction which debuted at the park in 1958. A crew is currently installing safety barriers that were recommended by the inspectors to prevent workers from falling off the elevated portion of the ride & Disney hopes to reopen the attraction within several weeks. Disney officials note that the closure was voluntary, which took place on July 15th, and that there was no official order to close the ride.

The Cal/OSHA inspectors were in the park on a separate matter and did not order closure of the ride, Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said. “We like to have all of our rides ready for our guests,” she said. (Los Angeles Times)
