Emergency Closure of Soarin' at Epcot and California Adventure

May 4th 2012 at 9:56

Disney have closed Soarin' at both Epcot and Disney's California Adventure for emergency maintenance. Yesterday, a rider was able to leave the ride car after the harness had locked in place, and the vehicle was about to take off. No injuries were sustained at all, but now investigators must look into both attractions to work out how the guest managed to leave the attraction. This is bad timing for Epcot, which already has Test Track closed for an extended period, Soarin' is the parks primary attraction so you can guarantee that Disney will be working to re-open the ride as soon as possible.
