Hello MW have a question ? Has anyone ever experienced a Earthquake while on a ride at the park? I was just on Pirates of the caribbean and was thinking what if ..., let us know if you have experienced anything ?
We were at DL once when there was earthquake. We were on Astro Blasters and didn't feel a thing but upon exiting the ride we heard about it and they had temporarily shut down most of the rides in Tomorrowland. Only for like 15 to 20 minutes though. - Aquata292.2 #659 4-23-12 7:57PMLike Reply
I was on Star Tours during an earthquake years ago -- my Dad and I exited and went to go on some other attractions and they were all closed because they had to check everything for safety. :( While I understand why they were doing it, it was such a bummer because everything was closed for the rest of the night and it was our last night! - BreadAndButterfly505.3 #234 4-23-12 8:00PMLike Reply
Its funny that you ask this question because I always think that when Im in Space Mountain. I always ask this question and my BF always laughs at me. I dont think Space Mountain, Screamin, or WOD are good rides to be while during an earthquake. But Im pretty sure they are built to outstand a big earthquake.. or so I hope... - MagicalLand378.4 #358 4-23-12 8:15PMLike Reply
I would say everything is earthquake-safe. If we have a measurable earthquake we cycle out and wait for facilities to check everything out. It's very frustrating for guests and cast alike. - plaidtink315.5 #542 4-23-12 8:39PMLike Reply
I haven't personally, but as CMs, we're all trained for emergencies. Its part of our basic training. For attractions though, it may take a little time, but the attraction CMs have to pass an emergency evacuation before they are even signed off to work the attraction - BaseballMickey_CM2859.4 #16 4-23-12 8:42PMLike Reply
I have never thought about that before...I grew up in CA and experienced many earthquakes but never once at DL or even thought about one at DL...I think I go into the whole mindset that nothing bad happens there...kind of childish I guess but I just don't think bad thoughts while I'm there.....I will now ;) lol j/k - cdeley393.0 #342 4-23-12 8:49PMLike Reply
In attractions, we are also consistently quizzed and updated on earthquake procedures. - plaidtink315.5 #542 4-23-12 8:56PMLike Reply
