Space Mountain Reopens at Disneyland

One of Disneyland’s most popular rides has reopened after the company declined to appeal a workplace safety case.

The Orange County Register reports ( http://bit.ly/YtNgUy ) Space Mountain reopened Friday evening.

The attraction was closed earlier this month after state officials said safety rules were violated when a contractor fell and suffered broken bones while cleaning Space Mountain’s slanted roof.

The contract company was fined nearly $61,000 for the safety violations. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health proposed a nearly $235,000 penalty against Disney in connection with the contractor’s injury.

Disney did not appeal by Friday’s deadline.

Disney closed two other rides — the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland and Soarin’ Over California in Disney California Adventure — to evaluate the safety of employees who maintain them.

Both attractions have reopened.
