Ok, this is kind of an OC post, but…

…it always scares me when I hear of rides closing down at the Magic Kingdom because there was an accident and people were hurt. I always imagined those rides to be safe-safe-safe. I heard there was an accident this weekend and thought back to some of the rides that are no longer around due to safety issues. My favorite of the rides of yore are the Sky Baskets. I miss those things.

  1. They want you to believe they’re safe, otherwise no one would be on them. I forget where I looked, but I was doing research for a project once, and by googling a bunch of stuff, I ended up finding reports of *every* accident sustained at a California Disney-run amusement park, and you’d be appalled at how many people lose toes, fingers, and even whole hands and feet on their rides. Seriously- it was disgusting to read about it. And it wasn’t a fake site, either, it was some health company’s report. Scary stuff.
