Back in November, a Disneyland cast member was struck by a train while crossing the tracks on Space Mountain. Fortunately he survived, and sued Disneyland for over $200,000. During a ride inspection, it was determined that Space Mountain, Soarin' Over California, and Matterhorn didn't meet safety regulations and were all subsequently closed.
Yesterday the rides were reopened, and we at the Disneyland Report visited the park to welcome them back. Space Mountain riders enjoyed relatively short wait times (45 minutes) with no noticeable changes, as the new additions were mainly for safety reasons. So head over to Disneyland Resort today to celebrate Star Wars Day, and the reopening of Disney's favorite roller coaster.
