    Default Skyliner Crash

    This doesn't bode very well. I wonder whether it will close for re-testing?

    I've no way of verifying this but it was posted on a Disney fansite from someone purportedly inside one of the cars.

    "So this was our first experience riding the skyliner…
    My wife and I were on the yellow car pinned into the aqua car on the photos above. It wasn’t a crash.. it was a crushing. The system was down for around 10 minutes and we were sitting in the car while a cast member was going around to cars doing a Disney trivia game with us all. When the system came back on, the aqua car didn’t move, we crushed up against it and the cars behind us crushed into us. You could here the plexiglass breaking and the metal on metal. They freed us up fairly quickly, but it was a sudden drop and loud. I know at least 3 of the cars were damaged, our doors were bent up and the vented glass was broken. Luckily we were at Riviera turnstile so we were evacuated quickly."

    It's being reported here as a pile-up, not a crash. One car got stuck at Riviara's turn and the others piled up behind it.

    Not sure "indefinitely" isn't a bit of a loaded word. Makes it sound like it may never run again.

    It's a real shame, as people are loving the new system. But...it's got to be safe, obviously.

    Oh dear, hope they get it sorted before we return. Quite fancy riding it but not good with heights so wouldn't want to get out when it is up high....

    Oops!!

    I love that phrase in the first link from Deb's post - a Disney person "reached out". Don't you just love PR speak.

    It's still not clear what happened in all this, although Disney are insisting there was no crash of any kind. The anecdotal evidence would suggest there was a definite physical coming together, and that the system malfunctioned in some way. Hopefully, one of the local news agencies will get a more detailed story in due course.

    How about making that "it's a Clintwinsky"? He was there, too, ya know.
