I have always been a Die hard Disney Fan, and I do think it is good family entertanent over all.

But Sadly there is something about their safety record lately. I have under good report that the main reason alot of the rides are down is to that there is so many violation on some of them, the park safety inspector forced Disney to shut them down untill they get it fix or be fine.

The best example is space mountain the main reason was that the tracks were so bad that they were about to fall apart that is why it is taking so long for them to get the ride up and running, and also some bad desin flaw in the over all track layout (Do some of you remember when that one kid stood up on the ride and lets just say that he lost his head over it?). The person that told me this she use to work at a small amusment park here in Riverside Ca. and the way she told me the worst (at the time)park was dealing with a mouse.

I am not saying this to scare anyone just let you know about this since I do feal that this is too important of an issue to not let the public know about. Myself I still on the rides and still enjoy the over all parks (yes that is including Ca. Adventures) heck I am pass for gawsh sake.

If there is anyone out there that can answer this quation, what happen to the good old days when they had their own onsite crew thatlook at the rides to make sure that everything is safe where the staff is the same one for that ride or rides and they know them realy well like they do their palm of there hands? Or sadly is Mikey (butt head) isener that money hungry to the point that he dose not care about the people that that pays his fat paycheck?

About theme park safety...

AUTHOR: Ihateks - (U.S.A.)

I used to work for Knott's Berry Farm, the Crappiest Place in the West, and the thing is with theme park safety, 90 % of the time when a guest is injured/dies as a result of a ride, it is because that person refused to follow safety guidelines. As to the woman who was decapitated on the Matterhorn, she stood up while the ride was in motion. There is a reason park employees ask that you remain seated and keep all parts of your bodies inside the ride vehicle at all times. If you need more information, check out this site: . Click on a park, or on Safety. Also check out incidents. Most of those times when someone was injured or killed, it was due to disregarding the rules. Yes, I'm aware that there have been deaths due to undiagnosed medical problems, and there have been cases where a ride was defective.
Another example is what happened at Knott's a few years ago. A woman who was very obese rode in the front of one of the boats on a water ride; on top of that, she adjusted her seatbelt to pass across her abdomen.

As a result of both her weight and place in the boat, when the boat had gone up the incline and was making a turn to go down the flume, the boat made too wide of a turn; the boat flipped, and because her belt was too low for safety, she fell out and was killed. Had she chosen to sit in the rear or middle, and had left her seatbelt alone, she would have gotten off the ride wet but alive.

At Knott's, the lack of maintenence is causing rides to fall apart. That, and increasingly bad management is creating extremely poor morale among employees. If you were getting the lowest possible wage, being forced to work for several hours off the clock, being subjected to rude and entitled guests, and having next to no days off (and when they do give you a day off, it's a safe bet you're going to get called in.), do you think you would want to work there? The park is so understaffed, they are pulling untrained custodial people and others not trained or certified to do ride operations (yes, in California it's a state law you must undergo training and be certified to operate an amusement park ride), I'm waiting for that place to hit the trash heap.

So, if you go to a theme park, obey the rules, especially the height, weight and special requirements, and keep all parts of your body inside the ride vehicle at all times, and stay seated. But avoid Knott's--none of their food places can pass a health inspection to save themselves. How do they stay in operation? They grease a few palms.
