California Adventure's Mulholland Madness coaster closed

Posted Wednesday, March 7, 2001 3:34 AM | Contributed by supermandl

Disney's California Adventure has closed its Mulholland Madness coaster to make "adjustments." DCA officials say the closure has nothing to do with several recent accidents.

Read the story from the Union Tribune.

From The Article:
"The attraction was not performing to our standards," Gomez said. "So we have shut it down to allow us to do a couple of things. One is to slow the speed a bit and the second is to smooth out the ride."

Hello, it's a Mack Wild Mouse! It is supposed to be fast and jerky. What were they expecting? At least I was able to get a few laps on it during the perview days. Anyone want to bet that this becomes the world's least wild Wild Mouse?

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Can't wait to ride Legoland's new wild mouse coaster. It also is made by Mack but this coaster has a first drop and it will be completed by next month.

If your an adult, the Mack wild mouses hurt your shoulders pretty bad in the turns from running into the padding on the outside of the cars. So therefore, I can see why Disney would want to tame the ride.

The seats of the wildmouse form Mack, are to short and to small. It's a kiddieseat.

I love the carriers on Maurer & Soehne Wild Mouses. They are comfortable, and as roomy as they come.

I have always liked the Vekoma wild mouse coasters.

Yeah Disney made this kind of goof before with Splash Mountain. Built it with a stock O.D.Hopkins flume. "What, you mean you're supposed to get wet?" When Micheal Eisner got drenched on a test run, it was "closed for minor adjustments."
