omg, the monorail is stuck (at Disney)

Thursday, February 21, 2002 2:13 PM
I just saw on the news that the monrail is stuck 25 feet off the ground. The cars are full. People are being taking out by age and car, young and old first. This is scary looking, I have never heard of this ride being stuck. Sorrry this is non coaster, but it's serious, it's breaking news on tv

Oh no! The monorail is stuck! This is as serious as Titan's saftey system working and stopping the lift! Oh my GOD!

Don't we all love sensationalism? The media really needs to get a hold of itself and stop doing that... Anything they can make sound like a big event they attack.

OCHSA, I wasn't making fun of you, I'm just making fun of the media. Now, if you are a part of the media, and you work for the channel/network/new paper that is covering this, I am making fun of you. But I doubt you are, so I'm not making fun of you or anything like that. It's just that the media loves blowing up stupid little things like this. I'm sure the monorail has been stuck many times before. How old is the ride? 40 years? I doubt this would be the first time it happend if it is old.

Sorry, OCHSA Bud, but this really IS pretty much a non-event.

Was it Monorail Purple? It is the oldest one in the fleet. I got stuck on it a few months ago.

Maybe so, but it is in no way shape or form worth getting into.

If Markey hears this he'll want to ban trains.  While were at it, we might as well ban buses, cars and airpleanes since people have died on them too.  And come to think of it people have died while walking too!   Maybe we need to ban walking.

The only thing serious about this is the reaction of the press.
