You have to copy the whole thing to get to the link. Maybe this should go to the news section instead. Or better yet:Click Here

According to the Mainichi Daily News website, it was Space Mountain which derailed near the end of the ride at the station. Another wheel assembly problem it seems.

I suppose this too can be blamed on Eisner...:)

Not on Eisner. Maybe on Eisner-son.

I just hope it was not the same problem as Big Thunder Mountain. If so I could see alot of Disney Roller coasters closed.

All I have to say is this is pathetic on Disney's side! If they are the leaders in the biz (which they are in attendance) then their maintance should also follow this trend.

Are we all forgetting that Disney does not operate Tokyo Disneyland?
Friday, December 5, 2003 10:51 PM
Who operates it?
this Disney business where Disney does not own Disney parks escapes me.
Friday, December 5, 2003 11:10 PM
The Oriental Land Company owns and operated Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.

If I am not mistaken Tokyo Disneyland has the highest attendance of any other park in the world. Don't you think that sort give earn them to set the bar. I agree that thing do happen but the fact this happened 2 months after a deadly accident at Dinseyland is not a good sign.
While they are operated by a different company I feel they should still have a reputation keep since they use the Disney name. Again this is all just my 2 cents.

And they DO keep the reputation....better then Disney themselves lately. Unlike Eisner, OLC is willing to sink the money into both of their parks with results that show.
As for what when wrong...hey, sometimes stuff happens that no one car forsee. Even a Disney park. I'm sure OLC will correct the problem and you'll never see it again anytime soon. At least they are not dropping cleats onto people's heads there!

Tokyo Disneyland is no longer #1 in attendance, but only because DisneySeas is drawing around 10M per year. And even with that, Tokyo Disneyland still is second only to WDW/MK.

I dont think its smart to jump to conclusions especially since TDL is operated by OLC and not Disney itself. Even then, with all the maintenance in the world, accidents happen...it just sucks its on another Disney coaster, but from the articles it didnt seem to be that big of a deal.
