Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster closed yesterday after injury and June autopsy released

Local news is reporting that the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster attraction at Disney-MGM Studios was closed yesterday after a 59-year old man reported ill effects from the attraction. Closing the coaster was likley done out of an abundance of caution, but that’s a good thing when you’re dealing with 2000+ guests an hour roaring through your attraction.

The attraction re-opened after inspections were completed and found nothing abnormal.

Also of interest, the final autopsy results from the 12-year old boy who died after riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster back in June were released yesterday. They confirmed the initial beliefs that they boy had a pre-existing condition and his death was from natural causes, not from any error in operation on Disney’s part. Still, my sympathies go out to his family. I do not want to out live my son and he’s already a coaster junkie at 3 years old. (Link)

  1. I thought the link was going to be about your son riding coasters.

    What coasters have you been able to take him on? We took our 3 year old on the little coaster in Toontown, and on his birthday The Matterhorn. Yes, The Matterhorn.

    I was a little nervous, as all I could think about before and after were all the stories regarding children dying on e-ticket rides (is The Matterhorn still considered an e-ticket?), but he loved it.

  2. Indigo is only tall enough to go on Goofy’s Barnstormer. But he really really wants to go on all of them. on GB he even puts his hands up in the air and he screams and laughs the whole way around.
