Monorail Crash at Walt Disney World

Man. I Love Disney World. And Ain't Nothin' Gonna Keep Me Off the Monorail.

Which is something. These things never crash. This is the first fatal accident in the 38-year history of the parks monorail system.

More on the story from KCRA.

The Disney Monorail. One fatality in 38 years of operation. A Better Record than the Skyway Had. Or the Matterhorn.

Finally found a picture of the actual mash-up. Awesome. Right over the Ticket and Transportation Center. Man, they must have been working all night to get ’em moved so guests coming in Sunday Morning would see no sign.

Kerslam! Don't Know How It Happened, But Keep In Mind--This Never Happens at Disney. Seriously. All condolences to the poor guy who died and his family, but I'm guessing this has to be driver error.

They should update their monorails anyway. I’m glad I’m not going to Disney World right now, though. Not only is Space Mountain closed until August for refurbishment (and I hope they make the stars and asteroids and whatnot better looking and brighter), which as also closed the Tomorrowland Transit Authority (one of my favorite parts of going to Walt Disney World)–not only all that, but now they’ll be down two monorails. They probably have a spare or two they can get up and running in a few days, but still . . .

Do you think dude was texting his girlfriend? Somehow, I am suspicious. Texting seems to be at the heart of this kind of thing. When all the facts come out. But, I’ll be the first to admit I’m wrong.

Laterz, Internetz.
