Largest Earthquake in Years Rocks Disneyland
As people celebrate our country’s Independence Day, a large earthquake shook parts of Southern California. This was the largest earthquake to hit the region in twenty years.
Disneyland Temporarily Affected
“Several rides at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, were closed following an earthquake. Although the 6.4-magnitude quake didn’t cause any major damage to the Anaheim area, several rides were closed for safety inspections and testing as a precaution.
Based on a screenshot taken from the Disneyland app, several rides were “temporarily closed” following the quake. Those rides included Hyperspace Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, the Haunted Mansion, and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
“Several (not all) attractions at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are temporarily closed/offline due to the earthquake. Inspections normal after seismic activity. Expect impacted rides to reopen soon,” Tribune Media reporter Scott Gustin tweeted along with the screenshot.”
