MickeyBlog Exclusive: Visitor In ECV Smashes Guardrail In Land Pavilion
Well this is something our MickeyBlogger wasn’t expected to see as he was heading over to The Land Pavilion at EPCOT today. A guest in an ECV scooter seemingly didn’t see the railing to the escalator near Soarin’ and slammed into it a full speed. The result was a large BANG! and the plastic railing casing shattered.
Here’s a closer look:
As its clear to see from the images, there was a TON of debris after the crash.
It was hard to tell how much of that was damage to the escalator and how much was damage to the scooter.
The black casing surrounding the guardrail was smashed off in the collision
The crash also meant that the escalator needed to be shut down while the wreckage was cleared from the area.
The loud noise created during the collision did alarm guests in the area and a crowd did form to see what had happened.
Cast members were quick stationed at the scene to keep guests away from the damage.
It did not appear that the woman involved in the collision was injured in any way.
Signs where quickly put up announcing the closure of the escalator/walkway.
We here at MickeyBlog do hope the driver was okay and will keep you posted of any further updates!
