Disneyland is known for being “The Happiest Place on Earth,” with a long list of incredible rides and attractions for guests to discover. Over the years, experiences like Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, and Matterhorn Bobsleds have entertained and enthralled guests, making the Disneyland Resort one of the most popular vacation destinations on the planet.

Unfortunately, bad things happen at Disney, despite the family-friendly atmosphere Disney and its employees attempt to promote. In the last few months, we’ve seen quite a few incidents occur at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, ranging anywhere from ride breakdowns to full-on fistfights. Guests are also, unfortunately, the victim of theft, whether it be carjacking or personal property inside the actual Disney parks.

Recently, a troubling situation occurred in Disneyland, with local authorities getting involved at a specific fan-favorite attraction.

According to various reports from guests, police were present at the Disneyland Resort Tuesday evening at the Disneyland Resort. Cops reportedly arrived at the scene at Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction, which is a western-theed roller coaster. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad can be found at various other Disney parks and resorts across the globe, including the Walt Disney World Resort in Magic Kingdom and the Disneyland Paris Resort in Chessy, France.

In response to the initial report, several guests commented on what they saw occur. One guest asked, “is this why it was down from, like, 9pm onward? did it ever come back up and THEN this happened? or was this the reason itself?”

At this time, an incident has not been officially confirmed, but Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was closed later Tuesday night, indicating a situation did occur.

As we stated earlier, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is one of Disney’s most popular and iconic roller coasters ever, and can be found across the globe. Guests will find Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland.

We will continue to monitor this situation and update our story as needed.

The newest attraction to open at the Disneyland Resort can actually be found at Disney California Adventure inside Mickey’s Toontown. This entire area was revamped, reopening with stunning new features and experiences for guests to enjoy. The “main attraction” of this overhaul was actually an attraction brought over from Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, known as Minnie & Mickey’s Runaway Railway.

This trackless dark ride takes guests on a fun journey alongside Minnie, Mickey, and Pluto. The ride uses trackless technology similar to that of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
