New accident at DLP Big Thunder Mountain
THE Big Thunder Mountain train at Disneyland Paris has been hit by its second accident in six months after two wagons were derailed.
The park statement says that nobody was hurt, but other sources are saying that two people were slightly hurt - a 8 year old girl had pain in a knee and one adult said that he had some pain in his back. In addition, one young child left badly shocked in the accident which saw 31 people evacuated and the attraction closed for checks.
The front two wagons of the "train de la mine" came off the tracks at the Marne-la-Vallée (Seine-et-Marne) site. Fortunately the train was going at a slow pace on a flat section of the track.
The ride will remain closed for the next few days and possibly weeks while an investigation is carried out.
