71 people were rescued from the monorail. Passengers testify that they smelled “smoke and the smell of burnt rubber.”
Monorail passengers were evacuated after one of the trains got stuck on the tracks. As it turns out, the probable cause was a punctured tire. A dangerous incident occurred on Tuesday at the Walt Disney World theme park in Florida.
Tourists couldn’t get out of the queue at Disneyland
The worst thing you can imagine on a roller coaster is being stuck high above the ground for hours, often in an unnatural position. Fortunately, in the event of a cable car breakdown in Florida, travelers stayed on the train, which is designed to facilitate their transport between attractions and moves in one fixed position. This does not change the fact that for many of them it was an unpleasant experience.
“We heard a loud bang and then saw a flash of light. Then the railway slowed down to a complete stop.”
– said one of the passengers in an interview with local television. “It was nice to finally get out of here,” the man concluded.
Photos from the event can be seen in the material prepared by the American television FOX 35 Orlando. According to them, a total of 71 passengers were evacuated from the monorail, which took about an hour and 20 minutes, and the reason for the breakdown was probably a flat tire. Passengers reported that when the ride went out, there was smoke and the smell of burnt rubber in the air. The air conditioning also did not work – those waiting to be evacuated gathered near the windows, which they were allowed to open.
It is one of the largest amusement parks in the world
Disney World, located near Orlando, Florida, is the largest Disneyland in the world in terms of area. The park covers an area of 12,732 hectares (for comparison, the Parisian equivalent covers an area of 2,230 hectares). An amusement park located in the capital of France can also make you feel dizzy, as one of our editors found out. Prices in the entertainment center can be exorbitant, especially in the case of gastronomy and souvenirs. However, the European Disney park is definitely the most accessible and cheapest from the point of view of Polish tourists.
