Disney parks are known for their enchanting atmosphere, beloved characters, thrilling rides, and immersive experiences that transport guests into the worlds of Disney’s most iconic stories. Each Disney park around the world offers a unique blend of magic, culture, and entertainment, making them destinations of wonder and delight for people of all ages.
The original Disneyland Resort, opened in 1955 by Walt Disney himself, is a true classic. Divided into two parks -Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. Disneyland Resort offers a mix of nostalgic charm and modern attractions. The original Sleeping Beauty Castle and attractions like Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean continue to captivate guests.
Walt Disney World Resort in Florida features four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Disney World also is home to water parks, golf courses, and resort hotels, with iconic Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth, Hollywood Tower of Terror, and Pandora – The World of Avatar. Walt Disney World Resort offers a diverse range of experiences.
Disneyland Paris captures the magic of Disney with a European flair. The resort includes Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, featuring Sleeping Beauty Castle and attractions such as Ratatouille: The Adventure, Pirates of the Caribbean, Phantom Manor, Big Thunder Mountain, Crush’s Coaster, Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain and much more.
Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain is known as a thrill ride for guests 1.2m or 3.9 ft. Disneyland Paris describes Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain as “guests will launch themself into Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain for a thrilling takeover of a classic space attraction. Enlist in the Rebel Alliance and attend a briefing from Admiral Ackbar. Your mission – to pilot a reconnaissance vessel and spy on an Imperial Star Destroyer.”
In a social media post, Disneyland guests were waiting to ride their first “big kid” ride which was Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain when the car returns to the starting point and another guest is found unconscious with a child looking up at her. After a few minutes the guest woke back up and seemed to be okay.
“About to jump on our first ‘big ride’ on day 1 earlier this week and the car pulls up with an unconscious woman and a slightly bewildered ~9 yo looking up at her. Think she was ok after a few mins but she was out cold as it pulled in. Gave a few members in our party pause for thought before jumping on.”
Experiencing unconsciousness while on a Disney attraction is rare and concerning and can occur due to a combination of factors, including physical and emotional responses to the intense sensory experiences provided by the attractions. Disney theme parks are designed to be immersive and exhilarating, but for some individuals, the combination of excitement, motion, and other factors might lead to fainting or loss of consciousness during the ride.
If you experience any issues while at the Disney parks, let your nearest Cast Member know and they will get you the help that you need.
