Tokyo Disneyland Suspends Parades

9 Jan

Parades at Tokyo Disneyland have been suspended indefinitely. AFP has details:

A 300-kilogramme (660 pound) ornament fell off the float during a parade on Tuesday, said Oriental Land Co., which operates the park.

After the accident, the park suspended parades while it conducts an investigation and does not know when they will resume, Oriental Land said. Amusement rides were functioning as normal.

During the parade, the float featuring Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear character broke on a pole which supported a number of balls designed like planets.

“It slowly bent and fell off,” said Oriental Land spokesman Hiroshi Suzuki. “It landed right in front of some guests.”

No one was injured.
