Even if they were the same make/model, the Disneyland accident was due to improperly tightened bolts on a wheel assembly. At least that's what the accident report says (see page 8).

If World of Color Paris gives them the boost that World of Color gave California Adventure, this park is really in for a treat. And this just gets me even more excited to visit Europe someday!

This is what I believe to be correct as well. Despite popular belief Vekoma also had nothing to do with the original Space Mountain track at Disneyland either.

This seems like it could be a really cool concept! I'm glad the resort is getting some improvements, although I was more hoping for some love for the Studios. I'm really liking the look of this nighttime show though! I wonder if it will run year-round or just peak season? This could be a bit of a challenge because during some points in the year it doesn't get dark in France until pretty late...

12 Year old boy left paralyzed after riding Disneyland Paris' Tower of Terror. News story: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2072092/Bautista-Riera-Disneyland-Paris-Tower-Terror-ride-leaves-boy-12-paralysed.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

12-year-old boy left paralysed after going on Disneyland Paris Tower of Terror rideX-rays reported to show he suffered spinal injuries
Ride simulates lift plunging 199ft after lightning strike

Injured: 12-year-old Bautista Riera has been paralysed from the neck down after riding the Tower of Terror at Disneyland Paris
A 12-year-old boy is in a critical condition having been paralysed from the neck down after going on a sudden-drop ride at Disneyland Paris.
Bautista Riera, from Argentina, is in intensive care after riding the amusement park's Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction which simulates a lift plunging 199ft after being hit by lightning.
According to reports, x-rays showed he suffered a 'spine and bone contusion'.

Bautista reportedly complained to his father, a doctor, that he felt sick shortly after leaving the ride and was taken to the park's infirmary.
His condition rapidly deteriorated and he was taken to Paris' Necker hospital for children.
By the time he arrived at the hospital's neurology unit he was already paralysed in his upper limbs.

The paralysis quickly spread to his lower limbs and he suffered respiratory arrest before being rushed to intensive care.

Drop: the Tower of Terror attraction simulates a lift plunging 199ft after being hit by lightning
According to a report in the Buenos Aires Herald Bautista suffered spinal cord injuries and is in a serious condition.
His uncle told the paper that the boy's condition has stabilised although nd he is breathing with the help of an artificial respirator after suffering complications and pneumonia.

Disneyland Paris is Europe's most popular tourist attraction and the Tower of Terror, which was opened in 2008, is one of its most adrenalin-fuelled rides.

Attractions: Disney say Bautista Riera had been on three rides before complaining to his father that he felt sick
On its website the Park states: 'Prepare yourself for a mind-blowing adrenalin rush The ascent is followed by a dizzying drop faster than the speed of gravity. The abyss awaits you – Drop in if you dare!'

According to Bautista's family he was in good health and played rugby, basketball and practised martial arts.
A spokesman for Disneyland Paris said the boy had been on three rides at Walt Disney Studios before feeling unwell.
He said: 'When he was accompanied to the care centre, the child could walk.'
In 2009 a British teenager claimed that going on an almost identical Disney ride at the Florida park had caused her to suffer a heart attack.
In 2005, the then 16-year-old Leanne Deacon's heart stopped and she suffered a brain haemorrhage after riding the Disney World-MGM Studios' The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride several times.

Wow, that's terrible, my thoughts go out to that boy and his family.

With that said, how could something like this happen on Tower of Terror? It's hard to believe that everything was perfectly normal and then he got off with a spinal injury. Maybe he was struck with a loose article while riding or something? Or perhaps there was a pre-existing condition that he didn't know about?


P.S. I hate news outlets coverage of amusement ride incidents. They're just bad reporting.

http://corporate.disneylandparis.com/CORP/EN/Neutral/Images/uk-2012-01-10-ligne-de-credit.pdf

Euro Disney S.C.A. (the "Company"), parent company of Euro Disney Associés S.C.A., operator of Disneyland® Paris (together the "Group"), announces that, on January 6, 2012, it has obtained an additional standby revolving credit facility (the "Additional Facility") of € 150 million from The Walt Disney Company. This Additional Facility expires on September 30, 2018 and was advanced in connection with the approval from its lenders to increase the Group’s investments by up to € 250 million. These investments correspond to the annual recurring investment budget for fiscal year 2012 and a multi-year expansion of the Walt Disney Studios® Park, which includes a new attraction. The Additional Facility is separate from the € 100 million existing standby revolving credit facility (the "Existing Facility"), which expires on September 30, 2014 and is still undrawn. The other terms and conditions of the Additional Facility are substantially the same as the Existing Facility.

Although no assurances can be given, the Group believes it has sufficient funds to finance these and other necessary investments and repay its borrowings consistent with the scheduled maturities, based on its existing cash position, liquidity from the Existing Facility and the benefit of certain conditional deferrals permitted under the Group’s existing debt agreements.


So this basically means that Walt Disney Studios Park will be getting a major new addition as a park of a larger financially-backed expansion for the park. Sounds exciting!
