The Disneyland accidents involving “the Sailing Ship Columbia” and “Big Thunder Mountain” were essentially defective product claims. The theory that rides at a theme park be in good working order and that the owner has a duty to keep their rides in good working order, can be traced back to the core of products liability. In the Columbia accident a metal cleat was riped from the ship and hurrdled into a crowd due to rotted wood and a nylon rope. While on Big Thunder Mountain the failure to install a safety wire created a chain of events resulting in the train to fall apart and crash.
