If you think about the fact that Beastlie Kingdomme was concepted back in 1992 before B&M ever came out with their inverted design, plus the fact that the train design was 'half-melted cauldrons being held by a bat above' you can pretty much assume it was just a simple suspended coaster, much like Big Bad Wolf. At least that's what I think of when I think of a cauldron/bucket, the standard suspended trains. More than likely Vekoma would have made it, otherwise look to Arrow.

From what I've heard, B&M isn't too willing to budge on their say of the ride they design and build, whereas Disney likes to have total control and claim everything as their own, whether they made it or not. Think about it, do you see little Zamperla plaques on Aladdin's Magic Carpets, or Vekoma signs of quality on Rock 'n' Rollercoaster??
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

Ride Op Injured at Animal Kingdom

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Walt Disney World worker was seriously injured after she apparently fell off of a platform at the Animal Kingdom theme park.

Disney officials said the woman, who was seriously injured five days ago on the Primeval Whirl children's ride, took a turn for the worst Wednesday night.

The ride attendant was standing in a place that was typically off limits to employees and was hit by a moving ride car, a Disney representative said.



The victim hit her head during the fall, according to the report.

Since the woman was breathing and conscious, Disney did not call the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. However, on Wednesday, OSHA was notified of the incident, Local 6 reported.

Disney officials said there does not appear to be a problem with the attraction.

OSHA and the Orange County Sheriff's Office are investigating the accident.

"The ride attendant was standing in a place that was typically off limits to employees and was hit by a moving ride car"

Do people ever learn? Danger Zone means DANGER zone. It would be nice if the article mentioned why the employee was there when the ride was running, but still wouldn't justify it. Seems a lot of people dont realize how the cars are wider than the track on the Reverchon / Zamperla Mice.
