* Park operator Euro Disney unavailable for comment
PARIS, April 25 The Disneyland Paris theme park
closed its "Thunder Mountain" train ride on Monday after a piece
of scenery fell onto one of the carriages and injured five
people, one seriously, a state official told Reuters.
"A piece of scenery made from fibreglass and wood broke off
and fell onto one of the carriages. There were 25 people on
board," said Thierry Bonnet, deputy prefect for the
Seine-et-Marne region where the park is located.
The ride was closed but the rest of the park stayed open
after the accident, he added.
A spokesman for the park's operator, Euro Disney (EDLP.PA),
did not return calls seeking comment. Disneyland Paris was
France's top attraction in 2009, bringing in 15.4 million
visitors, according to the national statistics bureau INSEE.
