Astro Orbiter Closed After Small Fire Over Weekend

The Astro Orbiter, a ride at the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland, was closed on Sunday due to a small fire. One of the ride's lights shorted out and melted sometime that morning, causing officials to shut down the ride for the rest of the day.

Bo Jones, an assistant chief with Reedy Creek Emergency Services, called the incident "very minor" and stated "we had it out in no time."

The decorative ring at the top center of the ride was the location of the malfunction and the affected light.

The incident occurred just after the park's opening and no guest injuries were reported. Though the Astro Orbiter was closed for the remainder of Sunday, other areas in Tomorrowland were open for guests.
