Disneyland Dry-Ice Blast Allegedly The Work Of Park Employee Christian Barnes
Christian Barnes, an employee at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., was arrested for allegedly setting off a dry-ice explosive device in the park on Wednesday, reported the Los Angeles Times
The explosion, which occurred at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, forced Disneyland officials to partially evacuate the park for two hours, Disney announced on their official Twitter page. It had gone off near the theme park’s Mickey’s Toontown amusement area. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, nor was there any property damage.
After the park was secured around 7:30 p.m., officials allowed Disneyland to resume normal fuction. "Review is complete. Mickey's Toontown has been deemed 'all clear' by local authorities. Guests are welcomed to return," park officials said.
Barnes has been cooperating in the investigation and is unlikely connected to the other recent dry-ice explosions that have frightened the Anaheim area of Southern California, according to the L.A.Times.
Anaheim Sgt. Bob Dunn, while not explicitly stating whether he thought the dry-ice bomb to be a prank gone wrong or something more sinister, did not seem to believe Barnes was aware of his act's potential consequences.
