History[edit | edit source]
Orient Express began operation on April 4, 1980.
On July 17, 1999, metal fatigue originating in the support structure caused two cars to derail, leaving riders stranded 30 feet above the ground. Nobody was seriously injured. It was closed and removed after the 2003 season due to excessive maintenance costs and plans for future development.
