|This pin was available only to Disneyland Resort cast members in May 2001. It's a replica of the safety signs that were/are used in the vehicles of the Adventure Through Inner Space and the Haunted Mansion. It's a long horizontal blue bar with silver lettering (scans as black) reading "For Your Safety, Please Remain Seated, Keep your head and arms inside the car at all times." In the upper right corner is a picture of Inner Space's Atomobile.|
It was reported on May 8, 2001 that this pin was pulled and is no longer being sold. There is a problem with the pin that cast members would not divulge over the phone. It is not known how many of the 3000 pins were actually sold before the pin was pulled. This pin is now considered rare.
It is estimated by Tomarts that only 400 of these pins were released prior to being pulled and destroyed due to a lawsuit.
Note: This pin is a replica of the blue safety decals found on the omni-movers of the Adventure Thru Inner Space attraction. This attraction was closed in 1986 to be replaced by Star Tours.
This pin was pulled from being sold because of a lawsuit involving a guest who was injured on the Haunted Mansion, which uses the same type of ride vehicle as the Adventure Thru Inner Space attraction. It was considered to be in poor taste to release this pin with that lawsuit pending.
