Could Milo Ventimiglia be partly to blame for the closure of Disneyland‘s Skyway?
The popular tourist attraction closed down completely in 1994 after 38 years of operation, due to metal tiredness. As the star of This Is United States exposed on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, his shenanigans might have played a bit part in its death. Throughout his developmental years in Orange County, Calif., the 40- year-old informed Jimmy Kimmel, “I grew up going to Disneyland all the time.”
The amusement park in Anaheim, Calif., benefited 2 things, Ventimiglia discussed: “It was one of those places that you’d go to and you’d fall in love, but you’d also go and get in real trouble.”
” When I was 12, I was there for my birthday, and I was enabled to take 2 good friends; I believe it was Aaron Steger and Jeremy Rex,” he stated. “One of them had a good idea while we were on the Skytram, which is this cable that runs over Tomorrowland and connects a bunch of those.”
“Oh, yeah!” Kimmel stated. “It’s not there anymore, right?”
“It’s not there anymore—probably for this very reason!” Ventimiglia stated with a laugh. “We were on the car ahead of my mom and dad and my sisters, and as we were going, one of my friends—I don’t know who it was—had the great idea to play a game called ‘Spit on Someone and Try to Hit Someone.’ So, we’re spitting over the edge, like, ‘Oh, wow! I hit a bald dude!’ Twenty feet before you finish, you’re all like, ‘Oh, they’re watching now. Just be cool. Be cool.'”
The flight operator asked Ventimiglia and his good friends to step aside while he spoke with his moms and dads. After having a word “out of earshot,” his daddy strolled over to Ventimiglia and his birthday was over, he stated. “It was done. It was done. We went home. That was it! No spitting at Disneyland.”
What did the star gain from the experience? “Um…” he stated. “There’s cameras everywhere.”
