ANAHEIM, Calif. — Animatronics can be creepy and it doesn’t help when one loses its head.

That was the case when the Ursula animatronic on the Little Mermaid ride at Disney’s California Adventure partially lost its head on Sunday.

One person posted a horrifying video of the mishap on Twitter.

“This happened today which caught me off guard because Disney is usually so critical over things like this,” she wrote.

The parkgoer, who didn’t want to be named, told The Huffington Post that some children cried when they saw the animatronic.

“Immediately after we got off we were ushered out along with everyone else, and the employees looked very concerned,” she said.

“Many people had seen Ursula decapitated, including kids who understandably were upset. It was a pretty freaky thing to see.”

It is not yet known whether the ride has been repaired.
