@marni1971, any thoughts on this? I would think it'd throw an error and not allow the ride to proceed but it obviously isn't hurting anything in this condition. Also, it's neat to "see" the simulator in motion from the inside.
I assume it is simply a malfunction.
On my first two rides in WDW, I did not notice the inner door not closing, but then again, I do not recall looking back.
However, on the third ride, I did turn around and saw the back was open.
