Loud noises caused by an elevator malfunction at Disneyland Paris on Saturday led to a brief moment of panic, and rumors of an attack, but there were no injuries, authorities said.
A police spokesman said people at the park mistook the sounds for gunfire. France’s Interior Ministry said there was a stampede, but that it was a false alarm and that the security forces confirmed there was no threat to the public.
Officials at Disneyland Paris did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
