SPOOKY and I bet when I go back this oct it will stop there again too
    In all I would say every other time (have ridden about 30 times) we are on SE it stops for one reason or another. We were stuck on SE going down for about 15 minutes two years ago. We would move down a few feet and come to a stop. It did this 5 times. To say the least we were glad when we got back to exit.

    We were stuck near the top last year for about half an hour. CMs were coming and going out of what appeared to be a mechanical room. That's when I realized there must be an elevator in SE. The message kept saying we would be starting momentarily. I guess 30 minutes is momentarily. Finally, a CM carrying a big wrench went to the front car and did something and the ride started shortly afterward.

    You know that big sliver thing just before the queue line for SSE? That's the elevator shaft! There is a trap door on top of SSE, and yes, Mickey was up there!

    Then, as I was entering the graveyard scene, we stop again. I had to listen to that one ghost pop up & scream for almost 10 minutes!
    OMG the same thing happened to me too... same scene even! ... but I was with two of my friends on the ride and we just kept laughing and laughing like it was the funniest thing in the world.


    I only remember being stuck on SE two times... he first time was towards the end when that song "Tomorrow's Child" was playing... I love that song. I need to find it. THe last one I remember the smell of fire....

    I am the king of getting stuck on Splash Mountain. Once I got stuck a little bit before the dark Laughin' Place hill, right underneath those like hanging possum things, (whatever animals they are)... and after like 5 minutes... their voices start to get REAAALLLY annoying lol. Then another time... I got stuck RIGHT in front of the main lift hill... before the big drop... RIGHT under the two vultures... who ALSO would not stop talking... and their voices started to get really annoying as well. It was funny because a cast member was walking around by that area and I was panicking but he was nice and stuff. I was scared cuz previously I saw SM break down and the water coming down the hill stopped flowing and they were letting boats down anyway and it just looked freaky. So I asked the man if they were going to stop the water again and he said you dont even need the water to go down the hill... its just for the effect. But i still wanted to cry anyways. lol. The wait felt like 2390489230 minutes but it was only 12 according to the cast members at the end of the ride!

    Man I've had all these stuckages!

    Under the vultures on SM.. OK OK I GET! YOU'VE GOT MY LAUGHIN PLACE!

    Coming down SE and getting stopped, not stuck, is inevidible though I was suprised one time to get stopped/stuck during the fall of Rome, which is pretty early in the ride.

    On the TTA/people mover but it was probably stopped because of my cigarette.. J/K! You knew when some kid was lighting up on the ride cause they'd stop it and inform riders there's no smoking about eight times.

    And in HM in front of that same pop-up zombie as that other guy! I became insane after awhile and started shouting in a crazed laugh, "Help! We're stuck! WEEEEEEE! OH NO MY LEG!!! Oh wait a minute nevermind... WOOT WOOT WOOT WOOT!"

    I also get stuck on SE everytime I go on it.

    Last time I was in WDW, me and my sister got stuck on HM about 3 times on the same ride and I kept yelling how it was awesome and how I love getting stuck on rides (this was one in the morning, I was overtired)

    I've been stuck on many a rides but I can't remember all of them (after 10 times at WDW, things start to blend together)

    I've been stuck on almost every ride at some time or another. The worst one ever was Peter Pan. That's right, Peter Pan for about half an hour. My little sister was 10 or 11 and now has to be threatened or bribed to ride this little kiddy ride because she is so scared of being stuck.(She was stuck on the part just before you get to Neverland when your pirate ship is pointed straight down.) No fun.

    One time when ride breakdown WAS fun was when Space Mountain was broken down and I was riding the WED Way People Mover (Ok, TTA). So, they had all the lights on, and I got lots of good pictures of the track. It was awesome! One of the only times I was glad a ride had broken down.

    OK, as soon as I find them. That's the problem, ever since I got them developed they've "disappeared"! Disney people have confiscated them perhaps???

    Impressive!!! Oh yeah, and another ride that just LOVES to breakdown, how could I forget Test Track? It took me three trips to find it up and running the first time soon after it opened.

    I actually count on TT breaking down, and use it to my advantage. I go grab a fast pass early in the day, knowing it will break down sometime in the first couple hours of the day, meaning that my FP will be good for any time of day I chose to use it. I've done this three times, and twice it has worked out as I suspected. Only once did it not break down before I came back, but no biggy... my FP was still good for that time frame anyway!
