    Have you ever been stuck on a ride?

    Hey guys has anyone ever been stuck on a ride before? My last trip (june 2009) i got stuck on a number of rides for the first time.
    I actually got stuck on Test Tracks 3 times... first halfway through the part when you're driving up the mountain and you're doing the sharp turns... second right before your crash through the wall and go outside (that messed up the speed when we were suppose to go fast)... last we stopped right before you go back inside.

    Stuck on Mission Space once.. we were ready to start the mission, but something happened and we had to wait like 10 minutes...

    Spaceship Earth 2 times (i think the flashes from cameras did it)

    Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Shooting Game (too many times to count)

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad once... on top of the mountain before you go down...

    Pirates once (i didn't really get stuck, but there were a build up of boats at the end and i spent 5 minutes looking at Johnny Deep sitting on gold

    Rock n roller Coaster once... we were waiting to take off, but something happened and we had to wait 5 minutes...

    Expedtion Everest twice... stuck going up, stuck when you start going backwards

    I've been stuck on Pirates, Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise. I've been evacuated from 20,000 Leagues and Dinosaur.

    I got stuck in a giftshop at Downtown Disney.

    How did they evacuate you from 20,000 leagues beneath the sea's surface? Did they have pressure suits for everyone? How did you deal with that giant squid when you were no longer protected by the confines of the Nautilus?

    I got stuck in the graveyard scene of the Mansion once. Seemed like 10 minutes are so. It was great because I could take in some of the details I usually miss when I fly by stuff.

    Paul Frees did an emergency soundtrack for the ride . . . he comes on as the ghost host to tell you what's going on and what to do. I wish I remembered the script, it was clever.

    No idea what happened on Dinosaur. We broke down before the Carnotaurus on the left. The sound FX kept playing but the dino was rock-solid and so was the vehicle. We sat there in the darkness for a few minutes (felt like a lifetime; scary scary scary!) and then the worklights came on. We were there for maybe five or ten minutes and then the employees came along with a trolley-like ladder. Got to walk the rest of the track which was great fun.

    Same for 20K in the "dunno what happened" scheme of things, but as it was in the caverns I would guess the sub ahead in the pack had jumped the trough in the Abyss. Not a difficult thing to do. The helmsman popped the rear hatch and we walked a short section of the catwalks in the showbuilding and headed outside through the jungle. I loved (and still love) that ride, but I wouldn't want to spend any longer in that building than I did. Quite dark, very humid. Very much in the "backstage" tradition.

    Have a gold star for that post, sir!

    The crew got rid of the squid with the repellent charge before hand, naturally.

    Speaking of the Mansion, one thing I noticed on my last trip which I found a little odd was the repeated use of the P/A system to inform guests, typically by a very screechy CM. It breaks the theme and begs the question - why bother to continue using the original break-down spiels?

    That's a great point, like test tracks i could see all the details they have around the place.. and big thunder mountain was cool because the ride goes so fast and expedtion everest had a great view... but on mission space there was just cold air hitting my face... haha

    that does seem like something that would be really cool to have happen during the dinosaur ride... did they give you guys fast passes so you could go on again

    Yeah, but I just kept mine as a souvenir rather than use it. I was done for the day anyway. It was a specific "re-admission" ticket though, rather than a fastpass.
