Well, we finally went to the park last night to ride pirates. We took our first ride and absolutely loved it!! Later in the evening we got in line again just before the 9pm fantasmic started. We got on the ride at about 9:10 and were having a blast when we got to the scene where they dunk Carlos. We were stuck there for about 30 minutes...they finally turned the audio off after about 25 minutes. Needless to say, that has to be one of the most annoying places to be stuck - "Carlos, don't be chiiicken"! They finally turned lights on and said we would be evacuated, and our boat began to move. All the boats behind us stayed where they were and we moved into the corridor right before the jail scene. Well all the boats that had been behind us floated up a few minutes later, completely empty. Then, all the boats in front of us were evacuated, but we were in a spot where they couldn't get us out, so there we sat!! I was struck by how ridiculous people get when stuck like that. My daughter and I were alone in the back row, and there was a family in the first two rows freaking out and screaming at the very kind cms who were trying to get us out, the woman even threatened to find her own way out if they didn't hurry!! The cm very politely told her that they were trying to start the ride up to move our boat forward, and there were mechanisms that could take her foot off, so that would be a very bad idea. At one point the teenage kids of this family just started to climb out and there was no where to go and they had to get back in. Then, the people directly in front of us decided to try to propel the boat forward by grabbing the shore and pushing, which only succeeded in moving the boat backwards!! I really kept thinking, do you think you're gonna push us and the 20 or so boats in front of us up the lift hill doing that??? Finally, some very nice cms helped us climb into the boat in front of us and then out of the ride. We got a pass to go to the front of any ride we chose, and the cm's were very kind and helpful, I felt sorry for them due to all the unneccessary abuse they got! We loved pirates though...we were stuck in front of the first Jack for quite a while and he is so life like, its just bizarre!!!
No announcement yet.
