    Re: Have you ever been stuck on a ride??

    (Month?) 2001 - Stuck on Hollywood Limo ride in DCA thanks to something catching fire inside the ride.

    July 2003 - Stuck on Splash Mountain, right at the base of the final incline. I had to listen to the cackling vultures for about 45 minutes before we were allowed to continue, talk about building suspense. It was miserable because of the 5 people on this log, I was one of only two who were sober. ( Sadly, 3 of my friends smuggled in a 2-liter bottle of some pre-mix that I didn't know about until we were in the park. They were smashed. I had to choose between loyalty to my friends and my strong inclination to have security kick them out of the park for the betterment of everyone else's day. )

    December 200? - Stuck on PotC right before the first drop, by the talking skull. Actress Dianne Keaton was in our boat so we got a bit of time to talk, maybe 30 minutes or so.

      Stuck on Monorail over sub lagoon while the power on the beam kept coming on and off. Every 5 minutes for half an hour the pilot would say "Once again everyone, I'd like to welcome you to monorail red..." It became a joke with everyone onboard. Eventually they just towed us into Tomorrowland station.

      Stuck on Screamin' about 8 feet out of the station. We were past the load platform in the front 3 rows so they evacuated everyone else off the ride except the 6 of us. They had some trouble manually releasing the brakes but eventually got it and pushed the train back up into the station and let us out.

      Stuck on Space Mountain right underneath the ride photo camera. Last to be evaced here as well. They just popped the safety bars and had us hop down 4 feet to the walkway.

      Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

          A few years ago we were stuck on Indiana Jones, about ten feet before the unloading area, a half hour before the park closed, on the last night of our trip. It was frustrating since we could have easily walked off the ride without incident, (the people in front of us did just that and they were disciplined by the ride operators and possibly thrown out of the park.) But it's important to follow the safety procedures.

          Last year we were also evacuated from TSMM which was kind of cool. Of course my dream is to see Space Mountain with the lights on someday.

            I got stuck on Peter Pan's Flight a few seconds after leaving the initial "nursery" scene. Hovered over "London" for about half an hour and got to see what everything looks like with the work lights on -- which is kinda ugly! Noticed some big plastic bags (like the kind your dry cleaning comes back in) just laying on the floor, which in the dark provide the banks of "fog". Funny to see the maintenance guys come in, marching over London like Godzilla! I enjoyed "hanging out" and took some pictures (sorry, they're slides and are buried in a box somewhere...). Unfortunately, this incident caused some strife for my Dad, because my extra adventure caused me to be late meeting him to leave for the airport (this was my very last ride of the day that I had thought I could squeeze in). This was back in 1985, so cell phones were still something only James Bond and George Jetson might have had. ) However, despite my Dad's worry about his MIA son and anxiety that we'd miss our flight, we still made it. In my haste leaving the Park, though, I forgot to stop by the storage lockers and pick up a few items. Realizing this at the airport, I called Disneyland (from a pay phone!) to rectify the situation. Once home, I mailed them the little key, and a few days later, a big padded envelope came in the mail, containing all of my forgotten items! Huge points (of course) for Disneyland!

              We were stuck on the Matterhorn and were evacuated, got to go through the mountain. Tried to take a few pics, but the CM yelled at us.

                Stuck in the Haunted Mansion right in front of the Ghost Quartet for about fifteen minutes. I can still hear that song in my sleep. My video batteries were dead or I would have recorded the entire thing.

                      Let me see...I've been stuck on Pirates of the Caribbean in the area where the jail scene is for a good 20 minutes. I've been stuck on the Haunted Mansion many times. On that ride I've been stuck in the hallway and the attic scene, and the part where you're going down backwards when you exit the attic. I couldn't tell you how that hurt my back. I've also been stuck in the graveyard where one of those popping ghosts are. For Indy I've been stuck on that many many times as well. On that ride I've been stuck on the part right after you look into the eyes of Mara. I've been stuck on the bridge, and I've been stuck in the area with the rats.

                        I've been on many rides that have stopped for 5-ish minutes, probably for handicap loading.
                        In Little Mermaid, we got to sing Part of Your World about 3 or 4 times in a row at the top of our lungs before we started moving again. I'm sure our neighbors loved us. In Buzz Lightyear I was able to get a 1,000,000+ score while stuck in front of Zurg for a few minutes, as well. Lol. That was awesome, except the pictures got messed up and my friends in the next car got my score!

                        However, there was one time we got stuck in Haunted Mansion on the part where you go down backward into the cemetery. We had to wait until a CM popped the safety bar before we could get up (not easy!) and walk out - with all the lights on. It was kinda neat.

                          This is one of my dreams. I always wish I could stop in front of the quartet for a while to listen and look around. Prolly my favorite part of the doom buggy section of the ride.

                          I've been stuck there for a while when a fairly large amount of boats got backed up just prior to the final lift. It was fun to watch the pirates shooting at each other and really get a chance to see some of the details you normally wouldn't see.

                              I just recently got stuck on RSR. Yes very common but I got stuck on it twice in the same ride. When the ride is down the animatronics look a little creepy as their eyes just stay put.

                                During One More Disney Day I ended up stuck on POTC. I spent over 30 minutes listening to Bill offer some rum to the kitties.

                                One night I got stuck on Alice in the last room, right in front of the Cheshire Cat. A CM came and released the lap bar, and I walked the rest of the ride to the exit.

                                  The only time I've ever been stuck on a ride to the point where we had to be evacuated was 2 weeks ago, September 21, the day of the Shuttle flyover. After roasting in the sun waiting for the Shuttle to show up, we decided to cool off by riding Grizzly River Run. By the time we got halfway up the lift hill, the ride shut down, so instead of getting wet, we got to sit and roast some more. A CM came by and told us that if they didn't get the ride started again in 20 minutes, they'd escort us off, but fortunately they didn't make us wait quite that long. I felt sorry for the CM who came huffing and puffing up the ramp, carrying the heavy plank thing so we could step off the raft safely.

                                    On Bats Day this year, there was some huge issue on Splash Mountain. We weren't evaced, but the ride stopped and started; stopped and started, over and over again. For some reason they'd kept sending out logs, so at one point there were seven or eight logs all backed up before the first drop. We were all waving and yelling to each other, and since we were there forever, I momentarily took my camera out of its protective triple plastic wraps and took a photo.

                                    On the same day I spent about a half hour inside Buzz Lightyear, which was fun because I got this score.

                                    Other than that I've just been stuck momentarily in the Mansion, etc...nothing that has required an evacuation from the ride.

                                      I've never been stuck on a ride! I've had the ride break right after we were done. A few trips back, my boyfriend and I were on Space Mountatin and we pulled up to the loading dock and then the ride broke. Talk about timing!

                                      But other than that close encounter, I've never been stuck on a ride.

                                        I've been stuck in Pirates for about half an hour, about 50 feet from the up-waterfall at the end. Had water dripping on us from the lagoon over our heads.

                                        Stuck on Big Thunder and got to walk off. It was in the earthquake tunnel and we got to walk through the bat cave. No pics.
