  • Have anyone ever broken down on ride and got taken off

    I have never been taken off an attraction. I have always wanted to.

    Splash Mountain and Rocket Rods for me...

      I broke down on the Haunted Mansion once, when I was little. Screamed bloody murder, I did!

        I was on the People Mover at WDW that goes through Space Mountain. The People Mover didn't break down, but Space Mountain was down for maintenance, and all the work lights were on. Preety cool to see the track in bright lights.

          I have yet to be on a ride that has gone 101. Nor have I been walked off a ride. I have always been in line when this type of thing happens.
          Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
          I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



          May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

          NO GOATS!

            I was in Rocket Rods queue twice when it broke down. That ride had a great queue.

              I've been taken off of Splash Mountain, Matterhorn, and Pirates. Pirates was fun to walk out off, they took us off the boat in the cave part where the voice says dead men tell no tails.

                  I've been stuck on Haunted Mansion for about twenty minutes.

                  I was stuck on Pirates for about an hour an a half until they walked us out. I was in one of the last boats to be unloaded. Stuck right under the pirate that used to have the dirty hairy leg.

                    We got to walk off both Indiana Jones and Splash Mountain on our trip in December. It was my six year old's first ride on Indy, so she was bummed. We were given a pass for 5 to any other ride in the park, and we used it twice because the CMs on Pirates didn't take it from us.

                    Splash Mountain, though, I've walked off that before with my 9 year old. I have pics from both walk-offs. And both breakdowns happened immediately after going down the big hill. And both times, we were given nothing for our "troubles." But of course, to us, it was no trouble...being dorks and all.

                    I remember being really little on Space Mountain and seeing the inside with the lights on. I was probably 7 or 8.

                      Yeah, and you got to spend a looooong time there to take it all in.

                      I've been in a boat jam at Pirates but that's it. There wasn't any walk-off, just a ton of waiting.

                        Indiana Jones Adventure ... we had just buckled in and moved forward to where the two loading tracks meet. Sat there about 5-10 mins when they had us get off and exit.

                          I've been walked off CarToonSpin. And, the nice CM even let my dad and I take pictures during the walk-off too. I have this great one of my dad standing with his arm around Roger near the portable hole.

                            Forgive me for just reposting what I put in a similar thread in the DisneyWorld forum (which took the turn towards Disneyland breakdowns). I'm too lazy to re-write it, and these remain my personal favorite breakdown stories:

                            I think my favorite has got to be when we got stuck on the Matterhorn. The bobsleds were frozen in place so long that, eventually, CMs showed up to evacuate us. As soon as we were free from our bobsleds, we raced for that ledge on the outside of the mountain that has the fantastic, jaw-dropping view of Fantasyland and It's a Small World far below. The whole time the CM is screaming that we can't do that .... but apparently he was wrong.

                            We got walked down through the insides of the Matterhorn and even got to see the half-court basketball court. So much scaffolding and tiny stairways, and itsy-bitsy crawl spaces. It was fantastic!

                            * * * *

                            Another Matterhorn story: About two weeks before the Disneyland Skyway closed forever, we got stuck on it right outside the Matterhorn cavern opening that the gondola buckets went through. And I mean right outside: I was able to reach out and push off the side of the Matterhorn, sending out bucket swinging wildly - - to the delight of both ourselves in the bucket, and the guests in bobsleds streaming by at close range. We got to play like this for almost half an hour. It was a great farewell-to-the-Skyway experience.


                            * * * *

                            Another attraction farewell story: About three weeks before the Peoplemover closed forever, we finally got our dream come true of being stuck and walked off that ride. Unfortunately, we were almost back to the loading station when the ride went 101 - - and we had to wait for almost 45 minutes while we seethed with jealousy waiting for the lucky guests who got to walk long stretches of the perilous Peoplemover path to finally get to our point in the ride. Then we got to walk the portion between the Hub and the Rocket Jets. Not a bad deal, I guess, and certainly a fond farewell to the Peoplemover.


                            * * * *

                            One more that tickles my funnybone: When my daughter was finally old enough to ride the Fantasyland dark rides by herself, she insisted on getting her own mine car on Snow White's Scary Adventures. Sure enough, the ride breaks down in the Haunted Forest, and our kid was scarred out of her wits. Hahaha! (yeah, I'm a cruel dad) We had to squeeze past our frozen safety bars, climb out of our mine car back a ways and go "rescue" her. Loads of fun. I love 101.

                              Been walked off from Pooh - (yawn)
                              Stuck on POTC for bout 45 minutes. Ended up having to walk the plank to a ladder set up in the queue.
                              HM went down while I was in the Portrait Hall, got to go out the exit door on the left side.
                              When they closed down the HP backlot for a fire last May, they took us out backstage between Muppets and Millionaire. Not a big thrill unless you enjoy looking at cast members taking a break.

                                  When we got walked off Indy, we had just passed the boulder. The jeep behind us had some nervous kids in it, as they were left stranded under the boulder and a hanging Indiana. We were just sitting there in the dark, waiting to go around the last corner.

                                  I still wish it hadn't happened on Cassidy's first ride. But she rode Indy enough in the next few days (and always in the front!) to make up for it.

                                  She was also the one disillusioned by our Splash walk-down. She was upset to learn that the walls were not really made of rock, but that there were actually SOFT. I hated seeing the magic die a little in her eyes. She's talked about it a few times since then, so I imagine the memory is going to stay with her.

                                      I rode the Rocket Rods a total of 6 times in its existence and I had to walk off of it 5 of those. It was kind of fun to walk the track back to the station and I never had to wait in line after the first time because they kept giving me passes to come back later. Unfortunately, I only got to experience the full ride once.

                                        I got stuck on Pirates too. Right before the assend up the waterfall at the end. Some guy had to walk down the ramp to push our boat towards the exit sign so we could walk off. He slipped and fell down the ramp into the water and I laughed at him. We received "fastpasses" for Splash Mt. for our troubles.

                                        I also got stuck on Space Mountain and we had to be led off. The computers shut the ride down because we were behind an empty rocket and eventually we would've caught up with it. Some lady leaned on one of the greased tracks and ruined her dress. I laughed at her.
