  • Multiple Dark Ride Break Downs!

    Last weekend some friends and I decided to go see all the Halloweentime happenings at DLR. It had been such a long time since I went on all the Fantasyland dark rides so we decided to go on those first thing. First was Snow White. The ride started off ok, but as it went on the car started slowing down and jerking. Right was we went past the witch's dungeon, the ride stopped. The lights came on and a kind CM came and escorted us out. She said a child had actually RAN into the atraction through the exit. This was all very strange to me since I have never evacuated a ride before... it was kinda cool! Then we went on Pinocchio. Same thing happened. The reason for the ride shutting down was unknown this time. Next we headed over to Mr. Toad's and what do you know? It happened yet AGAIN!!! By now I was getting curious. What made all this happen? We decided to be brave and do one more, Alice in Wonderland, and thankfully we made it through!! I have pictures, but I don't know what the rules are on here about "backstage" pics.

      Yeah, that's basically the one commandment.

      1. Thou shalt bringeth thy back stage photographs hence forth.
      "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
      "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
      "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.

        Then again, Alice in Wonderland isn't exactly as dark as Snow White's Scary Adventure and Mr. Toad's journey to the fires of hell...

          Rules? We don't need no stinking rules!!!!

          Hold on it's badges that we don't need, damn so that means the rules still hold. But as for rules against backstage pics, none that I know of. Unless of course you are a CM and the picture violate your NDA or something to that effect. So with that said, bring on the pics.
          Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

                                  Ha, your friends are awsome. She looks a lot like the one pulling dopey (I knew the name, I just don't want to go back to check. ) I'm lazy.)

                                  That's so cool! The only ride I ever got evacuated from was Splash Mountain, and I was terrified. :lol:

                                  Your pictures are neat. Did you get to walk through the tree-area?

                                    In Snow White? Yes ma'am. It was so cool yet so weird at the same time. If I was a little kid, it would have totally ruined the magic for me

                                      That would have scared me silly.
                                      I was terrified of the trees as a kid. :lol:

                                      That's so nifty! I wish I was there!

                                        Haha it actually did get scary at one point. When we were still inside the car, the CM came around the corner looking petrified. I asked her what was wrong and she said that the skeleton and the witch moved by themselves... spooky!!
