    Re: Have you ever gotten stuck on an attraction? I haven't.

    I guess it depends how one defines stuck. Closest I have come to being stuck on any ride was about 5 minutes at DCA on the rapid ride, the lift at the start of the ride, about 1/2 way up that the ride stopped, but it was less then 5 minutes.

    On Splash once going up for the final drop, about 10-15 minutes.

    But never anything exciting or need to be evacuated off, the rides always started back up and off we went.

    I got stuck on Space Mountain, I can't really say WHERE I got stuck, but it guess you can say it was somewhat in the middle of the ride in the space room. We sat there for about 15 minutes or so until a cast member had to evacuate us. I actually have a video of it:

    I've never been evacuated or anything like that. Momentary stops, or the boats would get backed up in Pirates.

    I've been evacuated from Splash Mountain and Indy. The Indy incident included my handicapped mom (her first ride on Indy!!). We had to wait for them to bring a wheelchair down to us so we could wheel her out, and let me tell you, the hills in there are steep! haha.. Also, she was not happy about having to leave the vehicle by ladder, either. Those vehicles are REALLY high off the ground - especially if you are not very mobile. I was proud of her though, it didn't scare her away from the ride forever. She went on it again later and had a great time.

    First trip to Disneyland I got stuck on Indiana Jones for about 20 minutes in the room with the large snake. Rode through with lights on until just before the big boulder, got stuck again there, then lights went off and they tried to make us get off. We begged for another ride through and they made us undo our seatbelts, hold them out and then put them back on again. I am looking to see if I have any pictures of the snake area...

    Second trip to Disneyland I got stuck on Pirates of the Caribbean right at the end I think - just before the ramp up to the loading area.

    Third trip no breakdowns.

    Heading to DLR for fourth trip March 1 - fingers crossed that I do not get stuck on any attractions, but if I do, hopefully it will be neat...

    I got evacuated off Mr. Toads Wild Ride. It was really neat to see everything with the lights on. They walked us through it very carefully and slowly.

    Monsters Inc., in the CDA part just underneath the helicopter. Nice breeze. We were evacuated after a 5 minute wait
    Also, Pooh's ride, the very first time I rode it. We stopped just after the birthday room. Waited about 8 minutes before CMs came by and escorted us out.
    So, if all goes well, the next attraction you get on will break down and you will experience the evac firsthand.

    Friday, I got stalled on Indiana Jones about every 3 seconds. It was awful and jerky. I had no idea what was going on... does that count?

    Later that day on Alice In Wonderland I got stuck for about 10 minutes between the Cheshire Cat and the Tea Party scene.

    I've gotten stuck and escorted out of thunder mountain in the rain after sitting on it for 20 minutes.

    Ive gotten escorted out of Pinocchio between the doorway in front of Pinocchio going home. I got to see the Blue Fairy clearly. Also staring at the clocks in there are fun.
    MEOW.

    I broke down on Snow White's Scary Adventure's when you see the evil queen in the dungeon area with the raven, it was kind of creepy. We stalled their for like 15 minutes and the ride continued on. We didn't figure out what was wrong.

    We got stuck on Monorail Red (Mark V) on our honeymoon right over the sub lagoon, pre-Nemo. We sat there for about 30 minutes as they attempted to cycle the power but it kept tripping the system so they sent out the tug and pushed us into the station. Wasn't scary at all. Talked to the people around us. The pilot kept coming on every 2 or 3 minutes saying, "once again I'd like to welcome you all to monorail red..." it was fun.

    Last Oct we got stuck on Space Mountain about 1/2 a second after they took our photo. Sat there for may 10 minutes before they came by and popped the lap bars and had us jump down to the walkway and walked into the station.

    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

    Re: Have you ever gotten stuck on an attraction? I haven't.

    The only ride I've been evaced from was Space Mountain, except it was just our vechicle. You know how there are 2 tracks at the end of the station before the launch? Instead of going to the right and into the ride, our car went to the left track. They unloaded us and we briefly walked backstage by the server racks and immediately into a new car. The CM told us that the ride was about to break down but we believe that the sensors stopped transmitting data and so they took that car off of the track.
    Yesterday we were next in line at Big Thunder when they cleared us out because a train stalled on the 2nd lift hill. And to think that if we had gotten there 5 minutes earlier, that would have been us!

    Space Mountain - cast members came and explained the procedures, that each car is brought back to the station one at a time. So it takes awhile to evac.

    Rocket Rods - I never actually made it to the attraction. I waited in line for over an hour and just as I was next in line to board, it went 101. There were rockets stuck way out on the curves that cast members had to walk to. My evac was simple. The people actually on the ride, not so much. I didn't get back to the park before Rocket Rods was shut down, so I never got to actually ride it.

    Re: Have you ever gotten stuck on an attraction? I haven't.

    I've been stuck on Superstar Limo, Pooh, PotC and Big Thunder at WDW. On Limo and Pooh, the CMs came, untightened the lapbars, and escorted us out through the ride. On PotC, I only got stuck on it for about 30 min but I didn't have to evac.

    On Big Thunder, we got up part of the biggest lift hill, and then the train stopped for literally one second, then kept going. Then we got to the very top of the lift hill, then it stopped again. It was about 10-15 minutes before we got evac'd, but we knew they were going to come quickly because we could see a huge thunder storm on the horizon (get it? Horizons? xD). They took us down the long flight of stairs to the bottom, and then we went backstage, where there was a large collection of hats that probably fell off the rider's heads. Then we walked through another door that took us to the first scene with the bats in darkness before the caverns room, but it had the lights on. Then we walked to the station and they gave us a free FastPass to come back later.

    Re: Have you ever gotten stuck on an attraction? I haven't.

    Just last weekend I was at Disneyland for one day and my first ride in DCA was screemin'... which I promptly got stuck for about 15min. This was my first time every getting stuck and it wasn't all that big of a deal but the ride was down the rest of the day, so no screemin' for me this trip.

    There are three rides that I would like to get stuck on:
    1. Indy
    2. Space
    3. Haunted
