Last night after the first show of WOC, we headed over to Tower of Terror to use our 9:15-10:00 PM fastpass. As expected, we were greeted by the Fastpass line being brought around the path to the right and then a little in front of the entrance. More and more people kept showing up. Standby was 100 mins. At about 9:30, they locked the standby entrance. When we were a few parties away from the fast pass gate entrance, they shut that down too around 9:40 PM. This is where it started getting crazy. The ride had broken down. They started reimbursing people with fastpasss with the "any ride-up to 6 people" fastpass. We were fine with this, as we wanted to ride Indy anyway.
But what started to happen was when the ride broke down, they told everyone that that was it and the ride was closed for the night. So what you had was 100 minutes of stand-by+all fastpass people leaving through the front gates while you had all the angry people who showed up after they closed the gates. The scene was chaotic. Kinda got a picture, though it's fuzzy.
