    Re: Pirates Boat Sinks w/ Guest Onboard !!!!

    Before I believe it outright, is that even possible? I seem to remember that before the Small World refurb they had a problem with boats hitting the bottom of the water and getting stuck. I never heard of a Small World boat "sinking", though. If they bottomed out there, but never sank, I'd think that Pirates would have a similar depth.

    If it did happen, and nobody was hurt, then pictures would be cool.

    *Mod Note* Changed tag to "rumor" until we get substantiated confirmation that this actually happened.

    And I could be wrong, but I don't think there is any part of the flume that is that deep water wise.

    Maybe they were on Nemo instead of Pirates. That submerging effect is pretty realistic.

    I agree. The water is pretty shallow in that ride and...the edges are very close so that one could just step off the boat.

    When I was working on Casey Jr. in the late 60's, one of the Storybook canal boats sunk, and everyone got wet. Someone had forgotten to close the gate that allows them to take the boasts off-line, leaving a gap in the track. A boat ran right off the end of the track and punched a hole in the hull. I knew the girl who was the operator of the boat. She was devastated.

    I don't think the water is that deep, but you never know.

    Here's another rumor: the guests were rocking the boat. Can't substantiate this, because I don't care to.

    Those boats sometimes have a bad habit of taking on water throughout the day, especially in the last two rows. Perhaps too much water got in the boat + it was poorly balanced? And while I also don't think that it's possible to fully sink them it is definitely possible for them to bottom out on one end or the other.

    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Looks like it was deeper than waist deep. I think they went all the way to Davy Jone's Locker.
