    Re: Abandon ship!!

    I know in 2003 the ride was down for for quite some time and most of the group I was with (i.e. my 8th grade class) was stuck on the ride for most of the visit

    Does anyone think maybe it has anything to do with the HUGE capacity crowds they've been shoving through since it re-opened? Maybe the old ride is not used to all those full boats!

    when I got stuck on it about a year ago we were in it for over 45 minutes. the last 10 minutes they turnes off that song...thank god...people actually cheered when the music turned off...LOL

    I heard women and children were evacuated on smaller boats that they didn't bother filling to capacity, whilst the men were stuck to fend for themselves...oh, wait...we're talking about Pirates.....sorry...

    I don't think we can really blame the rehab and lack of soft opening on the ride breaking down, especially if it was only the ramp...they shoulda changed it to magnets...like Screamin'.

    Wow. We had boats backed up all the way to the beginning of the burning town on our first trip tonight, and then were stuck AT the first drop for what felt like forever on our second trip. It does seem like they are having serious problems, and they can't blame it on new Johnny Depp animatronics. I can't remember hearing Pirates have such problems in the past!

    Are they still running all the boats available to accomodate the crowds?
