    We were just talking about this today while waiting for the ride...lol. I bet they were getting so anxious being stuck right at the exit, but having to stay put in their boat. Didn't they have to wait there for over an hour and a half. Man those poor CMs who had to try and control the situation.

    Yes, the ride got seriously stuck for over 90 minutes (one report said) last night. There were children that had to go to the bathroom, babies crying, and adults seriously abusing poor Castmembers. It must have been most frustrating for those people in boats right near the exit, who apparently just "jumped ship" out of frustration.

    I didn't know someone brought them a ramp....that makes it much easier to escape! I'd heard they just jumped ship!

    Wow, interesting. wolfy999, I guess your talking about the ramp thing in Frogberto's picture. Good eye, I missed it until your post. What a nightmare for CM when this happens and for guests knowing that they should be only a minute or two from the exit.

    Is it me, or do I keep seeing posts as to POTC (after refurb) keeps breaking down? Is this just because of the standard testing procedure during the soft opening (it is technically a soft opening right?) or is there something else wrong?

    Thanks all, and Frogberto, good job again!

    Yah that ramp probably made escaping all that more enticing...

    I believe in this case, the ramp is called "the plank"

    Heard from Dusty that the ride was constantly breaking down, thanks to Monorail Blue, the luck was with us, not a problem!

    Ah, something like A=MC's^2 where A=Anticipation?

    Wow, thats crazy. Can you imagine if someone jumping ship got hurt? I'd love to see the creative lawsuit that would arise from that.
