    Stuck on Pirates for 45 minutes today!

    So after lunch at Cafe Orleans today, we decided to go on Pirates. Right after the jail scene, the ride stopped and our boat stopped right next to one of the exit doors.

    About 30 minutes later they reset the lift and both drops twice. After the second reset everything started up again and we got out.

    I was really really disappointed and was hoping the lift wouldn't turn back on so we'd get a ride evac!

    We got on the boat at 1:15 and didn't get off until 2:00.

    Haha!!!

    I know what you mean. Evac's can add to the DL experience in their own special way.

    I've had a few, but not on POTC.

    Just remember, take lots of pics!

    At least you got some good pics! Thanks for sharing. I knew that they'd wreck the ride during the rehab, though...Not the Sparrow stuff...but the exit sign just spoils the whole thing wonder if its AA or CG...

    (Just kidding, people)!!

    You did get some great pictures! And I had the same thought as RadioBarry... THOSE are the exit signs that everyone was saying "spoil the mood"?

    If I was going to get stuck somewhere on a boat, I'd prefer it to be in there.

    Ah, the sweet smell of chlorine

    Maybe they are trying to extend the ride so that it is as long as one of the movies?*

    Tee hee Dont ya love it when Micechatters sink Pirates

    I wasn't in the boat that broke it. Myself, G4, Tinkerbelle, Trekkiedad and Jimmie and Scarlion were in the boat that actually MADE it over the first hill. We were stuck between scenes, between the Captains Quarters and the treasure trove. And yes, thank GOD for a/c.

    Sounds like fun. But quick question...why do you guys complain so much about the "Exit" signs?
