I was reading the thread about the indie ride breaking down and was reminded of an experience I had on a ride breaking down, and it was not pleasant. I thought it would be fun to share some "scary" experiences on broken down attractions.
I was solo on pinnochio (yes I know, a very, very scary attraction) when suddenly it just stopped! I was in limbo for about five minutes when a CM announced that they would be there shortly to offer assistance. the scary thing was that I was stopped in the area where they start to destroy pleasure island. For some reason only part of the sound effects were turned off. I was in front of the pool hall scene where you see the siloutes of the boys fighting and the only sound effect still going was the voice saying "tobacco road" over and over and over again. All the visual effects were still working, it was still dark and there was just that voice "tobacco road, tobacco road, tobacco road". I thought I was in a bad dream! What seemed like 10 min later a smiling CM came and ushered me off the ride (always an enjoyable experince for a Disney fan, as I am sure you know ) there was also the time on splash mountain and the stairs (but that is another story!)
