Ever been on a coaster when it broke down (got stuck, etc.)? in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted October 5, 2005 Never been stuck on a coaster but I've been stuck on Spider-man at IOA countless times. Once I was so close to getting evacuated. They homed the cars and then at the last possible moment it started again. Later thet day it started going down every 10 minutes. I talked with a ride op and asked if he knew why it was breaking down so much. He said the ride doesn't break down, it just stops.
