Ever been on a coaster when it broke down (got stuck, etc.)? in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted October 16, 2014 I was stuck on the Green Lantern at SFMM when my family was visiting on a vacation. I know way back when it first opened it had a problem with locking the car back into place once it was going into the station. Long story short, the cart kept going in place and then releasing itself probably about 20 times. It was weird, because after the fourth or fifth time the speakers automatically told the queue lines the ride was experience a technical difficulty and would reopen soon. It wasn't too long of a process, probably around ten minutes. Last year the platform on Delirium at Kings Island wouldn't come up and it forced us to sit on the ride for about twenty minutes. I have never in my life seen so many managers from the park standing all around and interacting with the guests. Some of them even fooled with the panel trying to get the platform up before maintenance came. Kings Island's response was awesome. And finally, after waiting all of my life, I got stopped on a lift hill. It happened right after opening on GateKeeper one morning in July. Some smart person decided to get their phone out. I credit the ride operators for their attention and quick response. And while some people were yelling at the ride operator as she came to get the phone, I was happy. It was nice to see them keeping everyone else safe when it comes to idiots pulling out their phone. We were probably about 2/3 the way up the hill, and the whole process took about five minutes.
