Ever been on a coaster when it broke down (got stuck, etc.)?


Recommended Posts

I've never actually gotten stuck, but onetime on S:UF, i was sooo scared, i pulled down my shoulder harness and it locked my feet in and locked the lap thingy in; but for those who have ridden on it already know that it has a vest type thingy that keeps your upper body in...well...my vest thingy didn't lock so the whole time i was hanging there by the bars that you hold on to...it didn't lock until coming out of the pretzel loop, it was pretty scary...

I got stuck on the brake run of Millennium Force for about 15 minutes on the last ride of the night. The guy next to me was nervous about riding and absolutely stapled himself into the seat as hard as he could, so he was pretty uncomfortable sitting there .We all got free front of the line passes for any ride the next day.

 

Gnome and I also got a 10 second little carousel-style ride on La Revolucion at Knott's before it broke down.

At magic mountain one day on DeJa Vu when we went up the second spike the train released and then stopped again.It released again and didnt have enough speed to get through so it vallied we were stuck their for a good 45 minutes until they started letting people out and down the stairs.This was awful because it was extremely windy. All in all i thought it was pretty cool experience and we got to cut the line on x!

On V2 launched went backwords through the station then stopped commin back through. I know this isnt a coaster but it still broke. At PGA the swinging iverter ship broke and the restraints locked before we went. It crushed down on my chest instead of were is was supposed to and I couldnt breath until they got me off in 3 min it hurt like hell.

About 2 Years ago I got stuck on "THE BAT" at (PCW) Paramont Canada's Wonderland. It was not fun at all. The train got stuck just under one of the loops and some people where stuck upsidedown for 2 to 3 hours in on a hot summer day. Luck for me and my friends we where near the base of the track so we where ok. 8) "The Bat" at PCW is just like the Boomerange ride.

 

uhhhh... i don't remember that happening. was it on the news at all?

I got stuck on the lift hill on Grizzly Bear at lightwater valley.There were 2 girls sitting behind me absolutly terrified because they thought we were going to roll back down the hill.We were stuck for about 15 minutes.Shame the ride was dull after the 15 minute stall though,it would have been ok if it was a decent ride.

I have been stuck and evacuated from Fujiyama at fuji Q highlands. We were the first train out of the station for the day and got stuck just before the top. It took about 45 minutes before they got us down. Missed getting the credit by about 15m. Did get some pics from up there and 2 front seat rides on Dodonpa because of it.

I was stuck on Medusa's brake run for 10 minutes and got stuck on boomerang (harness wouldn't release so I got a reride...luckily I was in the front seat. Lastly, my bro and I got stuck on V2's launch area as it was going thru it's second launch. Instead of speeding thru, it slowed down.

 

Are you talking about gadv's Medusa if you are I was there that day, when I was going to get in line I saw the train stuck on the midway brakes so I just decided to go on the Log Flume instead. When I was on Buzz Lightyear in WDW and I was stuck for 45 minutes at 1 in the morning we didn't get evacuated but I did get like 80,000 points by shooting at the same target the whole time . Also in a little local park by me I was on Chaos and after the ride was over my safety bar wouldn't release so I was stuck in my seat for 10 minutes while everyone else was able to get off.

The only rollercoasters I've been stuck on were at Laronde: Vampire 45mins, the two first cars of the train stopped after the station and the ride op couldn't get the restraints to open. Then on the Boomerang. The cable or something snapped, the train was halfway to the top then rolled back to the station.

 

Not very exciting.
