Me and my brother got stuck on SSE on the backwards descent for about 20 mins.
2)Splash Mountain.Ride stopped as I was coming down to the big splash.Stopped,looking down was an interesting place to be!
Must be an omnimover thing. When I've gone on Haunted Mansion, being briefly stuck in the room with Madame Leota just seems like a part of the ride now.For me it is ALWAYS Haunted Mansion and The little mermaid
I've never been evacuated from a ride, but the last few times I've been to WDW, Haunted Mansion stopped at least once every time I rode it. The worst thing about it was that the audio in the Doom Buggy continued to play while the "playful spooks have interrupted our tour" spiel came on. Lame.
Back in 2007, I was on HM at WDW during a really bad thunderstorm. I believe lightening hit the building while I was in the ball room scene. Not only did the ride stop, but the power cut off for a few seconds...no music, but real thunder from outside and the ghosts were still there. Also riding HM a couple of years back, got stuck in the scene with the piano player. Awesome.
It seems an overwhelming response is that the repetition of the ride soundtrack over and over again (think IASW non-stop) during a breakdown is a very frustrating commonality. Since they have a "reboot" audio loop ready for the monorail and some rides (i.e. HM), it makes us wonder why they don't have a similar loop for all the rides and/or simply dump to either background music or Disney TV type music. We know it would cost $, but it could help "show".
I am kind of claustrophobic, so if 20000 Leagues ever had stopped for any longer than a few minutes while I was on it, I think I would have freaked out a bit.Back in the 70s I rode the 20,000 Leagues ride, and my most vivid memory is seeing an animatronic crab with the whole "face" ripped open, and you could see gears turning inside.
