What rides have you been stuck on when they broke down?

In relation to Disney Parks but not specific to a single resort

I always run into a slowdown on HM or Spaceship Earth but never for more than 5 mins or so.

Evacuated by ladder from Peter Pan's Flight... that's the only time for me.

Once on Indiana Jones Adveture midway through the boulder scene. They turned on all the lights and behing the boulder is a amazinly huge warehouse and I saw how the 'under boulder' part worked.

No way! I waited over an hour to do a baby swap for Test track, then another 15 mins to get up to the cars, when it broke down. Last day of vacation. Bummer.
No, no... He's got a point.

Test Track always seems to break down when I ride for me as well. I don't think I've ever ridden it when it has worked properly from start to finish. I'm sure a lot of people have had a very similar experience though.

The two that stand out in my mind are Splash and the Haunted Mansion. Both times it was great having such delays during the ride because they're two of my favorites, but the experience I had at the Haunted Mansion was especially groovy because one of the stops happened right in front of the ballroom, my favorite scene.

I guess delays and stops can be a good thing! Test Track never seems to be a good thing, though...haha I usually don't mind getting stopped on Spaceship Earth either, unless it is when you're turned around moving backwards...yikes

Once in The Haunted Mansion in the Seance room for about 15 min. and several times in TPOC at the jail scene with the dog holding the keys..... "Here boy, Here boy...". Probably only exit delays.

That happened to us! I thought it was sort of relaxing, but the kids were freaking out...

Very brief though.

That's why Test Track is all hype. I've only actually been on it 3 times, and while I do have fun on it, I'd much rather do Mission: Space any day. 8)

I've had problems with that when working on Space Mountian. People trying to get out of their seats during a breakdown. It was usually a frightened child. They need to stay in because we usually push the rockets down from the break zones.

I once was stuck on Tower of Terror for about 15 min. The entire ride worked properly until we were loaded into drop position. The ride then stopped. We didn't drop. The lights came on and we kept hearing "Please remain seated -- this ride will resume at any time" or whatever the canned message was. People were getting a little antsy. We were then dropped with the lights on, which was actually cool. They let us get right back on if we wanted. Most people turned down the second chance, especially when they found out that they had to ride in a real elevator to get back to the original loading area! :D

I would so ride again. That's freaky to know you're above nothing while the ride was stopped :)
