    OMG i have just read the cable car at Bush gardens broke down yesterday. 73 people were stranded for 2 hours 50 feet up in the air. This is my worst nightmare on rides as i am so scared of hights. I remember this happening on the Magic Kingdom one, years ago, we were having lunch in a cafe and i was watching, it never moved while we were in there although there were people on it.

    That's really scary thought and I'd hate to be in that situation; my sister is scared of heights and would probably be deafening me with screaming!

    When I was younger, me and my family went on the Pinnochio ride at DLP, and the ride got stuck prior to the part where you see J. Cricket and Pinnochio locked up by the evil show guy. My sister was in tears! (she was about 5 or so at the time). Luckily, the repairs didn't take that long and we were quickly onto the good parts of the ride.

    When you wish apon a star.... the ride starts working.. lol

    Is that Montu Paul?

    I'm afraid getting stuck on that would be my worst nightmare.

    A few years back, when we were touring Busch Gdns, Kumba stopped with guests stuck at one of the highest points - apparently the computer locked the ride down as it 'sensed' a problem. We watched aghast as waaaaaayyy up a metal ladder, one by one they were released from their over the shoulder harnesses and then climb down this ladder - I felt SO scared for them.
    Python and Scorpion were also locked down - the rides remained down for hours, eventually re-opening late afternoon.

    (That would be Montu Paul - the thought of being upside down as well as goodness knows how many feet in the air is horrifying!)
