S'alright for some getting all these freebies!
Being an AA local, I think all of my breakdowns have been on their rides.
I can't count the amount of times I've been sat on Nightmare Niagara (RIP) and been stuck in the tunnel before the second lift hill - what a nightmare! I remember vividly this time when a woman and her children were in the station, and the kids didn't want to go on, but she dragged them on anyway. "Mummy I want to get off!" "Tough, you're going on!"
We stopped in the tunnel before the second lift and were stuck there for about ten to fifteen minutes before a mechanic even noticed! In the meantime, Marmar El Thicko decided to get her kids out of the boat, walk them across the side of the channel and drag them into the ride area of The Runaway Train! What a dumbass! Jesus, that mechanic guy went nuts when he saw her wandering about.
I've been stuck a fair few times on The Missile (RIP) too. Once was "oil check" great.. And the another was on the backwards lift which decided not to move.. Lurvley. I can remember a few years back when I went with some other rollercoaster enthusiasts, we got to Space Port in thunder and lightning, to find The Missile had valleyed between the last loop and the backwards lift - hahahaha! Some very soggy people stuck on there who didn't look too impressed at us laughing at them :lol:
Ahhh good old AA.. Some good memories there.. The rides are no longer :(
At the Towers I've been stuck on the Oblivion brake run for lord knows how long - I ended up on the phone to my mum in the end :-s Don't know how I managed that!
Been stuck on the Skyride for about fifteen minutes (hasn't everyone) and got all the way to the station of The Flume after waiting in terrential rain for an hour to be told it was closed indefinately.. :-| Thanks..
Apart from that I think I've been pretty lucky :mrgreen:
