Tasty.
THC selectively targets and destroys tumor cells while leaving healthy cells unscathed. Conventional chemotherapy drugs, by contrast, are highly toxic; they indiscriminately damage the brain and body.

Toke up...

Lol that's Epic....

Has anyone been on a real long breakdown?

I guess after the first 5mins it's very boring?!?!

I got evaced off of a first generation Intamin drop tower at Movieland Studios in Italy. We were stuck at the top for about 10 mins before this Italian bloke appeared out of nowhere and said he was going to take us off, we then had to walk down alot of stairs.... :P

Got stuck on Air in the station and then in the brake run on the same go, lost all feeling in my groinal areas...  :oops:

By far the best/worst for me was getting stuck on Th13teen in the crypt.  We rolled in and stopped then nothing happened.  So we waited. And waited. And waited. After a bit an attendant came into tell us what was happening and stood having a chat with us for a bit. Then the tech showed up and got the hydraulics working very slowly.  We then sat in the bottom crypt for another 5 or so minutes while they woke the hamsters back up to get it going backwards.  In total, we were in the crypt for nigh on 20 minutes (so it was quite interesting to take in).  They got us off the ride saying they'd send us round again, sent the next lot of people through (which caused some complaints as to why they went and we couldn't stay on - I was happy in case the same fault occurred, let some other poor buggers sit there... :D) then had another go, hitch free.

My sister and I got stuck on Th13teen in the drop section part. It was our second time on it that day and a man came in to explain there was a problem...he went away, because it was new everyone thought that was part of the ride...after 10 minutes he came back started talking to us, was really funny actually, he explained that the ride was stuck and that we would be evacuated...only to then be told on walkie talkie it was ok to be lowered down slowly...half an hour passed and it was confirmed we were getting off...by this time it was really uncomfortable...he was talking to us and next minute we all just dropped...i couldnt stop laughing, people were at the front crying because they didnt know that that was going to happen and thought that it had fell through the floor in terms of it broke...then we got stuck on that section down there too...the man explained that we would be shot backwards to save more tears at the front of the train aha...

Queued for Air once for 2 1/2 hours during scarefest about 5 years ago. Thought i was going to wet my pants. Got into the flying position. *Prepare for Air...now fly*...

we stayed in the station in that position for nearly 40 minutes while the engineer took his time to get there and reset the ride. I did weigh up the option of just wetting my pants then getting on the flume to make it look authentic...seriously. Worst. Pain. Ever

When I went on Th13teen for the first time in April 2010 we got stuck! Just before the drop section we got stuck on the bit where it slows down! We were waiting for like 10-20 minutes or so and after that it was off and running again! And at the end we were given Th13teen fast passes to use another time! (I used them for Scarefest 2010) So that was my Th13teen break down experience! :P

I also had a breakdown on Ripsaw during my visits over the Fireworks event this year.  We were stuck upright just before the ride lowers for about 10 minutes and was eventually bought back to ground level.  The ride wasn't closed for long and we went back on it a short time afterwards.

I also had an interesting wait for a ride on Rita during the same trip - staff had to remove a man who'd had a few alcoholic drinks and we all waited with curiosity to see who it was. Following a bit of opposition from the culprit concerned, he was removed and we got our ride :)

Duel broke down for about 5 min whilst I was on it. At first I thought they were just letting on a person with a wheelchair, but then it kept stopping after that, and sometimes slowed down to almost a standstill. What was worse though was the fact that I hate animatronics, so this was a really, really, horrible experience...

I had exactly  the same experience! Luckily we had gone past some of the zombies, but we were stuck in the trommel tunnel instead. Was very disorientating.
