The title is pretty much self explanatory, share your AT moments were you have got stuck on

Skyride (we all saw this ride coming): I was suspended at the middle point of the skyride for a couple of minutes, Then it started working again.

I think everyone has had that one.
Ohhh when it stops, the way it swings. :shock:


Pretty sure I was sat on Oblivion for 5 mins or so before it came back into the station. There was an obligatory cheer when it started moving again.

Yeah, that's not a breakdown I'm afraid, if the pods need to stop in one station (to allow disabled guests on for example) then to prevent a buildup all pods will stop, the alarm will then sound shortly before operation resumes.

At At I've broken down on Oblivions break run for about ten minutes and The Flume for about the same (before the final lift). Have also sat in Airs break run for god knows how long. That's it I think.

Had evacs before but not at the Towers.

When I went to the scarefest around 2-3years ago, I was queueing for Rita and half of the park had a power cut! X-Sector and Dark Forest would sort of 'not work'! The toilets wouldn't flush and all the food stalls had to close!  :(

I was stuck on Hex when the drum wouldn't line up with the benches! We had to leave the way we came in and exited next to Driving School.

Nothing notable at AT (aside from the standard Skyride break down) however if anyone has had the pleasure of experiencing Harry Potter at Islands Of Adventure they should come to realise it breaks down a bloody lot!

Second time I went on it the ride stopped with our robo-arm very close to being upside down.

That wasn't the worst part of it, we had to sit in the same position for a good 5 minutes...........with a dementor directly in front of us. And if you've been on that ride you know how close they get!

Haunts my dreams!

I got stuck on Duel. I know it stops a lot when there is a problem boarding but it broke down and I was stuck in Trommel for 5 minutes! I had to shut my eyes as I was begining to get nauseous!

I experienced a chessington power cut being stuck a bit out the station (I was in the back and only the last 3 were not in station)

Not very exciting, but heres one ...

A few years ago, stuck on the black hole whilst going up the ride stopped, and we thought we were at the top about to drop, then a pause, and another stop, and nothing for a short while.
Then the lights came on, and we were on some sort of spiral trac, looking down towards the bottom we could see someone walking very slowly up the walkway next to the spiral track, we asumed this was to relase the harnesses so we could get off and walk down the gangway
when the staff finaly arrived they told us that there was a technical problem, and asked if we were all OK, (we asked if we could get off, and walk down but they wouldnt let us)
So after what seemed like forever (it was only 30 minutes or so) the ride started and completed its normal run - with the lights on.
Once at the bottom/exit they let us stay on and complete the ride in the dark, following on from this we each got a Disabled access pass to jump the que via the disabled entrance on one ride.

i've never had a big ride breakdown, i've beens tuck in the que when they have though  :box:

Duel Broke down a few years ago and we were stuck near the spider section for just under 20 mins, then all life burst forth and we were away again..... Very bizzare when is turned off and quiet in there.

I went on wednesday and halfway through the oblivion lift hill it broke and we stuck only for like 3-5 minutes and we could hear them announcing below that they had technical difficulties but then it started again. Lol, not a very exciting story...

This isnt really a breakdown but Oblivions hold didnt work, we just went straight over the edge.
