Anyone else got stuck on pirates for over an hour just now?

this would be cool but extremely boring at the same time. - vincentchase1  672.9 #299 3:18PM
True, now that I think about it more. But if I had to choose between sitting in this an hour or walk off Screamin', it would be Pirates hands down. - HalfCaff  518.2 #402 3:41PM
Half calf I agree 100% hahaha my heart rate just went up a tad bit hahaha - BubbaLoo  870.6 #214 12:55AM
I've gotten stuck near the first drop for over an hour. All the boats were going crazy with the banjo. When the CMs asked if we needed anything, everyone said to turn off the music. - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #733 3:29PM
We've been stuck on it before.. once for about 35 min.. seemed like an eternity... we were stuck in front of the donkey, three pirates and dog singing an unending version of Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me.. we were making up our own words...=) - RobinandSteve  249.3 #1358 3:31PM
Good opportunity to see if the water tastes as good as it smells - madsdad  1868.2 #92 3:53PM
I can verify it does not. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 9:44PM
An hour? Wow, that's a long time to be stuck... and without phone reception! :) - ima-pirateswife  745.0 #260 3:22PM
"...there be squalls ahead, and Davey Jones waiting for them what don't obey..." - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 10:49PM

That would be ahh-mazing. - HalfCaff  518.2 #402 3:19PM
Yeah...I would've got up and walked through that water to get outta there. An hour is way too long. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 3:24PM
Two FEMALE cast member got into the water and pushed out boats to a close exit! They were amazing! - Tinkertoes83  40.0 #5222 3:45PM

No swim off?? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 3:26PM
just have to watch out for the mermaids! - bigpete  277.2 #1083 3:29PM
Oh no! Funny... In the last week, I've heard of 6 people being stuck on this ride for an extended period of time. At least you had MW! - KylaShea  632.7 #319 3:37PM

Mmmmm-the gingerbread! - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #81 11:45PM
Ya... My butt hurt after like 45min - Tinkertoes83  40.0 #5222 3:44PM
At least you were stuck at a good part of the ride! - Oinker34  1448.8 #116 3:47PM

Just be thankful that you didn't get stuck on IASW - SorcererD91  2897.4 #45 4:13PM
I got stuck on IASW for a half hour they only new we were stuck because no boats were coming out that song was in my head for weeks - stitchoholic  112.7 #3378 4:29PM
I got stuck on IASW before. Having to listen to the loop for such a long time was traumatizing. - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1505 10:22PM
Got stuck for an hour 15 years ago-will NEVER ride it again. I can't hear that song without my ears bleeding! - missyandpaul  285.8 #1004 11:16PM
Ah this would be awesome! I'm jealous! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 4:25PM
I would have gone nuts. Don't know why but I always have to use the bathroom halfway through the ride. Definitely would not have been able to hold it for that long. - KermitFan13  653.7 #306 9:42PM
Same here. I couldn't imagine getting stuck on that Knott's ride that got stuck for four hours that was on the news. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #642 10:48PM
OMG! Abandon ship abandon ship..send flaires..smoke signals..I would be twitching...then again it would be rather Sweet! Nvm carry on :) - Eeyorelvr  111.4 #3404 9:48PM
Over an hour? Wow I thought they let u. Off before it gets to be that long - dsmdanny  144.9 #2795 9:54PM
At Pirates they will hold off on doing an evac as long as possible... It takes time to get all of the CMs together. When Pirates has to do an evac, they will pull any and all CMs who have Pirates knowledge to help out. This means short-handing other attractions. Pirates is a water ride so water may need to be drained to help with the evac. Lots of things to consider in evacuations! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:07PM
And they sometimes need the fire dept to assist since people may have to climb from boat to boat to evacuate. I believe Sonja and Bullseye had that happen to them once. - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 10:10PM
Where does the water go then? I mean do they have a reservoir to save it and then pump it back in? Just curious. - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 10:19PM
^Or if the guests are unable to walk, transfer from boat to boat due to needing a wheelchair or other assistance device. I'm sure it's similar at other attractions too. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:19PM
You should have stood up and said to everyone "I'm on a BOAT!" - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 10:30PM
DON'T YOU EVER FORGET!!!! - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 10:33PM
I got my Swim trucks and my FLIPPY FLOPPYS!!!! (Alice you just rocked my world I heart you lol) - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 1:01AM
Yes!! We were right in front of Carlos when we stopped. After about 25-30 min, we finally got to walk off. CM's told us that a boat started taking in water near the track merge under the bridge. Scary! - McPoppins  3.7 #26739 10:45PM
At least you weren't on the last incline. I think that would of made me nauseous! - missyandpaul  285.8 #1004 11:18PM
Was one of the last boats to make it out before it got stuck! Definitely noticed a few things weren't working! - jacquelinealy  16.9 #8047 11:42PM
I'd want to stop right before the drop! - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 1:03AM
