  • As you step through the gates of any Disney theme park,

  • the magic comes alive immediately.

  • You walk into the park with an attraction in mind,

  • and head on over to that ride right away

  • But, sometimes the magic comes to a slight halt...

  • Although it's Disney where everything seems perfect,

  • the rides do break down from time to time,

  • especially since they're running constantly

  • upwards of 12 hours straight, some days with very little downtime. This could be

  • frustrating, especially if it's one of the rides you are really looking forward to.

  • Usually when a ride breaks down and you're let off the ride,

  • a Cast Member will give you a FastPass as a

  • consolation for the inconvenience.

  • Disney actually likes to use the term "In-Show Exit" when a ride does break down and

  • guests need to be let off. It has

  • more of a magical ring to it, don't you think?

  • Now, although getting stuck on a ride is usually not the most ideal situation, for us Disney fans,

  • it's something that we kind of wish happens from time to time,

  • having to go through an In-Show Exit

  • usually means you'll get a view of the attraction that the

  • average guest wouldn't normally see. So today,

  • We're gonna be counting down the top ten Disney ride breakdowns and In-Show Exits.

  • Number 10: The Little Mermaid.

  • Whether it's Journey of The Little Mermaid at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World,

  • or the Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea adventure at Disney California Adventure,

  • This ride seems to always break down.

  • The Omnimover ride system is a continuous circuit of vehicles that keep moving.

  • But, it does stop from time to time when people need assistance

  • at the load or unload, or for other minor reasons.

  • It's usually just a brief stop, and you can expect to hear this:

  • Sebastian: Oh, what's this?

  • Sebastian: You've come to a stop!

  • Sebastian: Hmm...maybe it's that sea witch!

  • Sebastian: Hmph!

  • Sebastian: Listen to me!

  • Sebastian: Stay seated in your clam shell while I get to the bottom of this!

  • This isn't really considered a breakdown,

  • since the ride usually starts back up again in a matter of seconds or minutes. But sometimes,

  • it's a more complicated issue that requires everyone to get off the ride.

  • Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please.

  • Announcer: We regret that our adventure cannot continue at this time.

  • You'll normally know this is about to happen because the work lights in the show building will turn on

  • so Cast Members can assist you

  • for the In-Show Exit.

  • In this particular ride you actually get pretty close to the animatronics

  • while you're walking off the attraction.

  • *Indistinct conversations*

  • Number nine: Pirates of the Caribbean.

  • If you've been on this ride before, you'll know you're riding on a boat

  • surrounded by water for most of the ride.

  • So you might be wondering: What happens when this ride breaks down and,

  • no.

  • It doesn't involve

  • swimming. At least... not for the guests.

  • So first off, the boats get backed up and become stacked behind one another on the ride path,

  • and then it's Cast Members to the rescue!

  • A very lucky cast member gets suited up in rubber waders, hops in the water,

  • then pushes the boats along the ride path towards the closest dock.

  • Once you get closer to the dock,

  • Another Cast Member then pulls the boat with a ride to its position

  • Then, another team of Cast Members help you out of the boat

  • to continue your In-Show Exit.

  • Cast Member: Congratulations!

  • Cast Member: You made it!

  • Woman: Thank you!

  • Number eight :Buzz Lightyear's

  • Space Ranger Spin.

  • In the Buzz Lightyear rides across the Disney Parks,

  • your ride vehicle and a lot of the show scenes take place on two different levels.

  • The show scenes are much lower than the vehicle track.

  • There's a good couple feet difference from the ground to the track.

  • Disney is all about safety first.

  • Announcer: Please remain seated!

  • Announcer: This ride has stopped temporarily.

  • So when the ride stops, and there's a

  • possibility of an In-Show Exit, the work lights come on,

  • and a railing is raised to create a barrier between the ride track and

  • the show scenes. This ensures that everyone who may need to walk off the ride is safe.

  • Now sometimes,

  • They don't need to actually go through with the In-Show Exit, so the railings are lowered the work lights turn off

  • Why you can say goodbye to your score no matter how many points you hide they get reset to zero during this process

  • But the good thing is that you actually get to go through the ride

  • Number seven Radiator Springs racers at Disney

  • California Adventure, you get the opportunity to take a fast speed ride through Radiator Springs

  • now this ride usually breaks down due to

  • Mechanical issues or bad weather if the outdoor portion of the right track has the potential to get wet then this could cause problems

  • for the ride vehicles

  • So they stop the ride if you get stopped while you're riding through the high-speed race it can be a bit jarring

  • In this case the right vehicle stops

  • so close to the load and unload platform that it wasn't a far walk along the track to the exit and

  • Even during in show exits. You don't stop standing in a line. I mean it wouldn't be Disney without lines right but in all seriousness

  • Disney always puts safety first and since this ride has a gap in the floor of the right track

  • They place a yellow and black metal plate over the gap for you to cross over making sure

  • Everyone's okay while getting them through as quickly as possible

  • Number six frozen ever after when frozen ever after opened at Epcot. It was constantly going down

  • Apparently the ride opened a little too soon in June of 2016 before all the tests had officially been completed

  • So it was fairly common for the ride to break down

  • sometimes it was an issue with the animatronics not working a

  • Sensor could have been tripped or even the switch track that allows your boat to go down the flume at the end of the ride

  • stopped working and most of these

  • Situations the work lights come on and cast members come into the ride to assist the guests for the intro exit

  • Now depending exactly where the riot stops

  • you'll either be guided through a back door or

  • Like in this clip taken along the platform on the side of the flume out to the attractions exit

  • Number five

  • aqua topia at Tokyo DisneySea aqua topia opened in

  • 2001 and was actually the second ride in Disney park history to utilize a trackless ride system

  • So you sit in a vehicle that resembles a hovercraft

  • That moves fairly quickly through the shallow Lagoon the water is only about two inches deep

  • But it seems like cast members at this attraction are always equipped with rubber boots to be able to walk through the water

  • Like this cast member here who goes in to retrieve an umbrella from the lagoon?

  • When this ride does stop working and breaks down the right vehicles are unable to move leaving the riders stuck in the lagoon?

  • But never fear this attraction also seems to have a lifetime supply of rubber boots for the guests

  • Now here's a serious question

  • Do you think the cast members collect the shoe size of each guest or do they just hand out any boot hoping that it fits?

  • oh

  • No

  • It also appears that since the lagoon is so shallow that the water does begin to drain for the in show exit even though there

  • Probably wouldn't be much water left in the lagoon the boots are most likely handed out to ensure the guests safety

  • Number four The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

  • Disney's Hollywood Studios is home to arguably one of the most popular thrill rides at the resort the

  • Ride system in Florida uses a wired guided vehicle that relies on a magnetic sensor to determine direction and speed of the vehicle

  • Sometimes the ride vehicle misses the magnet and is off by one

  • 64th of an inch causing the ride to stop

  • Is experiencing technical difficulties at this time when this happens

  • Cast members come to the elevator vehicle with a stepstool to guide you off the ride safely

  • one thing to note about these cast members especially is how reassuring and calming they are towards the guests and

  • Although you may be sitting in the right vehicle for over thirty minutes like any other in show exit

  • They make sure the guests are looked after

  • Three Splash Mountain

  • So Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom does break down from time to time?

  • it's common that the

  • animatronics stopped working or the music stops

  • By it like the other water rides the vehicles get into a bit of a log jam before officially breaking down

  • Once the logs have stopped moving a cast member then comes to assist each vehicle

  • They use a yellow rod to unlock the lap bars, then help guests onto the platform

  • Once everyone is safely out of their logs

  • They're escorted by a cast member through the ride to the nearest exit

  • Like The Little Mermaid ride this intial exit usually gets riders pretty close to the animatronics

  • Which is a pretty cool opportunity to be honest the path to the nearest exit definitely gives you a different perspective

  • And view of certain scenes in Splash Mountain like this view of the finale

  • Number 2 Space Mountain

  • Most of the rollercoasters at the Disney parks are enclosed indoors and in the dark such as Space Mountain and Disneyland

  • If you've ridden before you've probably been curious to know what the ride would look like if it wasn't in the dark

  • It's probably every Disney fans dream to go through this ride with the lights on and if the ride does go down

  • You'll most likely get this view

  • Travelers and rockets. Please really see it as your final continue elements both travelers awaiting departure

  • Your hostess will direct you

  • Now a few things can happen if Space Mountain goes down

  • One the lights turn on and a cast member needs to come assist your rocket and manually push it down the track

  • You then ride the rest of the rollercoaster with the lights on

  • Or two you're greeted by a cast member helps out of Yurok. It safely and proceed with the in show exit through the attraction

  • number one Ellen's energy adventure on August 13

  • 2017

  • Ellen's energy adventure at Epcot had its last day of operation on this attractions very last ride ever

  • Over 300 riders were in for a little surprise and experienced

  • What is probably the best Disney ride breakdown to ever happen?

  • According to this cast member vehicle one had a bad battery pack so

  • As the vehicles approached the diorama scene the battery gave out the ride stopped and the work lights came on

  • cast members then began the in show exit

  • but as they were going through the procedures cast members allowed guests to walk around the diorama take pictures and get really close to the

  • Animatronics, this is pretty much any Disney fans dream being able to roam around a Disney attraction freely

  • It's obviously not the ideal last ride that the universe of energy management team wanted

  • But in true Disney fashion this cast member made sure the experience ended on a high note

  • I mean even this giraffe on Kilimanjaro safaris blocking the path couldn't have stopped in a better place

  • Sometimes your ride experiences might not go as planned, but you can always find that little bit of Disney magic in every situation so

  • Are you one of those people that hopes?
