O.K. all of you may laugh, but when I was on the wild Thing, we were at about 175ft on the lift hill when we stalled. Usually I love to stall on a coaster, but because of the height and the 25mph wind, I was scared to death! Tell me about all of your stalls!
When Wild Thing opened up in the first year the coaster kept getting stuck about half way up. The first year when I rode Wild Thing every time I got on it we stalled half way up. I dont get scared to much, but if we stalled on Millennium Force maybe a different story. I like heights. But even when I get stuck on Wild Thing I get the feeling we may start to roll backwards that's what get's me nervous. PS I work at Valleyfair 8yrs!
Yeah Wild Thing still gets stuck quite often. Every day I work I see it stall at least once. By now, I'm used to it, and I know its not a big deal, so I kind of feel lucky and enjoy getting stuck. The only scary part is when youre in the front and it gets stuck with the front car hanging over the drop (which is pretty rare.)

I got stuck on Steel Force at dorney park which is another morgan creation like wild thing. we were about 140 feet up the lift when it stopped and we sat for about 10 mins. i aslo got stuck on hercules at dorney right before the turn before the lift and we sat for about 2 hours which really pissed me off.
I got stuck on Raptor. I was screaming and laughing it was awesome. This lady behind me said "Stop laughing it isn't funny!" It was funny. Some lady had a fannypack on and it undid the seatbelt going up the lift. We were only about 50 feet off the ground. ------------- Bull rides:62 Batman rides:40
The closest I've ever gotten to getting stuck on a coaster is being first in line (in the station) on MF. Me and my brother had to wait for first row for an extra 1 hour! Some guy on MF put his hat on and it fell off and jammed a wheel at the end of the ride.
------------- Ah, Roller Coasters. An hour wait for a two minute ride.
I was on a stall once on the Beast at PKI. We were in the first train (me and a buddy) and we were about to crest when it just stopped. We were there for 10 minutes, but the freaky part was when the wind blew (i know this is natural, but it freak me out anyway), any small breeze made the entire lift shake. One gust had to reach 25 MPH, and the hill felt like it was tipping over! Great view but a freaky stall. What a day to ride it.
