One of my favorite theme park memories was being evacuated out of the Pinball ride at the World of Sid and Marty Krofft, the Atlanta indoor theme park that lasted only one season.

Perhaps if the rides hadn't broken down so often that first season, there would have been subsequent seasons.

Oddly enough, CNN now occupies the space the theme park did.

My mother was evacuated off of POTC once. I wasn't on the ride at the time, so I do not know details, but a guy in the boat in front of her disembarked and try to steal a gold necklace off the cursed treasure tableux.

Christopher Combs, you are the second person I've met who has that dream. My wife is obsessed with the dream of getting to evac off a ride. Since I'm a former Disneyland CM I've been able to walk the tracks/go behind the scenes in many Disney attractions, and she's always been pretty jealous of that.

Thanks for sharing that story, Robert. There's a book in there somewhere...
