Test Track goes down while we were onboard

We had a nice surprise on Sunday when Test Track had a car stall right at the exit area to the outside track. This caused the entire ride to shutdown while we were 1/2 through the ride. The interior lights all came on and they actually let us run the coarse, right up to the point where the broken down car was located. I guess they wanted to get all cars as close to one another before allowing people to disembark their respective vehicles. We probably sat for a good 20-30 minutes on the ride before a CM came and ask us to follow him out. We were all single file and had to stay behind the yellow line. I managed to snap a few pictures and a short video while inside the ride, but not in the corridors leading out. You actually get spit out in the room full of the Chevrolet show room cars. We must have climbed 6 or 7 stories worth of stairs, as well Had no idea how high up we were from the ground from where we got off the ride. I guess that is the Magic of Disney.. Anyway, thought I'd share that with y'all and a few pics I took.. That's my son in the pic. showing off his car and it's place on the scoreboard. The other pic. is the line of folks waiting to get off the ride. It was a neat experience to have done this once..

Would ya believe the very next day, same thing happens to us on Star Tours confused

Today we're off to Magic Kingdom to celebrate Mardi Gras with the rest of the large contingent of Louisianians.. awesome stars

Wow! Did they give you a fast pass to ride it again when it was back up?

The last time we went on TT, it stopped/broke down as well. We stopped just before you go outside to do the 'speed test'. There was very little light, actually pretty dark. They announced that the ride was about to restart, opened the doors and wow the sudden bright light was blinding. Spent the rest of the ride squinting laugh laugh

What is going on with Test Track? On our last trip it went down three times while we were in line (it took 40 min to get on and we had FastPasses) and then it stopped for a couple of minutes while we were on the ride too but they got it going again before they had to escort us off.
