  •  Actually, the worst place I ever "stalled" was... (2+ / 0-)

    atop what was (at the time) the highest roller coaster in North America, at the very peak... suddenly the thing shut down and smoke started coming from the controls... I was trapped up there for almost 2 hours with my friend Jordan and two girls who were both very afraid of heights (don't ask me what they were doing on the roller coaster to begin with).

    Anyways, someone eventually had to climb the ladder on the side of the coaster to the very top where we were stuck, and take us back down to the bottom manually (backwards) using a hand brake.

    I had a fear of heights for about a year after that.
