Tens of thousands of people visit the Disneyland Resort in Southern California every day. During their day at the Happiest Place on Earth, they enjoy things like turkey legs, Dole Whips, parades, and a ton of great attractions. One of those attractions is Pirates of the Caribbean, which originally opened in 1967 and has been a must-do attraction ever since.  The popular ride takes Guests from the bayou into the Caribbean where they encounter a band of pirates who sing one heck of a catchy tune as they pillage and plunder the local town.

Unfortunately, some Guests riding the attraction recently had quite the experience when the boat they were riding went off the tracks as they were approaching the exit.

At the end of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland, Guests go up a large hill before the boat turns, and they are brought to the exit. The boat in question made it up the hill, but when it went to turn towards the exit, something happened and the boat went off of the track and up onto a side rail. TikTok user @magical_disney_day was in line when the accident happened and filmed the boat stuck on the track, leaving the Guests unsure of what to do.

Here is more information on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland Resort:

Strike yer colors! Your adventure begins in a shadowy bayou, where you’ll board a weathered barge. Plunge down a waterfall in the dark and float through the spectral world of Pirates Grotto. Dead men tell no tales—but they guard their treasure for all eternity. 

Navigate cannon fire between a fort and a 12-gun galleon. Glide into port and behold brazen buccaneers drunk on pillaged plunder. Skulk past the well-armed lass who commands a colorful auction of villagers’ goods. 

Sing along as sea roving scalawags serenade you with their classic shanty, “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me).” Witness flames engulf the town and pass prisoners trapped in their jail cell, doggedly trying to escape. 

Keep a spry eye out for sly Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, as he schemes to get his hands on the spoils. 

If ye be seekin’ adventure, ay—you’ve come to the proper place!

While there is no follow-up as to what happened, Disneyland Cast Members are trained to keep Guests safe in any situation, including ones like this. Disney Cast Members were probably swift to jump into action to get the boat back into the water and Guests on their way as quickly as possible.
