Rides break down all the time; it is a very typical part of a theme Park experience. Rides can stop because of a technical malfunction, something falling on the tracks, or even an issue with Guest behavior. However, fans were stumped when this Guest’s ride experience was because Disney “ran out of time.”

“What Does That Even Mean???”

A video posted by the user @realmousevibes shows a group of Guests being escorted off of Space Mountain by a Disney Park Cast Member who says that they ran out of time. The user and many commenters are very confused by what this means.

Thankfully, some fans have been able to weigh in on what exactly it means to “run out of time.” Apparently, Space Mountain is a very sensitive ride, and in order for everything to run smoothly, the ride vehicles must be sent off in 30-second intervals.

At Disney, safety is the number one priority, and there are strict protocols on all rides, especially high-speed roller coasters like space mountain. As strange as this situation might have seemed, it has become clear that this is quite a common occurrence at this theme Park attraction.
