There are few things in the world that really, truly can drive you insane when you think about it. But, if anything would drive me to complete and utter insanity, it would definitely be being trapped on a Disneyland ride with an annoying song playing on repeat over and over again. Apparently, on Wednesday, due to a transformer issue my ultimate nightmare became a reality for some who were left stranded on Disneyland’s California’s “Small World” ride for 30 minutes–with the song playing over and over. Of all the Disneyland songs, this has to be the worst.
Reports indicated that a transformer issue brought a small area of the theme park to a “standstill” While the ride wasn’t moving, the music did not stop playing. Imagine you’re stuck on a ride with your kids and can’t get up or move–but the world’s most obnoxious song will not stop playing? I’d rather here my kids complain about being stuck than listen to that song on repeat for 30 minutes.
Got stuck for 30m w/ 3 small kids on “it’s a small world” at @disneyland when the power went out. Backup generator turned on, letting one speaker turn on. Darn song is really stuck and kids can’t stop singing it.

A spokesperson for Disneyland issued their sincerest apologies for the guest who were stuck on the ride and probably haunted by that song for years to come. Twitter, however, felt horrible for those poor, innocent souls.
That sounds like my version of “No Exit”

Would be enough to make Noreaga confess.

This happened to my uncle for 3 hours over 50 years ago and to this day the only thing that really makes him angry is that song.

Omg there was a power outage at Disneyland and people were stuck on It's a Small World but the music was still playing lmao. I can't imagine how annoying that was.

My worst nightmare – so glad I wasn't at Disneyland today. Power went out to part of the park & people were stuck for over 30 minutes in the dark on the It's a Small World ride, but the music track kept going. OMG. pic.twitter.com/ZnaRhpqsC3
