Theme park rides occasionally break down. Not every time is there someone famous aboard to live-tweet the experience. That’s just what happened to former Major League pitcher Jamie Moyer on Friday after he got stuck on the California Screamin’ ride at Disneyland in Anaheim, California with a bunch of other less-famous people.
Moyer and his family were stuck on the ride for about 30 minutes, which gave him ample time to take photos & let everyone know about their predicament on Twitter.
