This was my view as I was stuck on Space Mountain. At the bottom of the picture, you can see the end of the pinch brakes that stopped us. You can also see the walkway and stairs on the right. If needed, the train could have been unloaded here and I could have walked down to the station. However, on this day, ride operators walked up to each train and manually pushed it out of the blocks. Since I was the lowest train on the course, the car I was riding in was pushed free first. The gradual downward slope of the track in front of me caused gravity to slowly send me back to the unloading platform.
