Default River Breakdown

On La Salle's Riverboat Adventure, were there any animations that had a bad habit of malfunctioning or breaking down?

I remember the cave doors not opening. I also remember once the water didn't separate but the doors opened and we went through it anyway. The "beaver tree" was notorious for either not falling, or raising back up way before the boat was out of sight.

All the animations broke down occasionally, except for Jacques and Pierre- they were always "hanging around!"

The most fun to be had with malfunctioning animations was when the fort's cannons shot out fire and the river splashed for the cannon balls, but the "boom" sound effect did not happen. We covered the really awkward moment by saying something about the clever Spaniards using silencers. It usually got a laugh.
