The rotating cabin is a real thing....I really want to know what is going on in that clip...
First, the Gondola just takes off down the hill, which makes no sense at all...
Second, why is the cabin spinning?
Third, those skis must by bolted to the floor, or completely immune to centripetal forces
Fourth, just everything else...
Fifth...Are there no towers down the hill?
Look up movie, Kingsman Golden Circle...Havent seen it, yet, but that explains everything.
I have seen the first one, loved it. Just haven't gotten around to the second one. I will admit, the tie in Statesmen Bourbon from Old Forester is pretty amazing.You should check both Kingsman movies out! great throwbacks to the Connery and Moore era bonds in a modern day setting. Delightfully witty and violent!
A version of the rotating gondola is in California, a pretty cool ride.
For communication.from inside the cabin to outside, there are colored flares under the seats.Was just wondering, are these things equipped with panic buttons or some kind of communication in case of a medical emergency onboard? Not sure what could be done but in the case of a breakdown how will passengers be communicated with?
Stop with these logical, well thought out, intelligent posts stating actual facts...it was posted on some guys Facebook page that he heard from a CM that it was 120 degrees in there so it’s obviously trueA car in the sun at 85 degrees
takes 30 minutes to reach 120 degrees.
- with no IR coated glass
- with no ventilation
The gondolas have
- IR coated glass
- ventilation at 11 mph
- over a minute of shade for every 7 minutes in the sun.
Took the words right out of my mouth. You'd have to wonder if they ever considered a 911 situation in their car on a deserted stretch of highway in a desert or mountain pass. One has to wonder what part of 7 minutes people don't understand.You will be in the air for less than 7 minutes. When you get to the station inform the CM about the emergency. It will likely take you longer to talk with 911 and describe the situation than it will to get to the next station.
So, laser-firing wrist watches, Aston-Martins with ejection seats, spaceship-swallowing spaceships, rocket bases in extinct volcanoes, and hijacked nuclear bombers didn't faze you?I hated this character so much.
Even as a young kid, it made no sense even in a movie.
So, metal teeth in a human jaw, limited by human jaw muscles and bone strength?
What could that do?
Hey, those might come in as "plausible" on the Mythbusters, though the laser wrist watch is beyond currently known technology and the spaceship and rocket bases are both too expensive even for S.P.E.C.T.R.E.. They wouldn't need to extort any money if they had enough to build those.So, laser-firing wrist watches, Aston-Martins with ejection seats, spaceship-swallowing spaceships, rocket bases in extinct volcanoes, and hijacked nuclear bombers didn't faze you?
Or walking through the parking lot. I'd bet if one person calls 911 from the middle of the TTC lot and another person calls 911 right after the gondola leaves the station, the EMT won't reach the person in the parking lot any faster.If you're on the monorail between Epcot and MK, same thing.
Or that you'll be in one during those pesky surprise hurricanes that pop up around Florida that looking at the weather channel doesnt warn you of.Or walking through the parking lot. I'd bet if one person calls 911 from the middle of the TTC lot and another person calls 911 right after the gondola leaves the station, the EMT won't reach the person in the parking lot any faster.
If anybody thinks riding the gondola is a risk, take a hike in a national park. Good luck if you have an emergency and there is no cell service (as there usually isn't). Same driving some very rural highways out west.
