VERY true. On a smaller scale, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has a sky ride with three stations that connect in a big triangle where you can get on or off at any point in the triangle. The cable is constantly moving, but the cars connect and disconnect from the cable in the stations allowing as much load/unload time as necessary. Granted, these are the smaller 2-4 person cars, but I'm sure the concept can be scaled up.Also you can definetely have a load point in the middle of the system. There are several examples of this around the world
I guess gondolas aren't really a common thing down in the swamps, but absolutely, I've been on several that have a mid course exit/entry point. There's no reason they couldn't introduce several.Also you can definetely have a load point in the middle of the system. There are several examples of this around the world
The largest building at CBR is similar in size to the TTC monorail station, including the Epcot line.I can't help but notice the proximity to all the water elements... which I have to think is more about some sort of utility/upkeep/infrastructure and not guest stuff.
Has anyone worked out the size of these buildings from the maps?
OK, so a couple things that occurred to me...
If that's correct, I'd say that's the hub. One line to Epcot, one to DHS, and there is an extension to Pop/AoA, it just ends here, so you need to transder to one of the other lines to get to a park.The largest building at CBR is similar in size to the TTC monorail station, including the Epcot line.
It'll stop running every afternoon?Wonder how this will work in situations for Severe Storms/Hurricanes and Power outages while the cabin is in mid-transit...
It has been mentioned they have them in the Caribbean.Ok so as someone mentioned can these gondolas withstand hurricane force winds?
Also no one has mentioned it but what do gondolas have to do with Caribbean Beach? I wonder if the plan is to change the name and theme of CBR?
Planes handle lightning too but they don't like it. Let alone a family with 2.4 children wearing mouse ears. I'd assume the path can travel close to grade aside from crossing highways and parking lots, where it would just need to be as high as an intersection bridge.
I know the owner of the skyride you rode in St. Thomas, to get to Paradise Point. This is definitely an interesting choice on Disney's part. Weird, but hey, it may work.It has been mentioned they have them in the Caribbean.
I rode one in St Thomas last fall. And no, the traditional system doesn't like wind. Or lightning.
Which is why people are guessing. If you have information, share it or at least tell us where to look.Those permits you are referring to are not site plans and do not even show everything even within the areas covered. They are permits with SFWMD and represent modifications to the watershed only. They do not and are not meant to show everything that will be constructed or demolished in the area.
Wel, well. Did you mean to confirm this or is that a typo?It'll stop running every afternoon?
It is indeed a gondola transportation system that's being planned.
A little odd I know given the central Florida climate and it's a shame it's not a WEDway but it is a real thing.
