News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

You know you may joke but I can bet that there will be some support facebook group or page about how someone rode this and didn't die. It's like the people who clap when the airplane lands normally... :facepalm:
If you have been on the train in Harry Potter's world at Uni, you are familiar with the window projections. Years ago as I was getting on a plane I would utter the words from an old Bill Cosby record... "Sure hope the plane don't crash!" After many flights I finally realized what is happening with airplanes. I came to this realization when on my first flight on a Jumbo jet. I was able to figure it out. Anyone that has been on those monsters know logically that there isn't a chance of a snowball in hell of that thing ever getting airborne. So what happens is that there is a special road that those jets run on, never leaving the ground, and projecting images of looking down at clouds, ant sized buildings appearing to be way below. With a loop that shows the window image of being in a plane that is taking off and at the end of a plane landing and assorted potholes on the pavement simulating turbulence it just seems real. So it cannot fall from the sky because it never actually takes off. That had a calming affect on me. That is also what will be happening with the Gondola's, so everyone should just relax.

You look up ahead and see the station is on fire from the curved glass roof superheating the inside but the cable is inexorably pulling your cabin towards the inferno. What to do?
Jump into the alligator infested brain eating amoeba swamp to escape certain death?
Pray that the main drive fails and the backup fails to kick in?
Hope the Fast and Furious guys swoop in on drones so you climb up on the wire?
Sit calmly and mutter "the mouse can do no wrong, the mouse can do no wrong"?

Start singing the theme from pirates of the caribbean and drink ALL the rum fast?
What a dilemma.

They need to equip them with ejector seats with steerable parachutes.
