I have no idea what you’re talking about. This is the RotR thread.
Haha this is the result of me multitasking at work 😂 I was responding to someone on another thread but it somehow responded to your post that I had quoted earlier and didn't remove. Oops. Sorry for the confusion to everyone! 🤭

Anyway, the ITS shuttle movement is similar to standing on a boat/cruise ship that is gently rocking back and forth.

There are 4 escape pods.
Interesting, but I’ve never seen the left two ever used, and I’ve watched about a dozen POVs. Are they just backup, or have all youtubers just happened to take the right ones?

No worries. 😀

Plus, the time in the escape pod is significantly shorter than the dispatch interval, so I see no reason for 4, other than backup.

There are 4 and they are all utilized. I think the dispatch interval is lower than you think it is.

2 prison transports are escaping during your ride so you use 2 escape pods to get back to Batuu. The 3rd and 4th escape pods are there to reset from 2 prison transports that have escaped before you and waiting for 2 new prison transports to escape after your escape. It's systems engineering 🤷‍♂️

Left side escape pods being used at the 14:00 min mark

Ah okay, just rewatched, I know the dispatch interval but wasn’t realizing the whole escape pod thing amounts to closer to a minute. Okay cool.

Aren't there 3 prison cells? If so, I can't imagine the interval being much more than a minute based on the time in the cell.
There are four, they dispatch in pairs alternately every ~60 seconds, so two vehicles are dispatched every ~30 seconds. If anyone knows the exact times that’d be cool.

We had the opportunity to ride RotR last week and absolutely loved it (hadn't watched any video or read reviews beforehand). It was an absolutely amazing, immersive E-ticket attraction; from the queue to unload. The scale and sets were stunning and we defintely bought into the narrative and felt like we were participating unlike any other attraction ever. I do have one question however...

If we were to find one tiny nitpick, it would be the length of time between entering the star destroyer hangar bay, and being put into a holding cell. In our case, it was 15 minutes, and that affected the flow just a tad. I do appreciate that since we have been captured, any lenth of time is possible, but a shorter time would have been preferable. My question is, is this typical or should the time for that transition have been shorter? Thanks.

By design it should be shorter. However due to operational delays and other factors it will often be typical.

I mean... I hope this doesn’t come off as stupid - I’m sure there’s an answer I haven’t thought of -, but how do the escape pods... um, “drop”, in space?

They vehicles ride into a lift which then literally drops them for a second. The lift is like the Star Wars vehicles that can pitch around like a simulator. Remember, earlier, your vehicle rode a lift up to the second floor. This is the down lift. Pretty much what Tower of Terror does.

Because there's some type of artificial gravity at work on the Star Destroyer. When your pod ejects it's still within the envelope of the gravity.

-Rob
Oh, the question was about gravitational mechanics and not about the ride mechanics.

The simplest explanation of feeling a 'drop' in space being ejected from a starship is that you're being ejected from a starship. Acceleration in the direction of one's feet offsets any sort of artificial gravity the pods or starship has.

If one was in an artificial gravity field of a starship and you jumped off a catwalk, you'd feel like you're dropping. And if you were yanked down off that catwalk... same thing.

Do you mean how does the ride work? Or how would it work 'in canon'? The answer to the second is that they are launched away from the ship with thrusters, the same as when the launch vehicles for the real life space fleet separate.
