    Universal Orlando Reopening Survey

    Universal Orlando Reopening Survey

    Well, masks are back.  It's a sure sign of pandemic.  We're still NOT riding.  Recently, Universal Orlando put out a survey asking prospective guests what will make them feel comfortable to return to the parks when reopening is possible.  It's a very interesting topic.  The survey asks many intriguing questions and the classic analysis on this show is insightful.  In-f'n-wonderful!  
    We hope you're staying safe and healthy out there!

    Thanks for NOT Riding

    Wow!  It's 2020 and things couldn't be any better.  We've had flying cars for 5 years now, the Cubs just keep winning the World Series and medicine has advanced so far that we're healthier and safer than... oh wait...
    Oh well, we have pocket computers that we call phones and some people are working on "Real" sex robots.  Haha!  It'll never work.  So, things haven't progressed the way we'd hoped, but we still have podcasts.  And on this on, you're gonna get plenty of quarantine worthy current event analysis.  Just how will 2020 play out for the amusement industry?  Come on down.  Let's find out together.  This content is so good you'll be sheltering in place long after you need to just to listen to more.  Take care of yourselves!

    Station to Station

    Station to Station

    We parked in the parking lot, waited in the queue (maybe even endured a preshow or two), now we're in the station about to board the ride vehicle.  There's a lot to take in at this stage of the attraction.  For instance the station could be enclosed or exposed to the elements, have separate load/unload, theming, etc.
