  1. Ohhhhhhh! There’s “emergency kits” in each gondola, is there?

    Yeah, sure! THAT makes it all worth it…to be stuck suspended over WDW…in the Florida heat and maybe in ONE OF THE ENDLESS LIGHTENING EVENTS BUT SURE…THERE’S AN “EMERGENCY KIT” IN EACH GONDOLA!


    I’d rather take mt chances on a ride in a grounded 737 MAX!
