I miss it. Saw a comedian at The Punchline. Said he would purposely block the door and yell, "Why am I being delayed!" Then the robot says, "We are being delayed because someone has interfered with the door."

Sorry, double post.

I am if my being late was bigger then 3 mil. dead. There was a valid reason why it was delayed so the fact that it has gotten started again is a good and happy thing. But it isn't sad that it was delayed by covid. What is sad is that there was Covid19.

You must be real fun at parties.

Know what is by far even sadder? Over 3,000,000 people dead from Covid. For me it makes it hard to be overly concerned about a roller coaster.

Certainly is.

Confession time from a hardcore 'old school' WEDhead - I once purposely booked a coast to coast flight stopover at Houston JUST so I could ride their WEDway Peoplemover. Best two hour layover....ever. No regrets. -

What a sad sight. Had covid not happened Tron could have looked very different right now.

I'm not sure I've ever used the underground trams. I'm sure I have once or twice, but I usually just walk between the terminals -- it's especially nice when coming back from a flight to stretch your legs.

Ended up riding twice. First time about 15 mins second time right before close under 10. Rode once at dusk and once at night and it was perfect. We stopped for ~10 mins during first run. Clean second run lol Got a nice shot of tron where we were stopped though.

That’s why it’s always a must when I attend a holiday party.
