    Curious…this is at least the third time this has happened with the Skyliner (usually with broken glass). Does this happen at most gondolas and we simply don’t hear about it? And/or because of the Skyliner’s unique windows is broken glass is more frequent? Cast Member error? Design issue?

    I ask because this system had a number of detractors as it was being built claiming it was dangerous (these individuals were obviously not your typical visitors to ski resorts). Peter saw this first hand during his time on WDWMagic’s forums. The Skyliner should be a shining example of how perfect/safe this type of transport is. Instead, “accidents” like these make the news (due to it being at WDW) and don’t make the case for urban transport any easier for those not used to the systems. I’m just trying to understand if there is something unique about the Skyliner causing these incidents or if the megaphone is just amplified being at WDW.

    Given that Wildcat can be a windy location, why are they going with lighter weight chairs? I thought heavier was better? Or are they putting on more chairs?

      Odd that they are not replacing grips and hangers. My guess is new chairs will have slatted backrest for wind
