    Did you go on any of the slides this lift services?

      I’m pretty sure he had to, there’s no downloading on this lift.

    This lift appears to be the lift that the sky ride in the game planet coaster is based off of. Albeit the way the lift functions is far from accurate but the drive return and towers in that game are identical

    I wonder if the cabin is ever removed when it is not needed.
