      Texas Skyway near Dallas. On my list of places to visit one of these years.

    This lift has a feature called “Comfort Mode” where the cabins stop completely for loading and unloading, but the lift stays moving. You can see it in my recording. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFpz9ABWBME&t=226s

    Also, this lift can only operate at 4 m/s due to the very short terminals (same as Sweetwater and Mt Rainier). During my recording the speed is about 3.1 m/s.

    This gondola has a ridiculous schedule. It is only open for small windows of time during the evening (prime casino time) on only a handful of days. It should really be open from ~7 pm to casino close every day of the week at least in the winter. It is very frustrating to wait for the shuttle, especially when there is a gondola sitting right there. I have also seen countless people walk up to the gondola to head to the casino, see it not running, and turn around and head back into the village.

      I’m not really sure why the schedule is the way it is. I think the shuttle makes more sense a lot of the time since it can pick up in more places than the gondola. When the hotel is built on the Soleil side, the lift will operate more.
