    Why non-DLine chair and non-DLine towers?

      D-line refers to the grips and terminals, nothing else that I’m aware of (unless things have changed lately). There are differences between the North American towers and European models, and between the EJ (taco) and suspension carriers, but those can be had with a standard Uni terminal as well.

      It has the “D-Line” chairs which are just the European chairs it just doesn’t have the bubbles and heated seats.

    The paint scheme is kind of ugly the green with green isn’t the best… I feel like if they went with a darker green it would look better. Though the one thing I do like is all the glass it keeps it modern but also kind of makes it blend into its surroundings too.

      Existing lifts:
      – The whole Skyliner system at Disney World

      New ones coming online this year:
      – The two other Boyne 8-packs coming online this year (Disciples and Jordan Bowl)
      – A new six-pack in Pennsylvania at Camelback
      – Wild Blue Gondola at Steamboat

      I might have missed a few. There are a bunch of Poma DirectDrive lifts at this point too.

    Wow… what a beautiful lift! I may be hated for saying this, but I really love that green color.
