Good morning, fellow WOE Friends,
We are almost done with the work week.
The Old Man is now online as a complete Short Story. Find out what happens with Alex and his Uncle Joey.
There will be a new WOE Short Story on Monday, called Drugs Can Kill.
HR released another picture called Gossiping. I included it on the bottom of the post.
Since this Blog is supposed to be about all things WOE and my travels, I'd like to start telling you more about the WOE Complex: Attractions, rides, Complex Sections, Transportation, Etc.
So each Friday, I'll give you detailed information on a particular part of the WOE Complex or property.
On Monday's, I'll give you more detailed information on expansion of the WOE, as well as talks with Steven C.
Wednesday's, we'll continue with my interviews, which will become less about those who are running a department and more of individual employees or guests and their experiences.
If I travel, I will include pictures and my opinion, for whatever that is worth.
So today, I would like to start with a form of transportation at the WOE Complex that is very unique. They are called Shuttle Pods. Here you go.
Shuttle Pods, which look like glass cylinders, can hold about six people and lift-up and down, like an elevator. Except, once they hit the top and are above all the buildings, they then slide along on a cable system to go from place to place around the Complex. They can be a little unsettling at first because once they go up and connect to the cables, they will slightly sway, especially when they first start moving. But they offer magnificent views, are fun and provide quick access to anywhere in the Complex.
The Shuttle Pods are accessed through Jump Stations. There are ten Jump Stations around the Complex and Harmony Theater. Each Jump Station has six bays that allow for loading and unloading. Each Station can hold up to 12 Shuttle Pods each. There are two separate shafts for each station that provides for extra Pods to be loaded behind the bays. Once one Pod leaves, another takes its place. To operate, you just push the desired destination button and wait for the Shuttle Pod that will be bringing you there, which will light up, indicating your destination. As an elevator only has up and down buttons on the outside, the Shuttle Pod has all ten locations available.
Each Shuttle Pod is lit in neon colors. When you look up, you see these glass, neon-colored tubes zipping around the Complex. Guests have fun just riding them. Plus, it cuts down on walking. After all, you are on vacation.
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
