Blimey, itís only been open a week and thereís already been an incident with it? Another Dibber said the other day they were stuck on it for an hour and Iíve heard others say itís been stopped and closed for maintenance a couple of times. Thatís not good.

This is so scary!
Iíd decided to try the Skyliner from Pop to HS, even though Iíve got a fear of heights, but knowing this can happen is making me think again.

Is the Epcot line down now while they investigate?

🙁

I was ready to give it a go but this is too worrying. Why did it take 2 to 3 hours to evacuate? You would have thought Disney would have evacuation protocols in place. As someone said above, if it had been in full heat during daytime people would have died, for sure. Disney takes security very seriously, so this is pretty shocking. Imagine if something happens, they'd be sued by hundreds of guests... they could decide it's not worth the risk and close the system.

When we visited in the summer I said to hubby what happens if a power failure occurs or one gets stuck. He said it be ok Disney will have it sorted. Told him no-way you would get me on, youngest said it goes over water and Florida has alligators so not getting her on haha- no idea where this phobia of snakes and alligators has come from but it scares her. After reading this he actually said "you were right! and we won't go on it next time we visit".

We were going to give this a try in two weeks but I think Iíll wait until they iron out any issues... Iím really claustrophobic and the thought of being stuck in a pod , even for 15 minutes without it moving, makes me scared. Iím okay as long as things are moving but being stuck for 3 hours? Dear lord that would seriously freak me out and theyíd owe me a hell of a lot more than a $100 gift card 😳😳😳

I tried this out last Sunday when it first opened. It was great to try it but I did think it would be scary if it got stuck!

What surprises me is that the Skyliner has been ďrunningĒ for months now. There have been constant vlogs showing it running with multiple cars on it. When we were there in the two weeks before opening it seemed to running continually. Youíd think theyíd have had time to iron out any issues. Itís so typical that something like this happens once it opens to the public.

I wonder if different weather conditions or more weight in the cars impacts ...or maybe the tests weren't for continuous running.

They are vented (top vents and also behind/beneath the seats) and they have emergency water/cooling pads inside (if needed).

It may be uncomfortable and not particularly nice in the heat, but I think death is a bit OTT.

Disney could think about "I survived the Skyliner.." t-shirts as a spin off
