I've gotta agree that it might not have been the operators fault that the ECV hit the stove. My mother used one on our last visit to the park and when she would start to move forward the darn thing would suddenly shift into reverse. She'd have to hit the brakes and try again. It's possible this persons vehicle was being stupid and not the person herself. As for the stove, it'll be interesting to see if they choose to fix it and put it back, which I'm sure they can, or decide to fill the space with more merchandise. My vote would be for them to put it back but only because I like those added touches that transport the guests to another time.
