    2 cars in each shaft. As one car is un/loading, the other car is going through the ride.

    I'm pretty sure that's how it works.

    You people are ruining it!

    One car journies into the Twlight Zone while the other is loading.

    Actually they weld together a new car after every ride. Once the elevator enters the Twilight Zone it's just easier to make a new one than try and bring it back from the zone...

    (kinda like the bowling alley on the simpsons. They make a new pin from a whole tree everytime one gets knocked down.)
