    ORGOCH: Just keep away from me with that dang bottle a meds!!! I don't need it!!

    ORWEN: Oh yes you do, old biddy. Now just relax while Orddu and I sit you down and open your mouth!

    Pretty scary. It said they had to climb out of the top hatch. For people with little ones and babies I am sure that must have been difficult.

    An unfortunate experience. Don't think they were ever in danger, even without power the monorail's not gonna tip over or anything. The tweet that's being quoted by someone being a bit overdramatic and "convinced that I'm going to die" is a bit much. :P

    I am 100% sure that the people inside where in no way in harm of the lighting bolt if it hit the train or a power surge in the track. The trains are well insulated so much to the point that it might got just a tad stuffy in the train if the power went out. Some people are a little over dramatic.

    I have to agree, just trying to get up there by yourself would be hard.

    Idk, I have pretty bad anxiety and I think would have probably started freaking out after a half an hour. Plus, no power means no AC on a packed monorail in the middle of July.

    However, once I would have realized that we were going to use the evac hatch, I would have been totally stoked! Think of how few people have ever used that thing! Historical!
