Faithful followers and friendly folks who are just browsing thisfloridalife, lend me your opinions. I crave your input.
Last night my husband and I popped into Universal Studios. We had a great evening as the excitement of being new passholders has not yet worn off. After enjoying the Cinematic Spectacular, and a spin on MIB it was nearly park closing time as we headed for the entrance.
And then something happened that goes against the theme park dogma that I have been taught for years. Three team members in safety vests asked that we get onto the sidewalk because a truck was pulling out into the park. The “backstage” access gate opened and a fairly large delivery truck pulled “onstage” out into the theme park.
Forgive the poor quality of the pics below, as I did not have my camera with me and my phone barely qualifies as “smart”.
Now this is where you come in….. is this occurrence such a weird thing?
My perspective is a little unique. I grew up going to theme parks. I have worked in five out of the seven Orlando theme parks and was taught this was a big no-no. Granted we were safe, the team members did a great job keeping guests away from the truck. I have never seen this happen when parks guests are still present.
I am just really curious to find out if others would be as shocked as myself if they experienced the same thing. Please share your thoughts in the comments, even a simple “yes” to indicated that you would be shocked or “no” this would not be a big deal to you, will do.
Thank you for your time and opinions.
