I'm not familiar with that. How does that work?

He just means that effect x is triggered so many seconds after a car leaves the station and effect y is triggered so many seconds after that, and so on. So it isn't running over a switch or anything to trigger the effects. I still would guess they were having problems with the horn/lights/door all triggering at the same time, because as I saw today, the lights/horn basically don't go off until after you go through the first exit door.

Thank you...Interesting though I would think that system would cause allot of problems. I would think that there are small differences in the speed the cars travel through the ride because of carrying a heavier load ect. I would think triggers along the ride would be far more reliable.

It seemed to me the timing was off later last season with the horn, and it's gotten worse? I hope there are plans to change the gags to physical switches (Proximity, Limit, Infrared, etc.) in the Future.
