Yes, the gondolas rumble and vibrate going over the support posts.The overhead guides, bumps. It's mildly bumpy going on and off the guides at the stations, and there are some bumps when going over the wheels are the posts, but when just soaring along on the wire, super smooth.
Joel’s timing is certainly consistent with our experience over more than 20 years of stays at BWV and associated rides on the Friendship boats. We usually plan on a maximum of 15 to 20 minute wait between boats if we just missed a boat when we arrive at the dock to board. Fifteen minutes between boats when there are 4 boats running and 20 minutes between when only 3 are running. The last couple of years, it seems like the 15 minute timing is most common.I've timed it at 25 minutes in the afternoon. I think that's fairly typical.
It would take longer when there are more people getting off and on at each stop, but 75 minutes doesn't sound right.

At all the stations except Riviera, you have about 90 seconds to drive on, which is plenty of time even for inexperienced drivers. Backing out is a bit more daunting, but the cm will guide you. Just take it slow. When the cabin is ready to depart the unload or load position, the cm needs to hold in a button on their podium to release it, so there's no chance of it taking off before you're safely in or out.Is it easy to enter and exit the Skyliner with an ECV in your party?
