Did You Know Today’s TIGGERIFIC TUESDAY TRIVIA On what the PeopleMover and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster have in common??
If you guessed wait times, you are incorrect. The PeopleMover is propelled by a Linear Induction Motor (LIM) which is the same system used to propel the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster to 60 MPH. Though the PeopleMover never reaches a speed over 7 MPH, the linear motors use an electrical current to create an electromagnetic field. The PeopleMover vehicles have magnets on them and the interaction with the magnetic fields create propulsion and move the vehicles along the track. The system is great on the environment and also on repair costs as fewer parts break down due to friction.

Our Favorite Food This Week: Pizza Planet Cheese Pizza
Location: Pizza Planet (Hollywood Studios)
Price: $8.99 (includes pizza and Caesar salad)
Hungry for pizza at the Hollywood Studios, be sure to check out Pizza Planet. Even if you aren’t hungry stop in and play a few games, the claw game seems to get a lot of our money. Either way you will want to get a chocolate chip cookie for the road. The kids will have a blast, but the games can cause the indoor seating to get a bit loud so sitting upstairs is recommended.

Did You Know Today’s TIGGERIFIC TUESDAY TRIVIA About Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster?
We all know that each of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster limos go from 0 – 60 in 2.8 seconds and that there are 125 speakers and 24 subwoofers per limo, but did you know that they built the entire coaster then constructed the building around it. Yes, folks, it’s true, in this case the roller coaster came before the egg err I mean building.
But it is too bad you don’t get much time to experience the building as the ride only lasts 1 and a half minutes so be sure to look around.
