As most of us know, the World Of Wonder garage escalators between the Circle Center Mall and the convention center were non operational from both directions for this year..............and well, let's face it, one or both escalator directions were not working during the convention all these years.
This week, I drove back to Indianapolis for the Indiana State Fair.
I was walking from the Circle Center Mall towards the J.W. Marriott and the aforementioned escalators were still non functional.
When I reached inside the actual convention center, I saw a couple of workers maintaining their escalators. I asked who maintains the World of Wonder garage escalators, and they said they just picked up the contract.
Due to the previous contract with a different vendor, those World Of Wonder garage escalators were not as regularly maintained.
Going forward, the World Of Wonder garage escalators should be more reliable.
And now back to your regularly scheduled coffee break.
OK not trying to be a smart ass but when escalators stop running don't they just turn into stairs? I mean you can still walk up or down them
I always figured they would shutoff due to someone hitting the autoshutoff feature. With enough people going through there, there is bound to be one.
The first kind see escalators as ways to move without having to put in any effort yourself. These are the people who stand while on escalators.
The second kind see escalators as ways to move faster. These are the people who walk while on escalators.
A broken escalator will be no big deal for the second kind of person (because they'd be walking up them anyway, just in less time), but will be an inconvenience for the first kind of person.
