Exercise 8: Ride simulator

Activity: Below is a ride simulator for you to test the timing and capacity of your ride layout from the previous exercise. Your goal is to fit in all of your track and scenes while hitting a capacity above 2000 people per hour. To do this you will need to select the appropriate
car capacity
and
dispatch interval
. Be sure to avoid multiple cars per scene (unless that is part of your ride design!)
Here is a short video which goes over all the features of the simulator:
