Run For The Border, 1983

So we step out of the TARDIS and it’s 1983. And it’s EPCOT, so let’s ride something.

It shouldn’t be a problem, of course. After all, as we all know, EPCOT was super unpopular because it was so boring and dull, with no thrills and it made children cry and no one ever, ever came.

    So… that makes perfect sense.

    There’s no – repeat, absolutely no – possibility that the foliage threw me off and I didn’t notice. Nope. Not a chance.
