Only semi-useful for tram line…

Basically the only thing this was useful for is getting in the virtual tram line, but even then there were no notifications (which I enabled) and we almost missed it. AND twice when I checked to see how long until boarding it told me (after we had waited 45 minutes) that our spot had been cancelled so we panicked and went all the way to the tram area where we were told to just “restart the app” like this happens all the time. Pretty incredible they can put a man on the moon, yet have such a poor app. Nothing else about this app worked the entire time we were there.

Didn’t work as specified

Made tram reservations for 6 per directions. Was informed by app it would be approximate hour wait. Then received notice that reservation had been cancelled. Seriously??? So tried to make another reservation and had NO service on my phone! After several attempts I was able to make ANOTHER reservation and had over 2 hour wait this time. Then, I received ANOTHER notification that the 2nd reservation was cancelled!! This time I took it to the customer service desk and was told by employees that the app is always doing that if they have a lot of people trying to use it at the same time and just had to wait in line for our number to be called and it would be okay. They can send a man to the moon, but they do not have service throughout the building and can’t build a decent reservation app!! I will be deleting this app and hope if I ever have to download it again, they have vastly improve it. At least we had a great time at the space center.

Horrible App

We downloaded this because we had to in order to ride the tram while visiting SCH last week. This app is ridiculous. It said there was a 50 minute wait, and 20 minutes later said a 40 minute wait still. Five minutes passed and it decided we missed our tour and would not let me sign up for another. My daughter downloaded the app, same thing. Except when hers said we missed it, we were told by workers there that there were two trams in front of ours still. The app crashed on more than one occasion, in addition. It’s a piece of crap for something that is literally at a place that employees rocket scientists. Honestly ruined a bit part of the day for us. Don’t download this app unless you are looking for something to stress you out.
