It's hard to be on any kind of resort/theme park vacation and not feel totally nickle and dimed but this Universal Studios hotel has chipped their paper soda fountain cups and a clock starts on the first fill and you have two hours before you are denied soda by a robot voice.— Daniel Danger (@tinymediaempire) March 5, 2019
Is rampant soda theft so much a problem that they needed to introduce rifd chips into fountain sodas? Oh and filling a cup, taking a drink and filling it again? Nope. You have to wait 2 minutes.— Daniel Danger (@tinymediaempire) March 5, 2019
