    They are becoming rarer because, in addition to being scary, they take a lot to operate.

    It requires 2 staff – one to operate it and one to stop people from trying to ride it. Once they put it in the wheelchair mode, the steps do one full rotation then stop. After getting on it moves slower than normal. So, it takes a long time, uses a few staff, and blocks the rest of the people trying to use it.

    I believe they are made by Hitachi but not sure.
