Spotting the Escalator is not to bad because there are very few things that can go wrong and I have tried them all
Now as for the Gate, that is a whole different story. I have done it and spotted it and it is still one that I cringe when I need to spot it. It is so easy for a driver to think they are OK and keep going on the lower section that they keep going, next thing they roll. Then there is the top section that is nearly the same way but to the other side.
Some great spotters to that section from are Gary W and Robbie, they know within inches of where to put your tires. I am closer to 6-8"
of where to put the tires. Good luck and hopefully somebody will be able to help, wish I was going
