I think it is the student tunnel and the same sled. Tunnel is still there I think they are just using it to test the electric sled system for Boring. He went on a tweet storm about this today.

this post contains spoilers for the play "Waiting For Godot"
<Snicker> The title of the play is a spoiler for "Waiting for Godot". Not to mention a complete synopsis.

And despite the name, The Boring Company seems more interesting.

Thank you kindly.

p.s. Sorry about the Eng Lit flashback.

It's going to have to go a lot deeper than that.
Note the brand new footbridge in the background.
Note there are new tunnel sections fresh on the flatbed. Seems they really are continuing to dig. Does anyone know how far it is from this point to the end of their property line?

It's too bad they didn't post or allow any video of the actual rides in the tunnels.
Be sure to watch CBS's ride though, and you'll see why. Right now it's insanely bumpy.

Not sure if it was edited in, but I laughed out loud when all of those collision warnings went off! Might need to add a "Tunnel" setting.

I watched Dærik’s video and it looks like they didn’t end up giving rides.

I thought Elon reacted beautifully at that moment when he said they will be switching to the human driver now...
