Orlando has a long way to go in its rail connectivity, even among the train-lovers of TikTok.

Jeddeo Paul, known as @jeddeo1 on TikTok, has more than 30,000 followers. He posts TikToks about his travel experiences —  specifically, riding trains — wherever he goes, with a dry wit and more than a little sarcasm. His first time riding our own SunRail did not disappoint (his audience, at least).

Jed said he was on a family trip visiting his grandma in the City Beautiful. He decided to embark on a SunRail adventure alone, as none of his family members found this journey appealing.

Paul wasn't familiar with Central Florida destinations, so he found an article  about fun SunRail stops. He chose the AdventHealth station because, according to the article, the station was a "cultural" experience. In the article's defense, it is walking distance from Loch Haven Park, home to art and science museums. Still, we wouldn't exactly call a hospital campus "fun."

The TikToker's reactions were hilarious as he approached the station. He found the medical campus anything but entertaining and walked away in search of the actual culture he'd hoped to find.

"At least if I get a heatstroke on this adventure, there's a nearby medical facility I can go to for care," Paul said.

He considered the Orlando Science Center but ended up leaving because of the $24 price of admission and the stigma around being a grown man alone in a children's museum.

When the TikToker saw the nearby Orlando Repertory Theater, he figured he'd finally found a hub of Orlando culture. Jed delivered a perfect deadpan as he revealed a poster for a live rendition of Disney's High School Musical 2.

His journey ended with an attempt to interpret the meaning behind the sculptures outside the Orlando Museum of Art. On his way back, he got drenched in rain as his train was delayed and turned into an hour-and-45-minute ride. But at least, as he mentions in the video, the rain helped him freshen up a bit. Remember, Orlando is the sweatiest city in the U.S.
