Is this ride comfortable? I mean the restraints and everthing. I was just wondering cuz you could maye use them on a stand-up inverted B&M. I know its been said before but wouldn't that e a cool feeling if you were standing up with your dangling? What do you peeps think?

I think most stand-ups are pretty tame. Standing up actually makes me feel safer than sitting. It's not scary, not even the first time. I'd be more inclined to ride a stand-up inverted.....now that sounds like fun!

Acro is basically a gyro-drop. I know the seats tilt forward, but it wasn't really tiled THAT much...I think like 15 degrees. Overall, I'd take PKI's Drop Zone if both had the same wait...it really is more like an inverted seat - the "standing gyro-drop" was more hype than reality....

A stand up inverted sounds like a woman's revenge for all the bad PMS jokes throughout the years...

"standing with feet-dangling" is an oxymoron. You don't really "stand-up" you just kind of sit in the seat, and when the seats tilt you are resting your chest on the restraint with your feet dangling. It's a really good ride, and I found it to be quite comfortable. Even when the brakes went on with my arms out, I didn't feel any..."discomfort."

My Acrophobia experience DID hurt, but that was just the braking... Actually, 80% of the fun for me was the trip up!
Also, if you're wondering about the possibility of stand-up floorless coasters, go on a stand up with the seat raised as high as you can get it... You'll find that it's quite uncomfortable on the legs, but the right ride layout could work well...

I have heard of both men and women experiencing discomfort on Acro... but I personally haven't had any trouble with it. However, since so many people have, I wouldn't be very surprised if the stand up "seats" were replaced with conventional seats during the off season.
