I was looking at the pictures of the trains on http://www.sw5live.com/ and can't quite figure out from the one small picture of the restraints how the riders will be positioned.  DOes anybody know?

It kind of looks like they may be inverted seats, but then the bottom of the seat will raise up so you will be prone...kind of the opposite of the Dutchman.

Please remember that the restraints have not been installed on the trains yet. That bar you see is the bar that the riders hold on to like all B&Ms have. The overall look of the train is impressive though.

Air is a new type of flying coaster like the ones Vekoma builds but only better because it's built by B&M
