There is no better sound than that of a wooden rollercoaster climbing the first hill
Those dummies are a little different from the classic ride testing ballast dummies because they are equipped with articulated legs...that is to say, legs that have knee joints. The move away from shoulder restraints has made it necessary to come up with ballast dummies that are secured in the rides in the same way that real people are.
I assume that is the type of dummy being used on Phantom because apparently when the manufacturer was developing the dummy, the Phantom was one of the first rides it was tested on.
In fact, here's the page from the manufacturer's site.
