BTW, did you know that the airfoils on F1 & CART cars produce enough downforce at about 130mph or more to allow them to race upside down on the roofs of tunnels? :)
Also did you know that you can sneeze faster than MF? I read that people sneezing have had their expelled air timed at 100mph or so! :)
Seriously, I don't know what the G's are on the overbanked turns, but consider that the first one in particular is essentially a part of the pull-out from the first drop. That first turn is 169 feet tall, after a 300-foot drop. There hasn't been a ride I've had yet (well, save for a 10-lap marathon on media day) where my vision hasn't gone gooey up in that turn.
