Just found this update on the site about Xcelerator. Has some good pics from www.twistedrails.com
and also if you scroll down you'll find a pretty informative and simple animation of how the hydraulic launch work. It's a german site so it's not in english. But you get pretty much the whole idea. So those who can't sleep at nights because of the hydraulic mystery take a look at http://www.coastersandmore.de/Rides/Xcel/xcelmain.shtml

If only the site was in English, we could refer those asking about the launch to this site....

Or if you want the website translated just copy the link and put it into google and the whole website can be translated into English. http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coastersandmore.de%2FRides%2FXcel%2Fxcelmain.shtml&langpair=de%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools
