Click on "major rides" and go to page 4. Its near the bottom named "brand new". Sorry, I could not link the direct page to you.

This looks crazy.

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing a couple of these on an episode of Real World/Road Rules Challenge. The contestants had to race eachother to the top. I remember them being exhausted when they were done so I would agree that its more of a workout than a ride.

I wonder what kind of restraint system it uses?

It looks like a crane with a bike attached to it.

Looks kind of like the bike in a loop that I tried at a museum with a travelling roller coaster science exhibit in Hawaii a few years ago except instead of going in a loop you pedal to make yourself go up and down.

As for restraint the loop bike, as I will call it, they had a harness that came down to your shoulders and kept you in the seat while your feet were strapped to the pedals.
