No, it's not about the speed. It's about the excessive positive G forces that were being exerted on riders' legs and there were numerous complaints about this. The park reacted the season after its debut with a trim to help out the problem.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  It gives one an awesome feeling going through the inversions (that floating feeling).  One downside is that it hurts a little coming down the hill, not much though.  A good move by CP to do that.  Didn't they have trouble in tuning the brakes so that the train wouldn't stall?  I saw this happening one time I went early this year.

Wow, Cedar Point added, or at least contracted the addition of the trim? Usually B&M's come with trims installed wherever B&M thinks they might be needed. I imagine it is fairly difficult to add a trim to a B&M due to the track style.

The trims were off on all the coasters a few weeks ago cause it was a bit windy, and I had some of the best rides I've ever had...especially Mantis.

There wasn't even a 2 m.p.h. wind on Sat. the 20th and the trims were wide open. Unbelievably intense!
