Never said it was going to be 4 across... It was going to be an additional 2 trains for a total of four more guests per ride, but not four across.

No Intamin manufactured coaster has rollercoaster trains with 4-across. That's only B&M (well, Arrow with their Fourth Dimension, and Vekoma is starting to get into it as well with their Flying Dutchman and such....).

Incorrect. The cars will have 4 seats, arranged in two rows.

Not to mention 7-Up (or whatever cola it's named after now) Shockwave in Drayton Manor.  That is an Intamin Stand-Up coaster with four across.

And the WT trains sure do look nice!

I looked it up at Cedarpoint.com and it says Wicked Twisters vehicles will be:

Eight four-passenger coaches ; One 32-passenger train

What does that mean? four across?

no, it means two rows of two.  the same as traditional Arrow and Vekoma as well as all woodie trains.  one car, four seats, two rows.

I went back to Cedarpoint.com and it also says:

The train consists of 8 vehicles carrying 4 passengers each, 2 persons side by side for a total of 32 persons

so nevermind

I don't care if there are 4,985 seats. This is newsworthy (with the correct # of seats, of course!). Submit it. Man, those seats are gorgeous!
