Oh yeah, that's right...duh! *smacks head* But still, the area the train passes through does look very small from those angles. Of course it will be big enough to pass through (I hope;)), but it doesn't look like there will be a large margin for error.
By the way, does anyone know if there is going to be a maximum height limit? Also, the station looks like it won't have a dropping floor as on an invert, so will it just be like an Intamin impulse or what?

what if the restraints fail on X, i wonder how arrow made them as safe as possible. that would be scary flipping around and the restraints let loose, SCARY. Just adds to the fear of the ride, thats probably what the designers aimed at.
Yes, but not the whole time... as it enters the second element (the name of the element slips my mind), it is like an immelman, except at the top the track doesn't flip back over, the 4D trains just rotate around, and you are facing forwards right-side-up. It may be hard to picture now, but you will get it once you see it in action.
For anyone who has not seen this, there is a short video with some animation and some live prototype video of the trains and track with a test section on arrows home page http://www.arrowdynamics.com/rides.php?rtype=4th%20Dimension Worth seeing if you havent already. ------------- coaster freaks unite-conquer them all

What is your point? What if the restraint would fail on Goliath? Flashback? Revolution (thats a long shot!)? All the same, 99.99% chance of death. Why do people worry about what will happen if a restraint would fail on a new kind of coaster? This will happen: a bad thing.
