does anyone know what the capacity for this ride will be? From the pics it looks like only room enough for 14 on each train. Could be a problem.

They hold 28 people. 4 per car with 7 cars. Hopefully they will 3 trains for at least the first year of operation.

I believe it's 28, 7 cars of 4, 2 people each side of track.

Well, 28 per train is pretty good. The restraints, although totally new designs, do not look all that difficult to get into/out of. If the rumors of seperate laod/unload stations is true, then this thing should really crank people through. Especially considering that the train really flys through the (somewhat short) course! (although 3,600' is hardly "short" for a looper)

The restraints are easy to deal with. I sat in one at IAAPA last fall. They're actually a lot more comfortable than I expected.

The ride is fairly short and having unload and load stations I think they'll be able to crank people through provided they have adequate people on the platform.

Remember that there is more to the ride then just the part after the lift. :)

They're actually not uncomfortable.. the padding, however, is a bit too hard around the head.

The excitement that builds up while you wait in line; the thumping in your chest as you take a seat and depart the station; the terror as you travel up the lift backwards. All that my friend, is part of the ride.
