man that's a short ride. 20 seconds from launch to brakes, brakes gently slow you down in about 10 seconds. a short ride, but very intense.

Can someone explain to me why the things in the launch section move up and down? Are those the rollback brakes?

ACEerCG's avatar The things that move up and down are safety brakes. Their purpose is to stop the train if it doesn't launch fast enough to clear the first hill and rolls back.
