I saw the photos I think those headrests are very ugly and uncomfortable. Couldn't they placed a more better looking one on.

Sawblade - those are the exact same ones found on the other new generation Intamin AG steel coasters such as Superman Ride of Steel and Millennium Force. Eat that.

why is the 4th row right side headrest so akward? is it for tall people or something?

or is it to simulate a tall person for a pull through.

I love those standard Intamin trains and the 50's car look is very cool. Love those tail fins. Good job KBF.

Here's a quote from Knotts.com:

...yellow and orange flame-emblazoned, candy-apple red or purple fin-tailed hot rods.

As well as:

...with a capacity of 20 people per train

Now those pics don't look like there's 20 in a train, more like 12. Why do I think this train is there for pull through purposes?

The 4th row headrest is just nothing special. It looks taller because of the stadium seating of the trains and the angle the picture was taken from. Other than the outer shells of the coaches and braking system, these trains are pretty much the same as MF.

Hey ShiveringTim, I'm pretty sure that something is different about the one headrest. It's not the angle of the picture and the stadium seating, there is an extension of the headrest quite evident on the final picture along with a quote from the person who took the picture pointing out such. Wonder what it's for?

I agree Incidentalist. Also that looks like the full train to me. Look at the last car. There is a fin type thing that looks like the end of the train

I seriously doubt this is the complete train. If it is, then the capacity just got cut nearly in half.

The trains are not one single unit in this pic, actually 3 cars, thus an extra car or two could be added. Perhaps for testing purposes, this shortened train was necessary.

Unless theyre gonna add another middle car to that train...It looks pretty complete. In the last picture its clear that the first car is the actual first car and the last is the actual last due to the fins. Not too worried tho, I still believe due to the lack of a lift and such a short run lines'll still move d at a decent clip.

Whoops! Now I see the head rest extension. So much for the open sight lines in these Intamin trains :)

I imagine it would be easier for them to do the pull though with just three cars instead of all five cars. I'm pretty sure that they'll add the other two when they begin testing, or maybe not....who knows?
