I heard that X has a section of the station for loading and one for unloading, much like Volcano at PKD. I guess they'd need it to help ride capacity. Can anyone confirm/deny?

Based on the construction pics so far, it looks like just a single station section. Hard to say for sure though. ***Removed reference to erroneous deleted post -SWS

Does anyone know if the floor in the station will drop after loading like on inverts/floorlesses?

It shouldn't need to, they could just tilt the cars.

The staition wont drop. The seats are up hight like on S:UE so your feet dont touch the floor.

Don't all stations have areas to unload and load?

It would be logical that X would have a load/un load station because the train has cars on each side of the track. You have to enter on both side and exit on both sides of the train.

Todd: The answer is no. ApolloAndy is wondering about separate distinct areas where the train is emptied then rolls empty to the loading area. Most coasters are not like that.

Coaster Bob does have a good point. They almost have to have seperate station areas.

The most logical way to me is to have one station, it loads on boths sides but to unload it sends the people all the way back like it sends them to back row and farther and the take exit ramp at the very back of the station. So they just walk back to simplify it...TOGO_Fan

OMG how could you be a fan of TOGO????
I think they will use the system just like Volcano. The Loading/Unloading would be a pain if they didn't do this.

I think what might happen. maybe this is a little crazy but you might step up, get on, clip in and go. and then when you get off, you un-clip, step down, and proceed towards the exit. I know this sounds crazy but i just have this weir feeling. Who knows.

I think it will be a floor The is rolled up like a floorless so u can walk acrooss, but then again the train is supposed to be very wide, so two sides is the most likely way, we will se though in a month or two. , i mean think about u cant walk over the train its self.

I think the line will split up somewhere near the station and go under the station on one side and go up regular on the other.

Look at the station pics, it is 100% obvious that there will be separate ques for each side of the train. Waking across would be very difficult as the train is spread on both sides of the track!

From what I have gathered there will be an unload section and a load section. Riders will load from both sides of the station after the queue splits. As for the floor dropping/seats being high, the 3rd and 4th rails are missing from station track. This leads me to believe that the seats will recline before leaving the station with a mechanism that either raises or lowers a 3rd and 4th rail. I hope that makes sense.
