Yes, at first I thought they were just lap bars that come down over the top (sort of like Skyrush) but there does appear to be some kind of black vest on them. That's fine with me though. Maverick has similar restraints and that ride is a kick a** airtime machine with awesome inversions. They don't detract from the ride one bit.

Plus it's just a rendering. Things like that can easily change and often do.

All of their coasters have looked like batshit crazy NoLimits creations and this is no exception. Following the construction is going to be really fun.

Really, he described the ride experience is going to be "edgy"? :lol:

Thatsa what them young hips wanna hear. Should have called it Six Flag's edgiest coaster. Wait no that's superman. It lives on the edge.

Parks opening coasters that have less capacity than single train operations on a B&M just makes me shake with rage. But I also Six Flags is looking to go cheap, so that's what we're gonna get.

I think it will be a good ride so long as any OTSRs aren't too bulky. I also think in a park with Iron Rattler and Superman already present that I'd have preferred them go with a mid-size wood coaster from Gravity Group or GCI. But then they'd need to maintain it, so there's that.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Hopefully this ride will have a setup similar to Verboten and Cheetah Hunt where two trains load at once. If they have four total trains with two in the station, one on the tracks and one on the break run, I can see it working. Any less and this thing will be a nightmare to wait for. However, I will wait because this thing looks amazing!

Based on the super long brake run I would think this ride will have 3 trains. Whether or not Six Flags will actually run 3 trains on a daily basis after it's first season is yet to be determined. There's no reason for this ride to have more than 3 trains with no midcourse.

I would imagine that part of this ride's appeal to Six Flags is that since it only has one across trains so it would really only require 1 seat checker and 1 op at the panel, cutting down on labor costs since you wouldn't need to station someone on either side of the platform. No way in hell this has 2 load platforms. Six Flags isn't in the business of adding operating expenses unnecessarily.

Even with subpar ride ops I would think they could check and dispatch this train really quickly even with only 1 seat checker. There are only 8 seats on it.
