coasterfreak101 Posted September 1, 2015 Share Posted September 1, 2015 I think I "get" how this thing is supposed to work but I'm curious if there's going to be some kind of emergency safety brake somewhere in the ride course in case the swith track section doesn't transitino properly during the ride cycle. Just think about it: when the train is in the station, the switch track can be aligned with the ride course. The train leaves, goes up the lift, down the drop, across the switch, through the course, up the spike, through the course in reverse, then backwards through the switch. Brakes slow it down but it rolls up the first drop a bit, then hits the same brakes moving forward. The switch (at the end of the straightaway) aligns with the station once the train is stopped behind it, the train moves forward, then the switch moves back in line with the straight track as the next train loads. The only speculative part of that is the train rolling up the drop a bit before coming to a full stop. The brakes could potentially stop the train immediately after crossing the switch, but this way seems more comfortable! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
