In short: It's a much smoother ride. I've got a detailed trip report on my site
The old one felt like it was going to fall apart with all that jerkiness. The updated trains, while still a little shaky at some turns, is much much more stable. I don't get headaches from the HUMAN side anymore.
Also, both sides seem to go on a more consistent speed - though this observation might be subjective. HUMAN used to slow down dramatically at a certain turn (above the Sci-Fi 'lake') before descending to that drop (photo op area). It breezes through that turn with minimal speed loss now. Same goes for Cylon's vertical loop. There used to be a little slowdown as the train goes upside down at the top of the loop - now, barely noticeable.
The new trains halved the ride's capacity, and using two trains for each track have caused many delays for the past week. Probably will be ironed out in the near future. The other good thing about the new seats is the VIEW. It's far easier to appreciate the whole dueling action while on-ride, because there's only one seat blocking your view on your left/right.
