^Okay, I admit it, I really like it. When we heard of this, those who commented were afraid it'd look tacky. It does, but in a cool way. Definitely the most unique trains on a coaster in the world. Anyone else notice the saddle horn on the restraints? (Saddle horn is oval shaped and black, yeah just like you'd find on a horse saddle).

I'm pretty sure that's so you don't get back to the station with a broken arm. In other words.. a guard.
Ya, but what's the benefit of adding them on the trains? I can't think of any other coasters that have them. They may be necessary due to the proximity of the catwalks to the track during the overbanks? I just think they seem strange.
- Come visit me at Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT over at WDW, I would love to meet some more TPR members!
CD actually El Toro has stuff like that at GADV for during the "over bank turn" just without the plastic guards it is more a shoulder height or maybe a little lower guard. http://rcdb.com/3183.htm?p=25538 As Seen here.
