stand-up/sit-down[edit]

I know it is a stand-up roller coaster, but the train is made so that if you sit on the seat (as opposed to straddling it), it lowers and is then a sit-down roller coaster. I know this for a fact, as I have ridden it. I think this should be added some how (to the article). 70.177.170.51 21:59, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

The harness system is designed to adjust based on the height of the rider. If a guest decides to sit fully down on the harness, as you suggest, they will be in for an extremely uncomfortable ride as the roller coaster was not designed to be ridden that way. Park employees are generally on the look-out for guests whose harnesses are at the lowest possible position, to make sure that either (a) the guest is actually standing instead of sitting or (b) the rider is tall enough to experience the attraction. Sitting down on this roller coaster is a mild case of rider error. --McDoobAU93 (talk) 21:33, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
