    Well IAAPA press conference tomorrow should provide some updates (and I'd wager the trains).

    Honestly I'm getting a feeling this will end up having some sort of vest OTSRs. We'll find out, but right now I'm kinda setting myself up for disappointment lol.

    Personally I think they are going to go for lap bars but have the comfort collars. My issue is they will make the cars quite ugly with a red yellow and blue color scheme like someone said, because Steelers.

    It's relative though, isn't it? 'Cos looking at the eyesore that is the coaster itself, the trains won't make it too much worse. :p

    FWIW I'd be shocked if the trains WEREN'T some combination of red blue and yellow, after all the Steelers Organization pretty clearly has quite a bit of sway with this coaster. I know that a few friends and I had mused at somepoint (if I remember correctly this was an @Antinos thought so credit were it's due) that with S&S and Vekoma fairly recently being owned by Sansei if S&S might have had some help with new train designs/vests taking some elements from Vekoma.

    You make a good point, @Youngster Joey, I wonder if these new trains will be some sort of Vekoma/S&S hybrid. If you'd have said that to me five years ago, I think I'd probably have retched, but seeing the new stuff from both of these companies actually makes it sounds half decent!

    I think the trains could be of a new design, I mean this is nothing like anything S&S has ever done before.

    Nope, I'm serious. Now that I know it has lap bars it definitely has potential.

    I mean to each their own but Copperhead Strike looks far superior to this and probably will be.

    Plus even though it will have OTSR's the Takabisha clone looks better to me as well.

    I (like possibly many others) was pleasantly surprised with the trains. Lap bars!!!! Something all of us can agree are good.
