I'll use the same Right Side Up (RSU) and Up Side Down (USD) terms for the train, but I'll try a different notation for the rotation of the seats: 0 - 540 degrees. 0 is when the rails are closest to the running rails, or at the tip of the track, and 540 is as low as I believe they go on X, which is 1½ turns from the 0 position. The seat rotations are approximate, I have no idea what the exact angles are, but that should give you a pretty good idea what is happening.
X's Layout (based on my own experience)
Train leaves station: Train RSU, seats ~135 (recliner-like position).
Train climbs lift hill: Train RSU, seats ~135 (now upright, due to lift hill incline).
Train goes over first drop: Train RSU (vertical), seats flip forward to 360 (facing forward, and down).
Train reaches bottom of hill: Train RSU, seats continue forward to 540 (upright, facing backwards).
Inside Raven Turn: Train now USD, seats rotate gradually to 360 (upright, facing forward).
Full Backflip: Train USD, seats rotate to 0 (still upright, facing forward).
Big Curve: Train USD, seats 0 (no change).
Half Half: Train now RSU, seats rotate to 180 (upright, now facing backward).
Outside Raven Turn: Train now USD, seats rotate to 360 (upright, facing forward).
Half Half: Train now RSU, seats rotate to 180 (upright, facing backward).
Brake Run: Train still RSU, seats return to recliner position of about 135.
I've bolded the differences on Eejanaika. The last 3 elements on Eejanaika after the first Half Half I am just guessing they are the same as X. Comments/Corrections are welcome!
Wow, i love X and i'd never be able to come up with that how do you even know what's going on??
