I'm pretty sure the banister is a requirement of the MF trains. For safety reasons and I'm sure somewhat for aesthetics.

Yeah those Wild Mouse coasters are great aren't they! :lmao:

This is a pleasant ad-on to Cheetah Hunt. I am likely not going to get on this till Cheetah Hunt opens though. Hopefully I can get short line as everybody will be at Cheetah Hunt.

Was at the park today. Snapped a few pics of the trains testing....Sorry for the quality. But YES they will have the "grille" on the front of the trains.

I was also at the park today. I got these two pictures of the grille on the train. I must say they really look great.
