I like the trains for Steel Curtain! They're really committed to that Steelers theme, but more than that, the restraints look minimal and open for such a massive looper. I think they look more appealing than both the Dodonpa/Gale Force and four-across thrust air coaster restraints.

I'm not wild about inversion-heavy coasters anymore, but I want this to be a solid ride for the park. The trains give me confidence. :cool:

Hopefully those shin bars will be tall person friendly. Hard to tell just from the image, but cool trains!

Those seats and restraints kind of remind me of Dodonpa 1.0's a bit. Interesting to see them on a multi-looping coaster given Dodonpa had to get OTSRs for its new loop...

Also, that Whitewater Fusion incline bowl/loop looks awesome.

I'm a die-hard Pats fan, but even I have to admit those Steelers themed trains look amazing. Though I'm most excited for the lap bar only trains.
