Feet Up –
I selected the rails from the Montu ride at Busch Gardens Tampa for this theme. These huge rails hold the thrill seekers as they catapult around a track that sends them into loops, dives and curves. No longer do you just sit in a seat with a simple lap bar. Current day coasters take many forms starting with the traditional seating but with shoulder harnesses and some that suspend the riders so their feet are free and others suspend the riders in a horizontal position (aka Superman position). The feeling of weightlessness is one I used to enjoy. I look upon these rides and miss those days, but these rides only give me headaches now so – the Thrill is Gone.
Notice the guy in the back seat in the last photo has his little camera and he is filming the ride.
