Do you prefer the old trains for roller coaster(restraint less) or the new train (dippers old one)

I prefer the new restraint trains as they make the ride faster.
What do you prefer?

The newer trains definitely feel faster and the airtime has improved. However, I've voted - purely nostalgically it has to be said - for the old trains.

Having no restraints/belts in them made them pretty unique in this day and age, and they were also my first real experience of a wooden coaster.

Sorry I went for the older trains..
Smooth as glass and less of a burden on the structure as the new trains are heavier..

Older, I preferred the open feel they gave, and they weren't half comfy! Although, I guess I could choose the new ones too, for the added speed and protection/safety..

New Trains for me

The new trains have given the ride a new lease of life and it performs way better offering a lot of airtime and lots of fun ;D
