It was first used in the 1920's when the wooden twister coaster came into fashion. When GCI brought back the twister, they modernized that design to fit their coasters. It's a major contributor to the quality of those rides. The new trains on Voyage will make it better than it already is.

Maybe that is because I am comparing it to Worlds Of Fun's Timber Wolf which is so painful it should be banned. My guess is the new trains are more for minimizing the wear and tear on the track...
Regardless, it sounds like the best wooden coaster of all time is about to get even better!
