There's a crossover between the station and the lifts.  It is not mobius.

But is there a crossover again, somewhere throughout the circuit?

Oh, MANY... they duel at 4 points and race at several others.  They're
constantly crossing. :)  However, the crossover after the station explains why
the train starts on one side on the lift, and ends on the other side in the
station.

A copy of the ground plan has been posted on
http://www.rollercoasterworld.com/

The ride has two separate tracks, which cross over at the turn between the
station and the lifts.

        Thanks for the URL.  The site was really busy when I checked it out,
but the little that I did see - WOW!  It looks like quite a fun ride!
