Yes.  No change, except that the 1st drop is smooth.
Everything else is the same...

I rode the GIANT last weekend for the first time.  It was great!
Question:  Has it ever run  without that brake that the ride-op applies?  Would
it make a big difference?

I have always thought the following drop would be ***ously wonderful without
the mid-course brake! Has ANYONE ever ridden it without?

I have been lucky enough to have rode the TX Giant brakeless. It is truly a
great ride.

The difference is minimal. That point of the ride
sits 95 feet up, and the train curves into it. The
train has already lost a lot of momentum by
that point.
