Does it look like the cars will hold tall, big guys??? :D

It does look like a good car design to accommodate people of almost any size (that are tall enough of course). Do we know the height requirement for this ride yet?

The cars look as good as promised. I love the restraints. Looks more or less similar to Monster at Adventureland, which is nice as long as you don't have anything in your front pockets.

I think the vast majority will have no problems, but like with Outlaw Run and most newer coasters it will be a squeeze for those that are bigger in the middle. Just more incentive to get healthy I guess. Lots of time between now and march to get there.

Those cars look very awesome, looks like an incredible amount of detail in the theming there. Looking forward to seeing those trains and the entire theme next year. I really like that they're giving us something in the restraint to grab and hold onto with our hands, if we so desire. 

I wish SDC would have, or could in the future, give us a handhold of some type on Outlaw Run to ease the jarring some.  With OR, my wife and I currently use the slotted rails of the lap restraint on both sides of our knees to hold onto, and it helps quite a bit, along with only riding towards the front.  I used to use the lip of the seat in front of me to hang on, but grasping the rails of my own restraint works better.

As extravagant as those cars look for Time Traveler I'm a little puzzled about the modest and pretty much bland look and current color of the station for this new ride.  I'm sure the inside of the station will be themed heavily and well done as always by SDC, but I'm sort of hoping the outside makes a transformation of some kind over the off season. Maybe it will all come together by next March, and the whole thing will be just excellent.

The cars look excellent.  With this much detailing on them, it gives me confidence that there is going to be a lot of detail and theming added to the queue, station, and maybe the rest of the ride as well.

I also like that they have a hand grip.  As I get older I don't necessarily want to hold on, but it is nice to have a place to rest my hands during a ride.

As for being able to accommodate "larger" riders, as Swoosh said, Brad isn't a short, tiny guy.  :-)  I think this will be as accommodating as a coaster can be today.

Really looking forward to this next year!
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Train cars look awesome as far as theming goes. Got that Steampunk look.
