    On California Screamin':

    1. When you pull the shoulder harness down, leave it one or two notches loose...I promise you won't fly out!

    2. Just before you go into the loop, push your head against the head rest while tipping your head up, slightly arching your upper back. Look up (well down for part of the way-your goal is to see the ground when you are at the top of the loop) and feel the joy!

    I'm pretty sure you'll find your answer if you go back and read the beginning of this thread.

    I remember the first time I heard of this, I thought, "What's the big deal?" Then we did it, and OMG. We were like woooooooooaaaaaaah. Cool stuff.

    On the last 3 bumps at the end of the ride is cool stuff too. If you leave the harness loose, and you put your feet up, you get like 12 or so inches of air in your seat.

    I've known about the "goat trick" since I was rather young, though never heard it called that until about 8 minutes ago when I discovered this thread.

    Being an astrophysics major myself, I love the physics of the trick. It's a fun one to analyze and realize what's going on as you whip through that turn. But as was stated, it's more of a sensory trick than anything physicsy. Great sensation if you are not prone to motion sickness.

    Any ride with a really tight turn that goes through any sort of high acceleration turn can give you the same feeling as long as you pick a stationary point and can continue to look at it (that's the hard part as most rides don't have something as obvious and easy to pin point as the goat. The goat also happens to be fairly near the center of the turn making it great to focus on as it doesn't shift a lot.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Along the lines of tricks to do on other rides, my wife likes to ride the Mali-Boooomer while sticking her arms and legs straight out. Extra fun can apparantly be had if one looks straight up during the ride sequence. Personally, I avoid this ride and choose to remain safely on the ground.

    Hehehe... I'm not the only one! Not that I'm an astrophysics major but that I analyze stuff going on around me.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    I asked for the backmost seat on BTMRR today and had to wait about 5 minutes longer (1 train cycle) to get on. I had to see (feel) what this goat trick is all about.

    You look at the goat while going down & turning & accelerating at the same time. It was cool. I felt like my head and stomach were about to fly off (out?). It probably has to do with the inner-ear balance mechanisms, but I am neither a doctor or astrophysicist so I am just blowing smoke here.


    Botton line: GOAT TRICK ROCKS!
