The cart must be positively attached to the rail. The rider must be strapped onto the cart. I wanna try!

I'm quite certain the signs say, "Keep hands and feet inside the ride at all times" it's either that or "Hold on you dumbas_!"

Woaahh Nelly, I could easily see a deer strike or a branch falling on the tracks. But too damn cool!

In the article I got this from, it explained that there is indeed a handbrake... but the guy doing the video wanted to experience the ride without using any braking.
I wonder if they've got things like this in the states? I'd drive up to VT or NH to try one.

Closest I've seen is the sleds on wheels that ride in a trough. Bromley in Vermont had one, and I believe Camelback here in Pennsylvania did, too. Not as fast as the rail video, but it was possible, if not easy, to go over the lip. Link.

Yeah... we have one of those trolley in a trough ones at Coffs Harbour. My brother managed to stack it... over the lip and got quite bruised up... then again, he stacked a Segway the other day and broke a couple of ribs

Cranmore has one too. (http://www.cranmore.com/winter/cranmore-mountain-coaster) I think so does Attitash.
