"You may notice in the picture, that Neil seems to have a death grip on the lap bar.
My little brother is sitting next to him and later said that Neil didn't actually get his hands into the air until the breaking run at the end of the ride!
While I have a great deal of respect for Mr. Harris and his work, my family and I feel that this is a major blow to his credibility as a coaster enthusiast.
I will admit that this shot was taken quite a while ago and Mr. Harris seems to have become more experienced with roller coasters in recent years.
However, I remain skeptical. Sorry Neil."
He wrote back a few hours later and said:
"Just heard from Neil. He says that he was testing the aerodynamic properties of his new goggles. Having his arms up would have ruined the airflow and therefore the experiment. Guess I can't argue with that."
Well done, Mr. Clown.
