The coaster's station has parallel locations for loading and unloading. An electric motor slides this small segment of track from side to side, alternately linking the left or right platform track to the main ride. A similar switch track at the entrance to the station allows trains to go into either side of the station. When the coaster is operating with an odd number of trains on the ride, it is common to depart from one side of the station and arrive on the opposite side.
