^^Swings were too severe leading to frequent breakdowns.

What if the riders on the Bat were flung out so badly in the small turns? Some of them, I guess, could have got some kind of head bangs, plus they must have been blacked out when the intense g's coming on there.

I guess I would love to give a try making a wicked Bat coaster ride in that gaming, since I will find it so fun to build, taking a lot of time. : )

I got a great find, like the Bat actually pulled more than 5g's in the small turns were going to make a lot of giant swings, yes from what I have heard, it looked like that Arrow swinger pulled 5.2g's. I guess that's why the ride was pretty easy to fall into being 'out of order' so often. So much stress must have been on the swing machine ( what d'you call it like? Shock reducer is sort of a correct term? ), specially when the gondola went up more than 90+ degrees.
