Here's one of the Dips cars.  They only had 2 of the 8 cars operating this year because the other cars are still being restored.  You can clearly see the guide wheels on the side of the car.

Here's a car going up the lift.  The green vertical bars to the side are the anti rollback system.  Basically the car pushes them up and then they fall behind the car so that the car can't fall back down the hill.

Basically Leap the Dips layout is one big figure 8 with dips in the middle of each loop.  Here's the top dip.
