Once you get in the seat, you pull down the lap bar, buckle the seat, and wait. Once you dispatch, you'll turn and climb up the lift hill. If you happen to be sitting backwards, you'll feel funny as you climb up the lift hill. But once you crest the lift hill, it won't matter which way you decided to face as you'll be changing direction like there's no tomorrow. You'll go down the first drop spinning. As you go around all the turns, you'll have no idea whats going on.
