Skycycle in Japan: pedal-powered roller coaster

I love roller coasters. I think one of my favorites is the Hulk coaster at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando. It’s just awesome in its powerful brutality. Probably somewhere on the opposite end of the spectrum, though, is this “skycycle” in Japan, a pedal-powered roller coaster. The only frustrating thing about this is that this page shows you the track…but what’s the ride like? I mean, granted, a loop-the-loop is no doubt out of the question, but it’s hard to believe nobody’s recorded their trek on it for posterity. Somebody did the Haunted Mansion when it was stuck, somebody even recorded this thing. I would hope somebody over in Japan would get on that. And if you do, please send me a link.
