A few years after the track was built, reducing brakes were installed at the apex of the first hill and the rails at the bottom and the first half of the curve were swapped to reduce roughness. The photo point and photo shop have also been removed. The photo shop has been replaced by a food stand.
Excalibur has two trains with five cars each. Six people (three rows of two people) can be seated in each car.
