Airtime is experienced whenever rider are lifted out of their seat due to a change in direction. Because of the Restraints this a completely safe effect and rides are often designed to have as many airtime moments as possible. When talking about airtime, the terms ejector and floater are often used to further describe how the airtime you can expect feels like. Ejector airtime is a sudden lift out of the seat and usually just a short moment of airtime. Floater on the other hand is a longer, more sustained, most commonly over larger hills. While floater airtime usually has a more gradual lift out of the seat, there do exist some rides that have a ejector-floater combination in places.
