[QUOTE=Soundgod;1097947]I really dislike having one lap bar restraint for an entire row.
If you’re the “girthiest” rider, then nobody else will be able to get the bar down to hold them and Lord forbid you’re in the car with a genuine wide load passenger and that lap bar doesn’t even come close to holding you and you’re going to be sliding all over the place.
This is a problem common to Spiderman over at Universal as well as several other mine train coasters.
Come to think of it, I seem to remember that ToT originally had one big lap bar instead of individual lap belts when it first opened.
It would be nice to have individual lap belts, but that would take a medium redesign/upgrade. It would also mean that you wouldn’t be able to get two kids and one adult or even one kid and two adults in the cars if you did. You’d be forced to limit it to two riders per row.[/QUOTE]
We like the one bar system. Pam uses it an excuse to sling shot into me around the turns. Gotta let the girl have some fun. But on the other hand…
Neither of us are plus size, but the one bar system was what made ToT for me. Watching poor Pam fly off her seat when the car went DOWN, DOWN, DOWN was OUTSTANDING to watch. And the screams were even beter. Now that there are belts she’s planted firmly in the seat. Takes some of my ToT fun away.:laugh:
