Have you ever felt like you were being muffled on an Arrow looper?  I just realized this when I was reading a review about the Loch Ness Monster.  The guy said that the restraints come so far down on you, you can hardly see.  I'm not sure if he was exagerating cuz it doesn't seem realistic.  I think I sometimes feel that way though.  Thats what I like about B&M.  They give you room to reath.  What do you guys think?

1970's/80's technology vs 90's technology, there is the difference. At least I think ;)

I just hate the Arrow OTSRs because I can't scratch my nose if I get an itch there! The shape of the seats pins my arms in quite well. I hate it! I still love the ride, though. I've never been on a B&M sitdown, but if the restraints are like B&M inverted's, then I would prefer those over Arrow's anyday.

I just don't like that my temples are right in the "Banging Zone". But I know I'll grow out of it. I've never found Arrows to be cramped, it's just that the bucket seats are really low.

I think Arrow's are okay. On Deja Vu, you are really packed in. There is a sheet that goes across your chest. I am short and it was almost interfering with my view. I like Kong's OTSR's. You can't possible hurt yourself with those things. So soft, so soft...;)

I hate Arrow trains. I feel like I can't breathe. If I got stuck on one I know I would have a panic attack.

I also do not like the Arrow restraints on their older coasters.  The Demon at PGA is a perfect example.  The restraints come way down and during the ride they lock down even further on me.  It makes it so I can't move, period.  It's very uncomfortable.  When I ride Arrow's, I always make sure to push up on the restraints during the ride, so they don't come down on me and cut off my circulation.  :)

Would anyone care for some cheese? I don't care what I'm riding in as long as I'm secure. Those Raging Bullwinkle restraints are among my favorite, yet frighten me to death. That's about as free as they should get!

RAGING BULL'S restraints are the BEST!

So comfortable and so UNobtrusive!

They stay out of your way and let you sway, sway, sway!

Too bad some B&M's have the OTSR's (Batman Knight Flight)....I say "Loop with nuthun' but a seatbelt!"

Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

SOB's train are really confining, and it has lapbars!lol! Anyways, I dont feel as confined on them as I do in the chaos cars. Althougth there is no headbanging, I think the B&M OTSR could be little less bulky. Its a bit hard to see anything at all when you sitting in one of the two middle seats. On the other hand, I actually like arrow's cars (besides the headbanging), its a lot easier to see everything.

Yeah apollo;s chariot and raging bull have the same restains I belive. and yeah they;re awesome! on AC makes you think loose just a tiny bit. not a whole lot loose liek I did and rise about 4 cm out of the seats and feel liek you;re slide out! I wasent in any danger but it scared me good and when the came down at the bottom of the first hill the momentum of me going down and the la ba following stapled me. but yeah those restains are amazing and made sure to be tight I think they would on a sit down looper.

Tocci55, thanks, but I seem to detect sarcasm! Spent a long time on that damn thing. Now THAT'S claustrophobic! Anyways.......

Have you been on any Schwarzkopfs? They're even closer to your "Loop with nuthun' but a seatbelt". Those shuttles are the best.

Sarcasm? Not at all!
I love SW uniforms.
Once, near Halloween, I saw two guys come into POLYESTERS (a theme nightclub) in perfect Stormtrooper outfits.....what was wild was that there were two heavily armed, flack-jacket wearing cops in there that night (I don't know why)....but the Stormtroopers looked TWICE AS SCARY!
Man, those two guys got ALL the chicks that night!
