B&M Flyer Restraints

Saturday, March 29, 2003 6:13 PM
I've got a question about the restraints on the new B&M flyers. Has anyone had a problem fitting into these restraints? I'm asking this because of I want to go to the upcoming Costerbuzz Con, but I don't want to waste the money and time if I can't fit into the restraints of the new B&M flyer that the ERT will be on. I'm a rather big man with a big waste and large chest and have had problems fitting into other restraints, specifically on inverts such as Raptor and Wicked Twister at CP.

Um yes. With the help of some attendants (and squishing my rear as far back as possible) I was able to ride. Ive heard the general rule is if you cant buckle a BM inverted harness by yourself (I barely can) you cant fit on the first generation flyer restraints. However, I have heard the rumor that the restraints were redesigned for SFGAm but at least from what I have heard it is just a rumor, can anyone confirm this?

I don't know about Superman's restraints, but AIR has "large man" restraints. You don't need to buckle up yourself, you don't even need to be able to pull the lap bar down far enough so it clicks. There is a screw in the lap bar which can be used to completely secure the lap bar apart from the regular lap bar system so even the larger persons among us can ride. Don't know if SF uses the same system.

I saw something in SFOG's map that said "Superman with new larger seating." If they had to change it they will probably have it larger to begin with at SFGAdv and SFGAm.

B&M fllying restraignts are unique and can fit alomost any1.. as some1 said above AIR was made for praticaly any1 and i was siting next to a large man and he was pretty comfortable on the ride.

Please dont book the trip on the basis of what i just said just incase some1 disagrees and corrects me.

Before someone starts yelling at you, I'd highly suggest spelling out words instead of using "1" ;)

If you can fit in an Impulse seat, you can fit on anything. S:UF's seats were the best designed of any coaster I have ever rode.

So by the looks of it, my chances of fitting in the restraints are about 50/50, depending on if the "large man" restraints are installed or not.

On our S:UF they said they installed larger seats, but I've seen no major difference...

While we're gently nudging you in the right direction, you will want to a) read the TOS, b) follow the TOS including the part about limiting your sig to 3 lines.

Welcome to the buzz.

I just got back from SFOG today and rode UF, the seats are slightly larger than last years. The B&M flyer restraints can hold a fairly large person. My dad could not fit on Batman: The Ride but could fit on UF with room to spare. I don't know about the other S:UF's but the one at SFOG is that way.

Wasnt a story going on about Gary Story having problems fitting on S:UF so he had the big boy seats installed?

I know he is around 6ft 5 in. and is fairly large in general.

Any truth to this?

Although I understand your concern, I wouldn't miss the chance to visit SFGAm, especially for this event, based on the ability to ride one coaster. Yeah, it would suck if you can't fit, but it's still a great park with many other world class rides.

Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Deja Vu / Mr. Freeze (tie)

Exactly. "Here at Six Flags, we love to cater to our 'larger' guests. We make an effort to make sure even the largest of large guests feel they're comfortable."- when I called SFOT just out of curiosity just to see what they would say on this question.

You know all it takes is 30 minutes a day of just pushing yourself and you will get fit, really tis true.

But the restraints... on air i found i had heaps of room to move around in, and even though i aint fat, i got a huge chest and am over 6 foot, so it sohuldn't be too bad
