I'd actually say Corkscrew at Cedar Point, since there is so much headbanging on that ride, it hurts. But it depends on the type of lap bars and all that, of course. I haven't been on Top Gun, but I think the Iron Dragon is fine -- OTSRs just seem to go with suspended coasters, just something about the feel of the ride, I guess. Just my opinion! :)
I know it's probably not possible, but Vekoma SLC's could use some kind of different restraint system. A little headbanging usually doesn't bother me, but I have trouble enjoying SLC's because it can be so bad. You've gotta love seeing everybody's red ears after a ride on Serial Thriller ;).
I don't know why Vekoma doesn't use the flying dutchman restraints on their slc's. Well they would have to modify it a bit but they eliminate headbanging. It could be done and it would save slc's. Serial Thriller is exciting, but like ACE Boilermaker said it is hard for one to enjoy it because of all the pain involved. My on-ride photo last time was great because I was making a face of pain- I had just hit my head real hard going into the dive.

CoasterFanMatt, I share your ideas about Revolution & CA' Screamin'! They would both be tons better without OTSR's, but CA law states that all coasters that go upside-down must have OTSR's, I believe. But for some reason, they run Monte w/lapbars, unless they changed even that!

There is a reason that any ride with a corkscrew, or a corkscrew type element has "horsecollar" restraints. You know that floating feeling on the corkscrew, the one that makes you feel like you are going to fall out? Yeah, the otsr's are what keep you from falling out. They also keep you from slamming into your neighbor. I have heard how bad Revolution is with OTSR, and it seems a little rediculous being that it was the first travelable looping coaster. We have the Mindbender at SFOG, a double looping Schwartzkopf(R.I.P.) coaster and we have lap bars. Boy is it great. Could someone tell me why they put OTSR on Revolution? Thanks.
