I could see Holidayworld getting something like this. *** Edited 10/4/2007 5:35:00 PM UTC by J7G3***
I think the industry is aware of the crappy experience most OTSR rides give....
I'm not sure if this type of lapbar only restraint would work on an SLC. The current SLC trains do not flow well through the elements. Every time I ride I seem to get tossed front to back as much as I do side to side. I'm afraid without any upper body support, and very little to hold on to, it would still be a rough ride. There may be clearance issues involved too if people are able to lean to the far left and right from the waist. I would like to see some type of soft over-the- shoulder harness on an SLC like Intamin used on the Zacspin coaster, or Vekoma has on their Flying Dutchman.

Edit: I believe that is on El Condor at Walibi World - the first SLC coaster. *** Edited 10/4/2007 7:27:22 PM UTC by halltd***
The non-looping cars just have the lapbar in addition to the very reclined seating position.
