Looping Without OTSR's

Tuesday, April 3, 2001 5:54 PM
Why does that sound un-safe? Sure it's more comfortable and reduces head banging, but how can they compare to the safety of over the shoulder restraints? It just sounds like another way to slip out of the coaster. At first it sounded like an awesome idea, but I'm not sure. Convince me!! :)

I agree. If someone does slip out, OTSR's will be back on the ride before you know it & here to stay permanently.

What about 3,5 & 7 point (How many points are there? I forgot) harnesses? There has to be a way of designing a harness that comes together quickly & efficiently. I had two stupid thoughts, peeps could wear a harness throughout the day at the park & it clips onto the seat or magnetically attaches itself. Kinda like the harness Jodie Foster wears in the Machine in the movie 'Contact.' Another is some kind of 'liquid' harness that flows over your body like in comics. Ehhh, I've been on the PC for too long.

I made this point earlier in the other thread a lot like this one. Have you ever used a lap bar like Flight of Fear's new ones in the proper fashion? If you have, try your best to squirm out of it. You can't. The funny part is that you can slip out of OTSRs if you are small and flexible. Your lower body just does not bend in a way that would allow your body to slip out of a properly positioned lap bar.
