Wouldn't a speed bump be rough on Phantom's Revenge, especially coming off a 160 FT drop? On the Thunderbolt when it first goes up the lift, you experience airtime and the lapbar hurts your legs. I don't know how their going to pull this off, and still make it comfortable.

Well, that depends on your definition of rough. I'll take getting pitched into a lapbar over bashing my head around ANY day...
But I'm an airtime whore, so what do I know? ;)

The only evil worse than the trim brake is . . . THE SHOULDER HARNESS!!!

I would take shoulder harnesses on a coaster over trim brakes, but it depends on what coaster it's on. I share the same hobby as GregLeg, airtime whore, but hey, it's a fun hobby. They could make it comfortable by replacing the harnesses with the padded, T-shaped bars and seat belts similar to the ones found on Millennium Force.

A lot of coasters have speed bumps right after the lift hill. Take the Blue Streak, for example at CP, in sequence, It goes over 2 small "speed bumps" before cresting the second tallest hill on the ride. personally, I love the speed bumps!! Full of airtime!!!!
