"We've always been involved in not pushing the envelope on design thrills, instead pushing the envelope on better systems and ensuring that everything is reliable"

Thats another cool line. Really sums up the philosophy of B&M.

I know there are more than a few folks that blame similar layouts on a lack of creativity on B&M's part. The quote below from Bob Mampe (another B&M) explains a bit about elements.

"Each one is design-specific for one park with all the elements that they want and need."

Just remember. If "Park A" has a very similar to "Park B", that doesn't always mean there is a lack of creativity from the manufacture.....depending on what company of course. =:^)

Nice article by the way. Thanks for posting.

What about the seatbelt statement? That they're not a restraint as much as a sizing mechanism? Interesting.

I noticed that as well. I guess it makes sense but ever since 1992 I was guessing those seat belts were soley for the purpose of an additional safety back up for the restraints, which technically, they are I guess.
