I'm going to PKI next month and was wondering about a couple of their rides (Face Off and Gyro Drop) and how those manufacturers' restraints match up against those I have ridden (B&M inverts and S&S turbo drops). I have heard that they are slightly smaller than the ones I have ridden. I don't have any problem whatsoever with S&S restraints, now for the B&M's up to this point it's only been possible to ride in the "big boy" seats, but that was nearly 6 months ago and I have since lost some more weight. I will squeeze into Raptor while I'm at Cedar Point if it kills me lol Anyway, those of you that have ridden both, let me know the differences. Thanks

Vekoma restraints are actually roomy at least on Face Off and T2, T2 was actually looser than I like,I felt like I was gona fall out. I had no problem on Volcano (Intamin) at PKD, at least in the front seat, but in the middle they used the extender belt, but I could have pulled the restraint tighter If she would have just asked!! The extender was completely loose. I too have been worried about Raptor!! Never rode a B&M invert, it is the only CP ride I have never ridden, drat.
As heard on Amtrak 44: "If you look out the left side of the Train you will see the coasters of Cedar Point."
