Restraints comparisons

Tuesday, August 19, 2008 12:39 AM
I am wondering how the following restraints compare (in terms of rider size).

The difference between standard B&M restraints, and SLC and Maverick-style Intamin restraints.

The difference between an S&S and Intamin drop tower restraints.

Thanks

I haven't been on an Intamin drop tower so I'll skip that.

Of the first 3, I think the SLC is the most accomodating, then the B&M restraint (invert or floorless) then the Intamin restraints. Before I lost enough weight to fit comfortably in the B&M restraint (regular sized seat), I was able to fit in the SLC restraint easier and couldn't get the Intamin restraint buckled, though I was close. Now I can fit in all 3 without a problem (able to buckle the belt myself and without struggling to get it buckled) *** Edited 8/19/2008 5:00:20 AM UTC by YoshiFan***

Thanks, good to know with regard to the SLC.
I know that some Intamin restraints are smaller, but is it true that the Maverick-style ones are more accommodating than B&M?

Yup and if you got a friend, They can kneel on the restraint. A Op won't do that. I may never be able to ride TDD and for sure MF again but I rode the Intamins at Hershey and Kingda Ka rather easily
