Steel Hawg's trains

I think they look very comfortable and I can't wait to ride it this Spring.

Same exact seats and restraints as Catapult at SFNE and if they staple you in they will not be comfortable at all. IMO going through inversions with these restraints will be a real head banging experience.

^You've ridden Catapult/SWAT, right? As long as all of the movement is directed forward and/or vertically, I don't see any problem with headbanging. Put in a corkscrew or some laterals, and then I'd be more concerned...

Of course, THIS is the ideal train design for Da Hawg: http://www.pbase.com/rollergator/image/86690987

S&S doesn't have a wide variety of seat designs, do they? Screamin' Swings, Catapult rides, Screamin' Squirrel, Thrill Shot, and Powder Keg all use the same restraint (some without the shoulder part) and the same hard plastic seat.

I've only ridden Skyhawk, but while I wouldn't say the seats are uncomfortable, it would be nice if they used the foam like S&S uses on their tower rides.

Why should they? If it ain't broke....

I just don't like the design that much. Compared to others out there.

I'm into Intamin's seat design, but that alone can start a nice long discussion.

My first reaction was: Windjammer!

I really love the seats on the screamin swings, but they don't invert. How are these seat types under inversions and g-forces?

Intimidator 305 the tallest most hated coaster nobody has ever ridden...

I wasn't referring to what enthusiasts thought.

Wouldn't it be fine to eliminate the OTSR's? IIRC, those S&S seats are pretty deep so a rider would have a hard time wiggling/being wiggled free from the lap bar. I'm guessing they're there for the insurance companies?
