The Other Siebert
OSTRs would be ascenine on ToT. The physics of the motion ride keeps you from hurting yourself. As the tower is programmed right now, it is possible to sit in the car totally unrestrained and come off (mostly) unhurt.
The main purpose of the lapbars (and the seatbelt in the jumpseat) is to keep you from drifting laterally and landing in the aisle or on the edge of a seat and getting an armrest shoved up your behind.
Removing the lapbars and having only seatbelts would be an awesome thing. This would decrease ridership, however. I have seen more than a few people take the "chicken exit" and not ride when the elevator doors open in the boiler room and they realize that there are no OSTRs or seatbelts.
