Valcano:TBC problem

Wednesday, June 26, 2002 9:14 AM
Recently when I went on it I pushed against the harness to see if it was tight and there was a screw sticking out of the harness. I cut a cut and it was bleeding during the ride. It hurt I checked another harness and they all have it. I think they should take the screws out. Anyone experience this or have any information. Also during the Zero-G rolls it was pushing into me.

Which screws are you talking about? If you mean the ones on the outside part of the shoulder restraint that attach the seatbelt to the harness, I have to agree with you. I cut the inside of my arm up pretty bad on a screw on one of the Wicked Twister harnesses at CP. I had intended to go to park operations and suggest that they put something over them (a rubber covering or something?) but I didn't feel like walking to park ops and I forgot about it by my next visit. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think most Intamin launched coasters are like this, although I've only been on Superman at SFWoA, WT, and Volcano.

Well I have been on Volcano and S:UE and didn't notice the problem on either coaster....then again, maybe it is something new because it has been a couple years since I have been on either of them.

Happy Coastering!

It is the one like that is on the inside of the shoulder harness next to your lower stomach. The other Intamin Launched coasters don't have them I don't think. I got a pretty bad cut though.

If you haven't told anyone at the park about it, you really shouldn't be here griping about it. If you think it is that big an issue, you owe it to them to let them know about, especially if you were injured.

ive never noticed that....the only kind of painful thing on volcano that ive noticed is when you stop so suddenly at the end the restraints seem to get a lot tighter...other than that its the smoothest invert ive been on, i find alpie to be a lot rougher...

Out of all Volcano rides, the only pain I have ever felt was my own fault, meaning my hands were up during the twisting action.

Otherwise, the restraints don't seem to move, even at the end on those smooth brakes, JMHO.
