Huh? What's the correlation between the restraints and the Impulse Wobble? ----------------- --Greg "Beat the rush, sign up for your post-Mean Streak MRI now..." My pageMy other pageAnd my coaster page
There is not going to be a tophat. The train will ride on the outside of it instead of being inverted. I'm absolutly sure of this. ----------------- CLICKCLICKCLICK..... WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Favorite Steel: Top Gun: the Jet Coaster Favorite Wood:Hershey Park Wildcat.
I wouldn't expect a lower 'first click' as Intamin's lap bars have no 'clicks' to them. But perhaps a shorter seat belt. I wonder if Intamin might redesign their lap bar S&S-style to keep the feet back as well. Or perhaps make the seat a little deeper.
RideMan: I know Intamin lap bars don't have "clicks" but I couldn't think of a better way to explain it. I just meant that they would need to be in a lower position to dispatch. But I'm probably wrong on that point anyway...just speculatin'.
One thing I *do* expect to see: TONS of signage in the queue regarding rules and regulations, especially concerning height and weight guidelines.
Ravenguy98: no, I am happy for most people. However, the new lapbars are very uncomfortable for those over 6'3" and impossible for about 6'8" people and taller. I think adding lapbars to Flight of Fear and others was a brilliant idea. I just think the design needs a lot of work.
'Moosh...I figured you knew, but still... :) Also, you can dispatch Millennium Force with the lap bars full-open. :)
I think the actual design may be affected by the...ahem...incident earlier this year. It may be, however, that the nature of any design changes will be affected by the outcome of the investigation, and I have a feeling that any changes might be really hard to notice. But that's only a guess. How many people noticed the significant changes to the seats on Millennium Force for the 2001 season?
