    What purpose do those comfort collars actually have? Is it SeaWorld's internal safety department thinking that the ride wouldn't be safe without them, or is it because the GP would see the ride as unsafe without them?

    I'm guessing it's a mixture of both. We know it has nothing to do with state regulations as the same model ride can operate just fine in the north of the state with just lap bars.

    Really love those colours and I am going to admit that I actually do like this ride type - I thought Sky Scream was great.

    Did they only start testing yesterday? As 12th May seems like quite a while away.

    Ah right. Thanks @ATI! So this is going to have had a lot of test runs by the time it opens, then!

    I care, these rides are super fun and even though it's a clone it will be a great new attraction for the park.
