This may be a small consolation, but the one plus about comfort collars is that it should mean seatbelts will not be necessary. As I understand it, it's an either/or, not both. And from a ride op point of view, I'd imagine comfort collars are much quicker to check than seat belts, especially when buried under a lab restraint. So in theory, the ops should go faster.If this ride ends up with lap bars, Comfort Collars, seat belts and shin restraints, It's a one and done.
I dont know how to feel or react to this info other than to just laugh at how the arguments would have been the same, or if TC was announced AFTER this was built and just how much carnage would have happened over mimicking a "current rides" mark.Other fun facts we learned:
-WCR began development in 2014, and was to be the follow up to Full Throttle, but RMC was too much of a bargain and too much of a hit to pass up.
What happened to Tigris?They have the same clip BGT SRII has. Gonna make the dispatch times DELIGHTFUL....But at least they won't accidentally come open midride
Full Throttle has seatbelts though which severely slow down its ops. The park is trying out comfort collars to see if they'll help speed up the ops.I still can't understand why they would install these comfort collars. I mean, SFMM already has a ride by Premier next door that does go upside down and does not feature them
Nothing, because it has this style carabiner clip for the collar....Whereas Tempesto has a seat belt buckle and since the restraint doesn't actually lock... if you accidentally poked the buckle release the entire upper harness flies open (mid ride)... and they even have signs in the station and I believe the audio recording telling you not to hold on // touch the shoulder harness (comfort collar) and it was either SeaWorld San Diego or Busch Gardens Williamsburg where they had a unnecessary news story where the harness opened mid-ride and the rider "feared for their life" situationWhat happened to Tigris?
