    Yeah, many of these excess restraints are either due to local laws, or company request. Some good examples are TTD and KK having different restraints, despite being almost the same ride. Another one is that B&M Hypers from Cedar Fair have a seatbelt, but Six Flags ones don't.

    There must me a serious issue with the track for them to remove it. Or they just have weird maintenance.

    What?!
    I'm very surprised to see this - the Aus parks seem to have stepped up their maintenance game recently for obvious reasons, but whilst I may have been a little non-plussed by the ride as a whole, I can confirm it was glass smooth back in April.

    Intrigued to know what this is about

    Yeah, that's not 'normal' maintenance.

    Portions of track being removed this soon in the ride's life - who actually built this, S&S?

    What makes it even more out of line is that it's the top of a hill, which normally gets less problems then say a valley. I'm willing to bet they found either issues with the track itself or the supports or even deeper, the foundation.

    I love how they site Maverick, PMBO, X2, and Dodonpa as having major track modifications, yet did any of them happen to this degree ONE season after operation?

    I don't really think it's like that, at all...

    Could it be down to a similar problem to what 2017 GaleForce apparently suffered from, where the rails weren't quite parallel?

    I think the Big One was after two seasons and wasn't Maverick before it even opened?

    According to Wiki, PMBO was three years in -

    Sounds like the same issue DC Rivals might be having, but three seasons in.

    Maverick was just a design flaw from the outset - at least they didn't let it operate for a year.

    Apparently the track has been put back into place. No photos, just a local's word for it.
