Well at the entrance they have a demo seat showing you how and what the seat looks like. If u pull down the restraint there is a green light meaning you can ride. The trains have seatbelts kinda like the ones on sky screamer which yes you would think that eliminates all the air time which it took out some but not a lot. The bunny hill on the cliff wasn't as airy but still had a bump of airtime. Overall with the seatbelts it's still an amazing ride. I will post a picture of the entrance so you can see it. Im going to ride it as many times to see if where you get the most airtime and I will post back

It's kinda hard to see in this pic but that's basically what they did. Sorry it's blurry.

Wow! Awesome! If you can get a pic of the test seat out front or any other pics of the new seat belts that would be great!

Fabulously FIERCE!

I would have expected this to have a seat belt from the beginning. (As well as NTAG) I don't have a problem with them, they actually make me feel more "secure" on a coaster in general.

I see they put the "rattles" on the back of the trains again also.

Good to hear that the ride has re-opened. I'm not surprised that they decided to install seat belts.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Man, gotta get back out there before school starts back up. My son really wants to ride it. Glad to hear it has reopened. I wonder what that means for us NTAG riders up here in DFW. Kinda bummed about the seatbelts. Gonna quench some of the airtime, but understand why they did..

Glad they got it reopened...seatbelts seem like the best trade-off at this point in time.

Cool, I was planning on checking out the Fright Fest this year so now I have more motivation to go ride Irat a few times. I'm sure the seatbelts won't do much to the ride experience. I think it's safe to say Ntag will have seatbelts when it opens.

While I don't think the ride "needs" seat belts its certainly better than the alternative. Most wooden coasters have seat belts anyway so I'm pretty ok with it.

100% certainly these will end up on NTAG as well.

Noob question- Will seat belts actually make the ride safer or is this just something to appease the general public? Also- Anyone know if NTAG is getting the "seatbelt treatment"?
