Hopefully this is a sign that Six Flags will move forward from this accident and people can ride these amazing coasters again.





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

^ I don't know if you're aware of this, but adding a seatbelt will not reduce airtime. That's not how gravity works. Maybe the trains are running a little slower than before, possibly due to not being running very much since the accident or for some other reason. (A slower train is the only cause for less airtime)

EIDT: The seatbelt could potentially give you less space to move in your seat, if that's what you mean. Could we get a picture of the added seatbelts?

^sorry still new to this and that may have been it because I just rode it once more and seems like it went a bit faster (especially on the cliff) than the first time. I got a lot more air time this time than last.

Yeah that's okay, I didn't mean to sound like a d*ck. Yeah, keep riding, maybe it just needs to warm up a bit!

Yay great news, I'll be back in San Antonio in 2.5 weeks! Not surprised to hear about seat belts and they don't bother me, but just curious to see what they look like.

I Love Donkeys!

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!
