i really think that if these become a success (which it looks like they are), most SLC's should recieve trains with these at major parks. Obviously there are many many many SLC's out there so distribution would be interesting, but these restraints definitely will make the ride experience a lot more pleasant!

It's about time they are replacing those god awful seats. I mean I sure hope they do. That is why I stopped riding the Nor'easter. My ears would hurt so bad after riding and I would get such an awful headache. We will just have to wait and see. And I can't wait to see the new coaster that debuts between the two piers next year. Thank heaven I have a house down the shore!

So maybe intamin can update their neck chopping OTSR's with something like this. Oh how I hate those horrible horrible restraints.

This is great news! Nor'easter may have been one of the "smoother" SLC's, but last year there seemed to be alot more headbanging. The open design is perfect for the location. Now people can actually see the waterpark they're flying over.

Smoother? GNE is by far the worst SLC I have been on! (of the 10)
Its also the only one I didnt reride....Because it was that bad.

Too bad cause the view it has its so nice. It just ended up beating the shit out of me.

^You are exactly right Canobie Fan. I haven't been on it in years. It really was a head chopper. The Morey's organization is pretty decent company and maybe they will invest in these new seats to make it a smoother ride. Let's hope so! Now, if they would only reopen the Golden Nugget..............

I'll have to look into it considering they are testing the lap bar SLC trains...

I really hope these type of restraints catch on. I can think of a ton of coasters that would benefit from these (*cough*Intamin*cough*). In fact, any coaster with OSTRs would be so much better with soft restraints.

I think this is the first thing I've seen Vekoma do right.

Wow those look very cool, and most importantly comfortable and less head banging.

Hope to see this on all SLC's some day if they are as comfortable as they look.
