I'm not sure if you would want lapbar only. Some of those elements, such as the third inversion, could really throw you forwards because of how jerky they are if you didn't have that vest.

That would be the exact reason that Intamin just added vests to the previously lapbar-only Flying Aces over in Abu Dhabi. Idiots couldn't stop leaning forward in the wing seats during the first inversion and a few people injured themselves.

Except on Mind Eraser I tried sitting all the way back but that ride is too jerky in the first 3 inversions to let you.

Yes, at least one of the trains already has them fully installed according to two trip reports I read somewhere either here or elsewhere. The other train(s) were supposed to get them soon. (Check Screamscape)

Walibi Holland interested in crazy new coaster
Image
Is this crazy coaster coming to Walibi Holland? The Dutch themepark is considering to buy a bizarre 37 meters high 'free spin coaster'. Told Yas Fujii from American coaster builder S&S Sansei to Looopings.

In a free spin coaster passengers sit in tilting coaches on the sides of the track. The 309 meters long coaster exists of a vertical lifthill, a lot of hills and sharp turns, all built above each other.

Insiders tell that the coaster could be build on the site of oldtimer ride "Le Tour des Jardins" in the theme zone "France". The coaster could open in 2019 or 2020.
