I thought that too, but rides like Hollywood Dream don't have that. It seems like only the Japanese companies, Arrow, and Morgan (which happens to have Steve Okamoto on their team) used the side platforms the whole ride. Maybe they saw that wooden rides had them, so the Japanese customers would request the side paltforms (just a guess).

i think it also may have something to do with the number earthquakes in the area as well. Should the train stall at any point due to a quake, the riders can be evacuated as soon as possible.


I am only guess though.

Almost right, another reason, the Japanese are very safety concious. Should in an event of when a train stalls or a disaster occurs, the passengers could easily get out of the train without having to worry about cherry pickers and such.
