P. 288: New B&M Dive Machine Announced!

Recommended Posts

^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!

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.

I would have expected this to have a seat belt from the beginning. (As well as TNTG) 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.

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..

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.

Awesome news! I'm so glad it opened, but I still feel bad for everyone that went on the TPR Texas/Midwest Tour. I hope everyone of you will get the chance to ride it soon! And I hope I do too!

That diagram is comical and puzzling at the same time. More importantly, it's puzzling. Is that diagram suggesting that the operators are going to instruct the rider to adjust their stomach so that the restraint lowers to where the seatbelt extends across the waist? Does the seatbelt have to go under the stomach? I don't want to be an operator on IRAT if I have to adjust a rider's stomach position to fit the restraints. Talk about an embarrassing situation; even if it's for safety.

 

Also, it would be interesting know if the requirement for the "green light" to come on has been made stricter.
