^ I agree. I don't notice them during the ride, but they really slow the dispatch speed.

I have nightmares getting in and out of those Premier trains. Especially the back row of the cars where there's no room beneath the seat due to that metal plate.

Well luckily it's at SeaWorld Orlando and it's a coaster so wait times won't be an issue.

Tigris and Tempesto were my first Premier launched coasters with the comfort collars, and I was surprised at how inconvenient they were for the load/unload process... Not to mention how narrow the foot-space is when trying to get in and out of the seat. The rides are quite fun, except for this part of the experience.

Premier's trains are just about the worst in the business at the moment, but these at least look quite pretty, especially as they don't have those ugly shield things on the side (yet?). Maybe it's like Stockholm Syndrome where I've seen so many of their trains lately I'm starting to fall in love.

What's especially funny about the collars on this ride is that it doesn't even invert at all.

That's exactly what baffles me. I feel like for this ride, they don't even need the shin guards either (except for the front seats of each car).

The only argument I've heard for the collars is that it's a redundant safety system that can be checked after a lap bar has been lowered, as opposed to a seat belt that can't be checked after someone lowers their restraint.

But Phobia Phear has neither comfort collars nor a seatbelt.

Are the only remaining US parks that haven't announced a closure yet the indoor Nickelodeon Universe parks?
