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.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
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.

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).
Data entry nut for the official TPR coaster poll! https://coasterpoll.com/ Follow me on Instagram for perfectly adequate theme park photos! The opinions that I post on this forum do not necessarily represent those of the company I work for.
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.
