That makes sense to you?
Yeah, it does. It's a really weak comparison. If you jump out of the train on a coaster, you plummet to the ground. If you jump out of the boat/tube on this water slide, you're still in the water slide. Again, its a water slide. There's no logic for a restraint.
I'm sorry but I fail to see what sense you're making here at all.
If you jump out of this slide/innertube you're still in water? Last I checked on the video there was solid ground underneath and a two foot tall (if that) wall seperating your innertube from a pretty sizable plummet to the ground. That is absolute logic
for a resraint. I wouldnt want to fall from that height. Would you?
But I think Waterviper hit the nail on the head with the lack of many incidences yet on water rides such as this being the reason for lack or implementation of restraint.
