I'll admit I was a bit disappointed with the restraints for like a minute, but I got over it. I look at it like this, if you're not going to ride it because of the OTSRs, that's excellent! That's one less rider in the queue.
I really dont care if there are OTSR out lapbars, at least there is a coaster to ride. If people are going to complain about the restraints than I agree with CorkscrewFoley, the less people in line the better.
I couldn't agree more Robb, though I have ridden considerably less of said rides. Kingda Ka and Storm Runner being the major 2 I have of the said kind. I did not mind it. Considering I see people bash SR for its restraints being harder than the newer versions. I am going to wait and see how this ride turns out.

The absolute best case scenario is that the restraints don't cause any discomfort and are basically just "there". In other words, they'd still be useless/pointless.
I don't understand why this matters or why there is even a pointless discussion about it. It has OTSR's. BIG F**KING DEAL!!! Lots of coasters do. Lots of coasters don't. Deal with it.
Here's a thought.
Wait until the ride opens.
If you like it. Ride it a lot.
If you don't like it. Don't ride it.
There you go...
I've said several times in this thread that I'm excited to ride it and am going out of my way to drive 6-7 hours to ride it, so while I have a minor issue with it, it's not a "ride killer" to me as it is to others. Inconvenience, on the other hand, yes.
I have a lot of issues going on in my life right now and would appreciate not being stepped all over like that. I get enough belittling and disrespect in real life scenarios.
I don't really think the restraints should be taken as a ride killer at all!. Of course I understand that there is people that find them uncomfortable, but why not try to be a little optimistic and wait until you ride it? maybe if you go and ride it, but not thinking about how bad the restraints will be, there's a chance the ride will be a lot more enjoyable!
