Mystic Restraints???

Recommended Posts

So I spent Friday night taking the walk of shame on Mystic due to the lap bar not locking.   Thought about it and realized u had my wallet and phone in my front pocket.  Ok moron, lap bar isn't gonna lock with that in there.  Fast forward to Saturday and I got smart.  Cargo pants. Thinking they're less bulky and nothing in my front pockets.  Still no dice.  I religiously rode mystic just 4 months ago during winterfest.  Still wearing the same size clothing comfortably. So thinking what gives.  Did something change with the restraints since December or is everyone just being nice to me. Lol. Either way, I'm going to be losing some weight but just curious.

When I rode on Saturday I didn't notice anything different, just seemed like the same old Mystic restraints to me. Don't know if it's just you or something else.

I'm usually a 2-3 click guy on Mystic, but Saturday only 1. I don't know if it was the layers of clothing I wore, or my off season weight gain program I enjoyed.....

I always fit but I have trouble on The Beast because the bars turn me inward for some reason. Don’t carry a lot of extra weight but I workout almost daily and have rather large thighs.

Ride operator can no longer use excessive force. Since we are trained to check with one hand, therefore we can only use one hand to push.

Tips: cross your ankle and lift up on the seat belt will help.

I'm a decent size guy...6'4" 230 and I didn't have any issues with the restraints either this past Saturday.

Thank you for taking this approach to it instead of blaming the park or operators. More people should be like you.

I'm guessing a little of both with me. Lol

Same issue I have. I work in EMS and "squat" large patients on a regular basis.

Just be grateful that you were at KI and not CP. I’m 6’1 220 and am very questionable on a lot of the rides. I think most people are my size or larger rather than smaller.

I rode Wicked Twister 4 times that day - 3 were no problem and once was a walk of shame. The walk of shame was in the middle of the other rides. It just shows that not much is put into the consistency of the seatbelts.

For the record, this appears to be an issue that’s relatively exclusive to Intamin.

I was able to ride Wicked twister at 6'5 245-250# and everything at KI still, but droptower.. I think it just depends where the extra is carried

And pretty sure I rode everything at Cedar Point with no issues

MT I find to be super roomy.

If I am sitting anywhere near the middle of the train, I have to have assistance.  Front or back, i get the lap bar down no problem.

Wicked Twister is just a total crap shoot. I'm a bit bigger than Boddah and was able to ride it last year. There just is a super huge tolerance on whoever cut those seatbelts.

Not sure when you went last year, but I spoke with maintenance during Winter Chillout.  The belts were replaced mid-season last year after a lot of problems with them being too short.

They felt the same to me as well on Saturday

So, not to go off on a tangent here, but does anyone else think that the most uncomfortable part of Flight of Fear is the round part of the restraint that crushes down on your feet?  Does anyone else know what I'm talking about or do I just have fat feet?

Yep the front row of each car you have the wheel well under your foot. That is why I like the second row of each car.

I did not notice anything different with MT. Then again, with 3 extra layers on I did not pay to much attention to how tight they were.

I've only ever been able to ride odd seats on FOF

And even in the odd Seats, Yes I hate that feeling on my feet!!!!! but I can't even fit in even numbered seats

FOF is the most Uncomfortable ride I ride or have ever rode, but I still ride it

My forever ride complaint will be Drop Tower making belts shorter. I went one year and it has belt extensions going both ways, the next year only one way, since then it has been to uncomfortable for me to ride, and that took place some years ago. never understood why. I've let Droptower go. I don't even look at it
