My favorite type of harness is the 5 point harness since i have one here at home.

As for amusement ride i am kind of nostalgic for rides that have a lapchain such as the roundup or the flying scooters at seabreeze park in rochester or the heart flip (which i have never been on.

Another one that i like is the chest strap on the Chance Yo Yo since the ride uses a seatbelt/strap (whatever you want to call it) in a unique way, surprisingly the strap doesnt hurt me even though i am a women.

I like rides that have an actual seatbelt (of some type) vs rides that have a lapbar or some kind of shoulder restraint

The restraints i most want to try are the ones on the chance or herschell rok n roll (or herschell looper), 6 inch seatbelts!!!!!, i would also like to try out the seatbelts on a watkins tempest or a watkins hustler!

The restraints that i hate the most are probably the shoulder loops on bumper cars, thankfully majestic issued a service bulletin that solved that problem but i had some bad experiences with them before that...
I also dont like falling star type rides such as the wisdom avalanche that have shoulder bars, it just doesnt work for that type of ride, the rainbow has much better restraints with just a lapbar, the shoulder bars hurt when you crash into them when the ride is going up, i imagine its even worse for taller people.

Sky Wheel, of course! [:D]

Tilt lap bars are cool, they do not lock, and the old Mack Matterhorn lap bars (at least the one Wade Shows had) were the same. I recall riding it one time with a friend of mine, and he wanted to know how to lock the lap bar, then got the mess scared out of him when I told him it does not lock and the ride was starting! lol (He did end up enjoying the ride, though!)

Spin Out's harness is pretty tight so you dont get movement in your seat which allows for the smooth ride.

For some rides that requires OTSR's I would have a tie between Mondial and S&S Power. Mondial's on the Top Scan, Shake, etc., are robust enough to be safe without being oddly shaped and cumbersome. S&S used a dual-action restraint on their Screaming Squirrel coaster and Sky Swatter flat ride. It is a lap bar and a shoulder restraint (http://www.flatrides.com/Ride%20Index/SSSkySwatter3.jpg) that is very comfortable. I also found KMG's version on the Afterburner and Spin Out to be quite good. For a looping lap bar give me the Huss Ranger anyday. It is SO much more comfortable than the crappy OTSR's Fabbri, Sartori and others used on the Kamikazes.

WOW! that sky swatter is SO cool. I've never seen anything like that before. does anyone have a ride video of that?

priemer rides used the same style of harness on the Manhattan Express in Vegas.

Spin Out also has the best unloading and loading time.

if you move the people along, on the spin out, if they just dilly dally around, the loading time is shot...the best loading/unloading time for any ride is by far the gee wizz or gravitron

i meant like harness locking process for a extreme ride.

i didn't consider the gravitron cause it doesn't have harnesses.

I'd say Tango. It's just so comfortable! Also, Zipper's lapbar, the Eyerly things, the Mondial restraints, and the Maurer-Sohne restraints.

Bad ones are like Kamikaze's (they SUCK, and there's a little lever that opens the restraint that you could easily bump open whilst raising your hands).
I like reading, rain, British accents, and grey cloudy rainy days where you sit out on the porch in an armchair under a quilt and read.

i rode a larson fireball at morey's piers while i was on vacation last month. it's a lot better then the ring of fire, it's much smoother and not as loud. the harnesses are kind of strange though. it looks like a harness with a lap bar mounted to the bottom if it. since the harness is so big. when the ride goes upside down most of the weight is pressed in to the bottom of the harness. that way you don't hurt your sholders. this thing does have seat belts for the harnesses though. don't ask me why. anyway, the larson fireball is a great ride. racks on a single trailer, just like this older version, the ring of fire, i wound love to see more midways get larson fireballs, they are really nice. it's a shame no shows in texas own one yet even though they are built here (at larson's factory in plainview)
