From Screamscape:

Quote

The latest work from our insiders is that nearly half of the cars have now been converted into “all Seat Belt” cars and they hope to have the rest finished by Memorial Day. We’ve also heard that a rumored 5th Program may be on hold due to the extra stress the current Tower 4 programs are putting it through. One source says we can expect to see the Tower undergo an extensive rehab sometime in 2004 before we see any more programs added to the mix.

I was there last week and I rode it 15 times. I got to ride on every one of them and I love what they have done to it. I would have to say my fav sequence is when they do the "false ending" where they have the family and you think you're done but then you go speeding back up again haha. I'm glad to say they have seatbelts in all of them now. I like the seatbelts SO much better... they keep you in you're seat better when it drops so now i dont have to worry about keeping my sunglasses on my head *L* i can hold them now.. :shifty:

More news on conversion....

Quote

50% of the cars have now been converted to seatbelts only on Tower of Terror and all should be finished by Memorial Day. They have handrails on the seats that you can hold onto if you want to. The rumored 5th ride program may be on hold because of the stress the current Tower 4 programs are putting on things. One rumor is for bigtime rehab in 2004 before the next generation program would be considered.

Oh well... I liked it much more with lap bars, but, whatever is safer I suppose.

And I'm sure its much safer... because people like me used make the lap bar really loose and stand up :wink:

DUDE. You say that like it's a bad thing!!! I mean, c'mon you got 8th row seats (All b/c of me. Thank you, thank you. *takes a bow*)

I woulda gone to the Bon Jovi concert when they came down in March, but the night of the concert, I was at MGM. :D

I'm looking forward to the Aerosmith/KISS show, though. Got front row seats through my dad :mrgreen: And I'm trying to get him to see if he can score some BSPs too. *crosses fingers*
