Ok, so with the old lap bars on Tower there was always a way to cheat when the CM checked to see they were locked down... that way you could get more "air time" or "float" :twisted: but with the new seatbelts has anyone found a way to do the same? Can you just plug in the belt, but sit on top of it? Anybody tried this?

Thanks!

Nice, I can say as a Tower CM that it's partially people like you that made the seatbelts come into play. You can't just sit on the belts either. The Tower CMs went through extra training to keep things like that from happening.

Thanks QuickGold...

Sorry Jillian, I didn't mean to say that people should do this I just wanted to know if people had done this. I just wanted to know if there was a way... not that I'd try it! It just seems that everytime something new comes out (like the seatbelts) it take only weeks for someone to come up with a way to beat it or get around it. :rollblue: With such a big deal about how the seatbelts are more safe I just wanted to know if they were "fool"proof.

They automatically lock just like the Star Tours ones, just like the ones they always had as the "seat belt" seat.

Though, everybody loves the airtime (I do, too), I think it's a really good idea that Disney did this. It keeps people safe AND it prevents potential law suits.

Here's what ya do,

Pull the seatbelt out as much as you can to where its all bunched up, then hold each side so its like not having a seatbelt at all. You will go sky high.

Unfortunately this only works in the back rows, because CM's can look right in the first and second :roll:

David, I thought it locked back in whenever slack was taken up? I have never tried so I really don't know.

You really need to remember why they do this, though. It really is for your safety. Though, everybody likes to get some air time, it's just not the best idea on an attraction like that. Just my thoughts.

You just gave your entire plan away to a CM. Now they may know what to look for when people like you try to get away with this stuff! :(

Jason: It does take the slack out when you let go, thats why you hold it on both sides so that it keeps the slack :(

How frequently do you have incidents that occur because guests tend to be stupid about these things (ahem) :?:
