i like the lapbar!!! and i was wondering how many times have yall rode the tower in one day?


The first time I went on it, one of my best guy friends was a Bellhop, we went through the main way (so I could see the preshow) and then we rode... then we backdoored (just taking the chicken exit in reverse) and rode again and again and again....about 30 times. That was no breaks in between, 30 times back to back, ride the elevator up, did the drop, rid ethe elevator up... we did it until I could hardly walk anymore. I had a 6 foot 1 guy on one side and a 6 foot 2 guy on the other, as I'm 5 foot 6 at the time, and they were both about 100lbs heavier than I was. Talk about major air time everytime we rode. :santa:



omg...I only rode it 51 times in the 4 years I went, imagine if I was a bellhop!!

So now that the conversion has been over for sometime, are the seatbelts better than lapbars?

I still say the lapbar, although it's "scarier" with the seatbelts.

Lapbar. Nothing beats sitting next to someone bigger than you, and you end up having like half a foot of space between you and the bar.

Although it's rather funny to see people who are first timers freak out when they see that a piece of nylon rather than a piece of metal will be holding them out. :santa:

That happened to me my first time I rode. I was like "I have no lapbar!" and the CM was like you've got a nice flimsy piece of nylon to hold you down sir" :bluecry:
