    Don't have any problems with restraints at Towers apart from :

    Rita : Too hard to lower
    Galactica : Kills my shoulders, always get dead arms after the ride.

    Absoulute Favourtite : The Smiler

    I know not may agree but i've never bashed my head, or anything else, and they never seem too tight, must be my body dimesions.

    Rita's restraints are terrible after having a back row ride yesterday, it made it really rough indeed. Galactica hurts my shoulders a bit but it's not too bad. Th13teen, i don't have problems with them but i had a very loose restraint on Wicker Man yesterday which is always welcoming. Smiler's restraints are probably the best tbh except on the final inversions!

    I must say, I think Wicker Man’s restraints are pretty fantastic; I think those GCI Millennium Flyers are among the most comfortable coaster trains I’ve ever sat in!

    I know it’s not a common opinion, but I really like them; the restraints are really nice, they’re nicely cushioned, they have plenty of legroom, they take the transitions really well on the ride itself, and on the whole, provide a very comfortable, rerideable ride experience, in my opinion!

    They're comfortable enough, I just don't like how they fall back under their own weight on the lift hill. I don't like to have a tight restraint on any rides, let alone a GCI which has a fair amount of airtime.

    Agreed. Not really much that can be done about that final bit. Well the back to back corkscrews aren't too bad but they could do with reprofiling the exit of the cobra roll as that truly is awful
