Before I start, I don't want this to turn into a topic just making fun of H&S and whatnot, I'm sure most of you know what I mean by that. Over the past year or so I think we've all noticed various changes at Towers in regard to H&S. The fences in the gardens, the new loading policy on Oblivion, new hideous handrails on the Flume, new operational policy on RMT including how they check the lap bars, where staff must stand for dispatch and delayed restraint unlocking. And then possibly worst of all Rita, where we have this monstrosity: (Photo credit: TowersStreet) The whole fiasco after the launch cable snapped last season. It had been fine for 7 years then all of a sudden they need a scaffolding tunnel. It also has terrible effects on Rita's throughput. All because you can't stand under the launch track. In the cases of Rita, Oblivion and RMT the throughput's of the rides have been effected significantly. It is frustrating and not seen in any other parks anywhere in the world. So I ask the question, has H&S gone mad? There is of course a place for H&S; it is needed and it is important. But over the last year there have been some things that do seem over the top and I feel they are having a negative effect on guest satisfaction.
