    Re: OSHA Concerns over the Matterhorn?

    Case in point;might as well put lap bars on cars too. Driving your car is idk how many more time dangerous, but then they tell you ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT. I think if anything just make the seats a little more comfy, other then that don't change the cars.

I also think that locking lap bars would make the ride more comfortable.

    Thoughts?
    If this is a concern to you, it shouldn't be for much longer. The park is working on installing locking seatbelts on the new Matterhorn Bobsled vehicles. I've been in touch with one of the mechanical designers at the resort for the last couple months as they are using some of the components made by the company I work for in the design and construction of these new seatbelts.

    Unfortunately we live in a sue-happy society now, and it seems the legal system is coming in on the side of that personality mentioned above (despite the fact that it is "choices" they themselves made and are really responsible for) more and more.

    Personal responsibility is slowly becoming a thing of the past.

    As an aside though, I guess I've learned how best to ride Matterhorn now and I brace myself in a certain way to keep the jostling around to a minimum. To be honest, I personally find Indiana Jones more irritating. Not unsafe, just excessive jostling that I don't dig.
