    Red Face Locking seat belts and disasters?

    Not to make anyone paranoid but, what happens to the locking seat belts on rides such as Indy, space, if there is a major fire or other disaster in the ride building? The vehicle E stops or power is cut to ride after major disaster or a large fire and cast members can't or won't get to you. Do the belts release so you can try to make your own way out and save yourself or do you have to stay trapped by a seat belt? Again I don't mean to make this a scary thought post, just curious.

    I imagine the seat belt works like the air brakes. If power is cut off to the vehicle, the belts are unlocked.

    what happens is it's time to get to nibbling or hope your car keys will do the trick.

    A Ginsu knife can cut through a tin can. Ask Ed Valenti.

    I've been on Indy when it broke down for a significant time. Eventually the vehicle kind of "relaxes" in that it seems to shut down and drops down on its suspension. At that point the seat belts were still locked and a cast member came by about 5 minutes later and released them from the back.
    Sitting there locked into my seat, it made me a little nervous to think that if I smelled smoke or suspected any other kind of danger, we couldn't get away quickly.
    Stupid paranoia!

    This is why I tell people to keep a pocket full of elf tinsle (as used to cut the jail cell bars in The Santa Clause) with them on DLR rides.

    If locking seat belts make you nervous, you definitely don't want to think about what would happen if one of the sub portholes popped. You'll have a panic attack.
