Reviews of Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit:
...but the lab band restraints have pluses and minuses. While allowing you to choose your own soundtrack to the ride, they are extremely uncomfortable. I am a regular-sized adult male (not overweight by any stretch) and I felt like I was being cut in half during the entire ride. I guess that's better than worrying about being "thrown clear" in an accident scenario, but it really distracted from the overall enjoyment of the ride.
