Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

Having only ridden it the other week, Valkyria at Liseberg, it is really affected by the b&m vest restraints
I guess I should preface this by saying that Krake is the only B&M Dive I've done, but I would probably actually say the opposite? I haven't experienced vests on other dive coasters, but I feel I would actually enjoy Krake more with the vest restraints cause the seats are wider to accommodate the restraint. The old B&M restraints/seats are very cramped horizontally.

Most of the trouble is lack of float down the drop, rest of the circuit is good. It's sad that B&M are putting on more of these vest restraints than the typical OTSR's. Obviously the only type that has only had the vest one is the wing, and that's okay on them.

All RMCs - The tightening can be really uncomfortable, I always leave some room and by the end I'm in a lot of pain. The adrenaline gets me through but they can be extremely painful.
The Voyage - This is more about the seat divider rubbing against the side of your leg but it's partly the restraint forcing your leg to be in that position.
Baco - Maybe would fix the rattle #strawclutching
Kingda Ka, Storm Runner, Stealth etc

Voyage. Restraints. Are. The. Worst.

Holiday World and their ****ty dividers are offensive. Those trains are just ass in general.

Rita, definately. I think it has decent air-time and would've massively benefitted from being more open. Although the hop into the brakes may be abit too brutal without anything there to catch your top half.

I dunno if its because not a lot of people have ridden them but

Zamperla's Thunderbolt coasters have godawful restraints. They're bulky, super uncomfortable and they always staple no matter what. Something a little more open would do wonders for those rides since the rides themselves are pretty solid (even if they've got awkward transitions).

Maverick 100% for me. The ride itself was fun, but the restraints pinning my shoulder blades to the seat just killed all enjoyment I could have had.

Stampida at PA. Those trains are ****e. They put GCI trains on Tomahawk, they need to do the same thing to Stampida.

Also, swap all SLC trains with the new Vekoma SLC vest trains. Then they would actually be good rides.
