I guess I am one of the exceptions that I actually enjoy Mean Streak they way it is (but I also like Boss at SFStL lol). It seemed to be running so much better by the end of the year. Not saying I would be against the RMC treatment at all though. I think it could be transformed into an awesome creation if they proceeded with that project. If I had to guess, I would agree with Andy though, that any major project done to Mean Streak would after the anniversary.

 

As for Gemini, I would hate to see anything drastic changed on it, nor do I see that happening. With the revitalization done to the Gemini Midway, Gemini is still the centerpiece of that area. Its ridership was 5th for coasters last year, and its a fun coaster that most of family can enjoy together. That is the theme of that area, family fun, from Camp Snoopy to Pipe Scream, Monster & LE Eagles.

No one makes a one-size-fits-all OTSR. I am taller than normal, so it is the shoulder part that makes contact and hurts on some. However, I don't even remember feeling them on Avatar Airbender, Volcano, and Wicked Twister. After looking at the colors, it seems that your picture could have been taken on Fahrenheit or Kingda Ka, two other good rides that have restraints that were not a problem.

You are right the picture is for kingda ka, I have not ridden volcano or wicked twister but I have been on possessed at dorney. The suspended chassis had a different style restraint more like arrow used to have. The vest style restraints on i305 do look comfortable.

Top Ten: El Toro, Kingda Ka, X2, Nitro, ShieKra, Tastu, Montu, Storm Runner, Goliath (SFMM), & Talon: Grip of Fear

Yea Gemini is certainly a great "tweener" coaster for kids and adults. It's a good transition coaster and I don't think a whole lot of people really complain about that one too much. I've had good rides on Mean Streak, but it's not run well enough consistently for me to say it's REALLY worth keeping as is. I considered maybe talking about a topper track redo, but I think that would be too hard to market as a new ride unless they did a drastic layout change like they would with Iron Horse track.
