Ripsaw Falls finally gets lapbars

I was personally ecstatic when I read this because I have gotten hurt on that ride before due to the lack of lapbars. I will definitely be looking forward to the next time I ride this and for the first time not be afraid of ending up with a bump on my head. Kudos to IOA and safety!
The pictures that were linked to the story did look a little crammed so this ride might become a problem for riders with wider dimensions. And to those that liked feeling like you were going to fall out of the log... that feeling is no more. But at least we know now that IOA does care about our safety. :)
[Editor's note: Check out TPI's list of reported injury accidents at Dudley's Do-Right's. This ride developed a reputation among some insiders for injuring individuals who were light enough to be lifted from their seats by the double-dip at the end of the ride, yet old and heavy enough to be injured by being driven back down into the seat.]
