Claims he was injured because his restraints weren't working properly..... on Cyclone..... which has no restraints.

I am confused does it have a straight jacket restraint? I mean I can't think of any restraints on rides that I have ridden that prevented me from raising my arms if I chose to do so?

I can barely lift my arms on Griffon, because my torso isn’t wide enough to give my shoulders clearance.

That said, Cyclone appears to have lapbars and it is unclear what the restraints could have to do with the injury (unless he was able to stand up?). So, I imagine the reporter garbled something. That happens a lot.

The ride appears to have a fixed grab bar with a vertical support on the non-boarding side. A sign says fasten your safety belt but only found the merest glimpses of the belt. One video pans to the sign as they are presumably being put on.

It's very similar to Jack rabbit at Kennywood (from what I've seen in photos and POV).... Very small "seat belt".... The sign does say to hold on to the grab bar at all times but regardless, what he is claiming doesn't seem to line up with reality.
