So, I was talking to my parents about visits to Busch when I was little, and we happened upon the topic of Loch Ness Monster. I made a reference to the fact that the Arrow horsecollars pinned me in even as a wee lad. My parents both said that Loch Ness originally had only lap bars when it opened (they both rode in '78). I was surprised by this, but upon further review, it makes sense. OTSRs of any kind are unnecessary on simple loopers as centripetal force will hold a rider to the seat during a loop. Plus, those horsecollars are far too small for the trains and seem to have been placed later (without much foresight). So, does anybody know whether this story is true? Thoughts, opinions, comments, complaints? Throw it all out there.
