I must admit i find Rita the roughest of Alton's coasters. It seems to shake from side to side a bit

I am not the biggest fan of Rita, have found I quite rough and shakey, especially in recent years. It also hits my head against the restraints every corner, so I usually end up with a headache after.

If SW9 doesn’t turn out to be a replacement for Rita, I think it would benefit from getting those newer OTSRs seen on Intamin rides like I305 and Maverick.

Doesn’t either TFD or KK (I can never remember which is which :lol) only have lap bar restraints? 
Mack / Taron style lap bar restraints would breath a whole new life into Rita.

Whilst I'm not sure where SW9 could go, I don't think Rita will be updated or changed until it is removed. It just seems like a ride that honestly is just there to soak up the crowds and merlin won't invest any money into it as it doesn't "need" it. I'm not sure if a new ride would be place there. It would be great but given the restrictions with constructions, unless you built downwards, I couldn't see anything being built there.

Rita is an weak coaster though in its present form though compared to other intamins. Personally out of every coaster (other than spinball) it could be open for replacement.
