Tiger Terror

The orange hose draped over the simple control pedestal is connected to an air compressor.  A ride operator couples the hose to a port that is barely visible protruding from the tiger's right shoulder.  Pneumatic hoses link all seven cars of the ride to this port, so the ride operator just has to plug the hose into the first car to unlock all of the lap bars.
