I am down to 285 from 369 now and I am five six. Does anyone know what is the typical weight that someone has to be to fit into a roller coaster? I haven't been on one in years..........because of my weight. I have a chance to go to Six Flags this weekend, and I don't want to get turned away from a ride.
Anyone that had gone lately, did you fit comfortably? Please let me know. THANKS!
Much of it has to do with the girth of your midsection, and if it is one of those roller coast seats that have a padded metal U-shaped piece that drops down over your head and abdomen, your chest girth may be a factor to.
You can call Six Flags and ask them, and I advise you to do so to avoid any unnecessary embarrassment. When I was at 300# and 5'9" I did not fit in such rides and my weight is pretty well distributed.
Just my experience. I hope you have fun. And it will just get more fun as you continue to lose weight. Roller coasters are the best--the faster, higher, steeper, scarier the better. Hmm...only my son-in-law will ride on those with me, but my grandson is chomping at the bit to get tall enough, so I'll have other compatriats.
Thanks for all the replies everyone. I am going to have to try out that Superman for sure! I can not wait till next summer when I kow for sure I will be able to fit. I am going to be like a kid all over again. Six Flags in right in my city. I am thinking SEASON PASS! Who knows, maybe I will feel okay at Hurricane Harbour, the Six Flags water park.
