We have no issues in the parks what so ever... There are some attractions that have no leg room or that are a little tight...
This set my mind at ease a bit as I am a size 24-26 and am 5'8-5'9 so thank you

Astro Orbiter is incredibly awkward, especially if you have a child riding with you who isn't quite big/old enough to get in and out on his/her own.
I was looking at pictures of the ride vehicle on the website and wondering how people get in and out of the thing lol

I second the Goofy Sky School. I have thick thighs, and barely can get the bar down. I usually skip this one, but had two boys with me that could not go on by themselves last time I was there. The only other ride I have a problem with is the chest area on CA Screamin'. All of the other rides are "pooh" size friendly at least for me.

What in particular is the problem? I'm a bit concerned about this ride as well.

I'm guessing the issue would be getting the chest restraint in enough to "latch" into place--that's what holds you in on the ride.

My sister is Pooh-sized (over 300, carried around her middle), and has this issue with many rides at amusement parks in the past. She can fit in the seat, but when the chest restraint comes down, she can't get it to the first (largest) locking part. And if it's not locked, you aren't restrained!

I going to *try* to be very sensitive here, so I hope it doesn't come out the wrong way, but I was wondering if part of the problem with your sister is above her middle too?

Once again, sorry if I sound insensitive, but I wanted to ask.

LOL, that was a very nice way to ask No, her issue isn't due to the size of the "girls," it's all her tummy.

Just thought I'd resurrect this thread to confirm I had no problem with riding CA Screamin' on my trip in October. In fact, I was quite comfy.

I'm 6'0 and was at 295 in May when we went. The only issue I have on rides is leg room. My knees get smashed on some rides. But I was able to squirm into Gadgets go coaster with DD in may. Winnie the Pooh I always ask to sit in front because there is a LOT more leg room in front. The back seats are terrible for me. I have to sit side ways. Im not a big roller coaster person so won't go on screamin but BTMRR, Space, splash, etc are no issue. Haven't been on the Matterhorn since I was 12 and much smaller but I think I will try it out next trip.
