Sum of all Thrills - Size Limitations?

I've checked this out and there is obviously a size limit due to the seat configurations. Anyone have an idea what it may be?
Thanks!

I don't know exactly what it is, but there is a "test" seat next to the ride where you can see if you'll fit before you get into the line.

I'm 5'10" and ~ 300 and wouldn't fit.

I believe it's more of a leg, hip, bottom issue. So it depends on where you carry your weight. Small legs and hips, with a larger tummy should be fine, smaller tummy but thick from the waist down, you may have some issues.

True! I'm 5'6" and 220lbs. I fit, but it's always a very tight fit for my butt. If you've ever ridden Forbidden Journey over at Universal, the seats for Sum of All Thrills are just a little smaller. I have no problem riding FJ, so was surprised the seats for Sum of All Thrills was so tight. I know alot of people have trouble with Forbidden Journey, but the seats Sum of All Thrills is even smaller.

I wear size 22 jeans, and I have to squeeze my hips and butt into the seats on SOAT.

Last time we were there, I was about 220 lbs at 5'9 with 48" hips. I just fit. Any wider in the hips and I would have been really worried about how I would get out! Thankfully I've lost some weight and several inches from my hips, so it shouldn't be a problem any more.
