I was there in January - I'm 5'6, 220 and hold most of my weight in the stomach and upper body.

I rode the rides below and fit in all of them. The High in the sky Trolley was the tightest fit. I rode Forbidden Journey 3X and I think one of the seats was larger than the others - I'm not sure which one.

Jurassic Park River Adventure
Pteranodon Flyers
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
Dragon Challenge
Flight of the Hippogriff
The Cat in the Hat Ride
The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride

I am a couple inches shorter and about 20lbs heavier... we went to US/IOA last Sept. the only thing that I really wanted to ride but couldn't was the Harry Potter ride... I was able to fit on the mummy (which surprised me) but I honestly didn't try many of the high action rides anyway.

I am actually starting to get to the point that the high action rides are too much for me (had some issues after riding SM last year) so skipped EE last year, but rode it the year before... no problems fitting in. You shouldn't have any problems

Thanks everyone! From the way the lap bar looks if nothing else I can make my legs fit in then just squeeze in once the bar is down!

Hi kdkbrebel!

Wanted to let you know that as a pooh sized girl this past August, I was able to fit extremely comfortably on all of the coasters at WDW.

* Expedition Everest was more roomy than I thought...I have large thighs and was able to fit well!
* Space Mountain was a smaller seat but was easy to get into and fit...getting out was a little tricky.
* Big Thunder Mountain had no worries with this one.
* Splash Mountain was another easy fit, I was nervous about the lap bars but they are mostly there to keep you from standing up during the ride, not to prevent larger riders.
* Rock'n Rollercoaster was also a good fit...it was kind of weird getting out though for some reason..it dips down low.

Any other questions...please ask!

Unfortunately I do not. Out of what I heard they are more strict with their seating, some coasters do have modified seating which could be helpful, but I am no expert at Universal, sorry!

It was like a regular theater seat. I fit, but my hips we a little squished. I had read on here that if you can get an isle seat, the arm rests lift, so that's what edid and I was so much more comfortable! But I would have fit without that though.

The Hulk has 2 rows I believe that have modified seating. The last time I rode it (at 5'6" and 265 lbs) I had no issues fitting in the modified seating. I've never done the Rip Ride Rocket. No issues w/Mummy either.

Thank you. We are thinking of going with people we don't know really well and I don't want to be embarrassed.

It has been for me. I don't chafe as seriously as I develop these knots from my thighs touching and if I use it I don't have this issue. I also put it all around my feet to avoid any irritation from rubbing.
