Any Possibility?

Hello everybody!
It seems like people have been having a lot of luck since the ride was modified and I was wondering what you thought about the following dimensions. I was hoping to take my wife for our anniversary, but don't want to risk embarressing her. She either wouldn't give me her dimensions or didn't know them, but she did tell me her dress size, which is a 30/32. From there I learned the typical dimensions are:

57 1/2 - 59 (BUST) 51 - 55 1/2 (Waist) 60 - 61 1/2 (Hips) 5'8" (Height)

Any Hope?

We've never had a problem at Disney, but from what I hear Universal in NO Disney in this regard.

THANX

The reason being is because if they feel discomfort while on the ride, they can come back and say "I was uncomfortable and couldn't breathe (or whatever) because the employee pushed it too hard on me." FJ might have the same restriction, to avoid a liability.
It sounds like this is the rule but not all the TM's follow the rule. It makes the one that does follow the rule seem like the "bad guy"... Just an observation.

The rule for TMs is that they can use the force of one hand to get a guest to the three clicks.

We went Dec '10. I am 5'6" and wear a ladies 20/22 bottom. I fit in the end seat with no problem. I didn't try a middle seat at all.

I wear a 28 and am large chested as well.... I tried the test seat and while my bottom fit fine, I was unable to get a yellow light... so the ride was a no go for me.

Just got back from 9 days at US. IOA, W&W and Sea World

I am 5'8" <Male> and around 325 or so .. I could not fit on FJ, Hulk, RRR, Dr Doom, Manta or Kraken ... I could get on all the simulation rides including MIB, Spiderman, Mummy, The Hippogrif coaster and Journey to Atlantis.... Basically if it had a lap bar I was fine but it if had the shoulder harness / tight seats it would not click.

The test seats were great and the TM's were very helpful and polite.

We had a great trip and look forward to future visits to the parks

Do the modified seats have to get a green light/third click or just to the yellow/second click?

If you fit on Hulk's modified seats are you likely to fit in WWOHP or is there a big difference?

This is very helpful...though I'm starting to have anxiety about my trip in February.

I'm an 18/20 but due to the way I carry my weight (I've no hips or backside. I'm mostly thick-waisted, I guess), I've never once ever had trouble with a ride. I'm getting nervous now though! I've done many harness-type rides without any trouble.

I guess to be on the safe side, I'm going to lose weight. Harry Potter is as good a reason as any, I guess.

I am going be there next week. I am worried about fitting onto FJ as well as some of the other rides (going to Universal and IOA).

Can someone tell me which of the other rides might also be a tight fit?

I am female, 5' 11", wear size 20. Weigh 260. Bra size 42C.

Thanks!

I think you will be fine. I'm 5' 10" , wear between an 18-20 on the bottom (depending on what kind of pants), but I have a much smaller chest than you.

We just got back from our trip. My anxiety levels were through the roof with this ride. My husband didn't travel with us so it was just me and our 6 year old daughter so there was no one to give my harness that extra push.

We were staying onsite so we had the extra hour in the morning without all the crowds. The anxiety got worse as we got closer to the castle. My daughter and I stopped at the outside test seats and I got a yellow light. The girl there said if you can sit like this for about 5 minutes you are good to go. Anxiety eased up a bit but it wasn't gone because I remembered sometimes you fit outside but not inside.

Got to the queue, walked to our bench, and grabbed an end seat on the left with my daughter to the right of me. I lucked out the TM who helped me was awesome. I sat, raised my arms to pull it down, and he said "NO! Put your arms down and out!" I did as he said and with an extra push I was in!! I gave him a very loud "YOU JUST MADE OUR TRIP! I LOVE YOU!" I was more excited I fit into one of those seats than I was about the ride. LOL

My daughter absolutely LOVED it. She was so excited we got to share the experience. I'm glad I ride with her but I would never ride it again. When we got off I could barely walk and almost barfed. OMG the motion sickness was BAD!! I had a TM walk us behind a "staff only" fenced area because I was scared I wouldn't make it to the bathrooms. LOL

The only real advice I have is don't wear jeans. Wear bottoms that have some give. I wore a pair of black cotton capris. I really don't think I would have fit if I would have had jeans on.

I hope this helps. I took a picture of the test seats. Let me know if you would like to see it.

Ok...leaving next week. Hubby is 6.' 5" and weighs 320. He was going to lose 20 pounds but that didn't happen. Please please please someone tell me he will fit in modified seat. We were there last year 2 days before modified seats were put in. He got one click then. I'm freaking. Anybody. Thanks

I just got back from Florida and rode FJ last Sunday. I'm a 5'10" male, 52" waist and bottom heavy. I just barely fit into the outside seat. When the attendant pushed down to lock me in, I could barely breath. I could not fit into the seats for Dueling Dragons, however. I can't understand why Universal makes so many rides that leave a good percentage of the population out.
