Just returned and my 6'6" 285lb husband was able to ride on FJ. He got the yellow light but no big deal. He is broad shouldered and a little bit heavy in the middle but not too bad.

My 48" daughter made it on too - she loved it!

Actually having both of them having to be pulled out of line to be double checked made our wait much shorter! We skipped the last 5 minutes of the original line because they put us in the much faster child swap line to double check my husband and my daughter.

I was happy that we all made it on - such a unique ride.

Looks like I was being too nice on my husbands weight in my first post.....285 lbs is the more accurate number. He may have been reading over my shoulder in the first post! LOL!

YAY! And thanks for posting. My DH is about your DH's size, although he is working on cutting some weight. Getting excited for summer!

I've stalled at 300lbs! Doesn't look good for me. I do feel a lot better losing 35lbs so far. My trip is late March. Maybe if I add a lot more exercise into it, I might lose the last few lbs. I still haven't cheated on my diet since the day after thanksgiving! Happy Valentines Day everyone....

Congrats. Keep up the good work. Late March is still a ways away...you have time. Do you track your food & exercise. I just started tracking it all at myfitnesspal.com (there are also apps for your phone & iPad too), but it's amazing to see what you really do eat. Helps keep it all in check.

Well some decent news, I've finally broke the 300lb mark and now I'm at 296. Hopefully this gets me to the next goal of 290. I've noticed my body shape has got a lot better when I was stalled at 300-305lbs. It will be interesting to see what I will be able to do March 24th and 25th at US/IoA.

short and fat

I was at Universal Orlando Feb 2-7 and had no problems on any rides, though I spent a lot of time worrying about it and tried every seat outside the rides. I am 5ft 1 inch, size 18-20. Rip ride Rockit was a tight fit around the middle, but not uncomfortable. I didn't even need the outside seats on Harry Potter. So short people under 210 lbs should have no problems.

We have women size 22, 24, 28, and 30, not waist size, but pant size and shirt sizes.

What size fits?

I know if you're taller you might fit. If you have a big belly and buttocks you might not.

Please someone, guesstimate a size that works. Will the 22 and 24 fit and not the 28 and 30. Or because the 28 is 5'11 and carries weight well, will she ride.

I know this is crazy, but we can figure out size better than height and weight.

Please can anyone help?

I'm just trying to stop embarrassment, and plan the trip.

Thanks so much!
I'd love to see sizes here too....

I havent been here lately but just saw this thread.

I rode it in May 2011, at the time I was 280 lbs and a busty woman. I had no problem. Oh and I am also 5'9". The good thing is, I have since lost 100lbs.. Wahoo. Bring it on in Sept again.
