    I wonder why the TM did that? What is the difference if you click it yourself or someone else does? Glad she could ride without issue! :)

    Not sure my husband is going to be able to ride he is a big guy, tall, and barrel chested. We'll see in 3 weeks!

    Rider requirements are that you have at least one appendage that can hold onto the restraint if necessary. The ride attendant probably thought that the guest was not able to pull on the retraint and that is why the friend pulled it down for her. My guess is that the attendant was just making sure that the guest was able to pull the restraint down themselves.

    You should be fine helping your husband. Many people help their kids also. As long as the team member can tell that your husband has full use of at least one arm, they most likely won't say anything.

    I was really worried about fitting on the ride. But I was there this past Sunday and I was able to ride. I am 298 lbs and I'm 5'10". I got two clicks on my own and the worker pushed for the third. So I would definitely try, even if you have doubts that you will fit.

    My DH is 6'4" and now 300+ and he did not fit in FJ.
    I wish we knew about the tour, he could have done that.

    I went and fit no problem. I'm 5'4" about 250 lbs. 44DD, mostly a size 22. Plus I was wearing jeans and had a big wallet in one front pocket and a camera in the other making me even wider than I already am. I got 2 clicks but thought I heard 3 so didn't try for the last one but the CM was like whoops one more and pushed lightly for the 3rd.

    Thank you, that helps me a lot:) I would have been upset if I didn't fit too. I can still squeeze into the airplane so I wasn't thinking about much else...other than the amount of walking I should have been training for

    I have read where the end seats of the ride (four seats in a row right?) are larger than the others. Does that mean that both of the seats on the ends of each group of four are larger than the middle ones?

    The actual seats aren't larger. The restraints have been modified to get the necessary number of clicks without being pushed in as far, but yes it is the outside two on each row.

    The seats are the same as the ones in the middle. The difference is in the harness. The farthest left and farthest right seat are the modified harness seat and even small kids can sit in the end seats

    I was a little worried about whether I'd be able to do the ride. I'm a heavy 45 year old, 42 waist, longer torso, shorter legs (30 legs, 36 arms, yeah, I'm a gorilla!) weigh about 250 pounds.

    No one questioned me, I hopped on one of the outside seats, pulled down the restraint and saw the green light (although I thought I only heard two clicks). Rode it twice with no issue whatsover.
