We loved the ride!! We went back today again to ride...DS wore lose athletic shorts because they were going to ride the water rides afterwards. Yesterday he had on cargo shorts. He said the fit was easier today for him so if you are borderline, he said it would matter what type of shorts you wear. He did not sit on the outside either. I have no idea if that matters as we never tested it out in another seat. Awesome Ride. Even though DH nothing nothing about HP, he thought it was cool.
