Hey, I am going to kennywood amusment park in pennsylvania, and I am fairly overweight. I weigh like 245 lbs, but I only look like i'm around 200 lbs if you had to guess. I mean my abdomen is fairly decent size and I've got a larger chest proportion than most average girls. I was wondering if anybody could tell me if I would have trouble with most rides, or which rides? Thanks for any help! :)

Well I think, as I often say, if you don't have a tryout seat available by the que line then I always get inline anyway, try to get in, if I can't then just move on to another ride but since I'm really not familiar w/the park, you may want advice from someone else who is. I think you can probably fit on Thunderbolt & Jack Rabbit, maybe Phantom as far as coasters are concerned. Take a look at the ride list & if there are photos available, make an educated guess. Usually if you look at the ride, you can pretty much tell if you'll fit or not. I'm large too & usually only have trouble on wood coasters but only certain ones though. Have fun!
