I am going to King's Island tomorrow and am worried about my weight and riding rides. I weigh aprox 260lbs and wear a size 24 clothes. Has anyone been there that is aprox my size and ridden rides easily (or not been able to ride the rides at all)....Just trying to avoid embarrassment in front of all my friends if I can. :(

OK - Update for anyone who wanted to know. I rode nearly every ride easily yesterday at Kings Island. The only coasters I didn't ride were Beast and Son of Beast becuase I didnt want to get jerked around and I heard their seats were a little tight. But all the other rides were great. Also, un-weight-related advice, dont ride Tomb Raider unless you like being held up side down for 20 minutes hahaha. That ride scared the crap out of me.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. I am so glad it went ok.
