My niece's birthday is next week and my brother is taking the family to six flags. I'm about 5'8 and 295lbs. My niece really wants me to go so what rides will I have a problem getting on? My waist is about 48 inches if that helps.

This is about the 3rd or 4th thread about this same thing. lol Anyway All I know is Im 5'5 and 200lbs and had no problems on anything. You may have a problem with el toro's seat belt. I could barely get it to fit around me. It depends where you carry your weight too, I carry mine in my hips which is probably why I dont have alot of problems. If you have a big stomach you might have problems but they have test seats outside most rides.

well i'm 5'11 and 240 pounds with a 36 inch waist. and fit on everything. u shouldn't have a problem with NITRO but i would try the test seat to be sure. El Toro might not work out for u though i had about 4 inches to spare on the belt, but unfortunately it wasn't running. Great American Scream Machine might be tight if u have a big belly. Medusa ans Bat Man shouldn't be a problem. good luck =)

Just to give an update for those who are in the situation I was in. I had no problems with El Toro (which was a tight fit), the Scream Machine, The Dark Knight, Skull Mountain, or Superman. Batman was a problem since the test seat wouldn't buckle so I skipped it. All in all it was a good experience. Once again thanks for the replies.

How about Kingda Ka? Did you get on that?
