My family is going to Seaworld this Dec and most girls are plus sizes(18W TO 26W). We just want to know if we are going to be able to ride the rides at seaworld.

I think the only ride they may have a problem with would be Kracken. The harness can be a tight fit, however I do know they have a seat for larger people I just can't remember which row its in. The ride operator could help with that. When we rode it, we were in the front and I needed help form the operator to get the harness latched and I wasn't quiet a 26. But there is a larger seat available so everyone should be able to ride. Other from that I didn't have any problems. Can't say about the new coaster, I haven't rode it yet.

I visited Seaworld Orlando about 3 weeks ago and I did have problems on the ride. I'm female, 5'11" 275 lbs, and size 22/24. I was able to fit on Manta but it was a tight squeeze. After waiting 45 min to get on the front row of Kraken, I found that I was not able to fit in the seat at all and the ride attendant didn't offer any help to get to a bigger seat, which I didn't even know existed until reading about it today. Journey to Atlantis was ok, but it was a tight fit because of my long legs and there wasn't much leg room.

I can't really think of a ride that would get you in trouble.

Then again, there is only like three rides at Seaworld

Yeah, but it can still fill up an entire day with all of the shows there.

Yes, I ride Manta, Kraken, and Atlantis and I am a husky guy. Atlantis is a bit tight and I am not quite 6Ft tall but you can always ride solo on your seat for this one.
