From Melissa FaulknerI 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.

From Brandy S.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.

From Anthony MurphyI can't really think of a ride that would get you in trouble.

From Carlos MontalvoYes, 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.
