I'm worried I won't fit this time

Cedar Point: I'm going back and I'm not sure if I can get on some of the rides(especially bigger roller coasters). Looking for some input.

In a couple of weeks I'm going to Cedar Point with some friends. I'm 5"6 and I weigh 250 pounds. I can wear a size 18 to a size 22 in pants (female) depending on the style. The weight is evenly distributed throughout my body like I'm not bigger on the bottom or the top. I am a little on the busty side, but it matches the rest of my body. I went there 2 years ago and I was the same size maybe even a little bigger. I got on most of the rides no problem. The only one that was a little tight was Wicked Twister, but I still got on it. I got on Maverick, Max-Air, Skyhawk, Raptor, and some other ones no problem. I didn't go on the Dragster or Millennium because none of my friends would go with me, but this time I'm going with people who are going on them. I'm worried I won't fit and I think it's mbarrassing to have to try the seats out front especially when the people I'm going with are all really skinny. Even though I think it would be embarrassing to get on the ride and find out I can't fit. I read the requirements at the site, but I'm not sure. Do you think I will have any problems on any of the rides?

Millennium seems to be the worst ride to get on. It seems if you have a large belly it's tough, or if you have really big thighs. My brother can't ride it because of his more muscular thighs, not his stomach, so... I'm not too sure on Top Thrill, but I think that my mom only has trouble on Millennium, and she does have a large stomach.
