From Joshua CounsilI've always found some of Cedar Point's restraints very snug. I'm 5'11", 240-lbs, and stocky, and I just barely got the seat-belt closed on Millennium Force.

From Gareth HI'm 6ft 5, 200lbs 34 inch waist and don't ever have any probs, or even any close calls. I think larger chests can sometimes be a bigger issue

From John JacksonSince you've been you already know that the tight ones are MF, TTD, and WT. I'm 6'1", 290 and I fit on WT with some ride-op magic, but wasn't close on TTD or MF. However, I must say that I was closer than I was last year when I weighed 320; I didn't notice any difference in the restraints this year. Of course it's a proportion thing, but at 260 and 40 inch waist I wouldn't foresee you having problems.

From Eli KatzmanYeah, MF and TTD have the same restraints as Superman: Ride of Steel, at my home park, SFA. My legs almost touch the edge of the car, it's so tight, and I'm 5'5''! But, I have a pretty short upper body and long legs... So see for yourself, I guess.

From Eugene KohI'm 5 ft 6 and I have a lean body myself, long necked guy. I don't have long legs and It's not a problem. Just try and get yourself to the most comfortable position.

From D-Man O'Connellwith 260lbs, you should fit fine. the weight limit varies but its usually over 300lbs. except for any flying rides where u r facing the ground, those are have a lower weight limit.
