I'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.

I'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

Since 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.

Yeah, 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.

I'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.

with 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.
