Hi everyone! I will be visiting BGW next month and I am concerned that I might be too large for some of the rides.I am 5'5" 265lbs, 51 inch bust area and 52 inch belly. Has anyone my size, or close, had problems or have any advice?

Hey Natalie, About 2 years ago I was 210lbs and am 5'5(lost 64lbs am down to 146lbs now woohoo) Anyway I had no problems with any of the rides at BGE. I would occasionally have problems with some of the woodies at other parks, just a tight fit tho not denied a ride tho. If you have really wide hips or a big stomach you might have problems, it all depends on where you carry your weight. Griffon should be no problem at all, as there seats are very roomy, and also have big boy seats and so does Alpengeist.
