I am a 24 year old woman that is 290-300 lbs and I am 5'3. I know I am fat! but- I am working on losing weight. I am eating healthier and working out now. (please spare me "Eat better, exercise") I am on it! Anyways, this Friday my husband wants to go to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles, Ca. I want to know what rides I can ride there? I am very bottom heavy ( Big legs, butt, and lower stomach) I wear a 24 pants size. It would be awesome if someone would tell which rides I can and cant ride? Thanks for your help and (Non- mean,hurtful,troll, douche' bag) comments.

I would be glad to help. You would actually be surprised how many rides you will most likely be able to ride, but most of the coasters have test seats right next to the entrance, so you can try those before riding just to be sure. The fact that you say most of your weight is lower actually helps, as the biggest problem on roller coasters is getting the restraints over your shoulders or across your lap.

Basically, to sum this up, if you can get a restraint to lock after about 2 or 3 clicks of the restraint (I think) be it a restraint across your lap or your shoulders, then you should be good! Have fun, SFMM is truly a great park!

The only time I've seen someone have trouble was on Terminator: Salvation. The seats are a bit narrower than normal, due to excessive padding.
