Cedar Point weight limitationsCedar Point: Will I fit on the rides at Cedar Point?
From Kate LuithMy family is planning on visiting Cedar Point this summer and I am worried about 'fitting' on some of the rides. I am 5'6" and 240 lbs. Most of the weight is carried on my waistline. I know this is not huge but it is still bigger than average. Does anybody know if I will have a problem getting on any of the rides there. I want to save myself the embarrassment in front of everybody. Thanks for any input!

From Adrienne McDonaldI'm about the same size & while I haven't been to Cedar Point, I can say that the only real issues w/any rides are the coasters w/the newer type of seats & lap bars. I barely & I mean BARELY fit the seat belt for Superman at SFNE/Darien Lakes. For one, the seats are usually more narrow & those woodies w/the divider in the seats I can barely squeeze into. The older woodies w/seats w/o dividers & regular lap bars are easier for me. I haven't had any trouble w/any other rides, even inverted coasters (aka Batman, Alpengeist, etc)who normally have bigger seats designated somewhere on the trains. Most parks have tryout seats before you get in line to see if you'll fit too so if they don't, the only thing else I can advise is, try it, if it don't work out, then you can't ride & then maybe the next time you'll know whether you can fit or not to avoid any embarrassment or holding up the line for others. Hope this helps, good luck.

From Jeff ElliottCedar Point is a little cagey about bigger people...when getting in line for Top Thrill Dragster, they pulled the guy in line ahead of me out of line to try out the seat...and he didn't appear to me to be that big...
