From Anthony MurphyHi!

The only ones that you probably will have a problem with is Batman and X Flight. With X Flight, you should be able to have a cast member assist you getting in there. Batman is very hard!
You are probably going to be squeezing into rides all day (I do!), but you should be able to fit.
Best roller coaster for us bigger people? Dark Knight Coaster and Superman!
From Andrew DoughertyYou should be fine. I was there last Monday.

From Katie MusgroveThank you guys!

I actually contacted a worker and she said she is 4 inches short than me and the same size and she fits just fine. I'm still nervous to go, but I feel a little better now.
Thanks so much!
From Anthony MurphyYou still should be fine either way. You are not that big. I am a big guy and there really is only one roller coaster that is tough: Batman.

You can also test the cars in the front of the entry of the roller coaster!
From Katie MusgroveThank you. I feel a lot better now. I am pretty big though. All in my chest and stomach area. That is what I worry about.

From Karly TenneyI think if you were bigger in your thighs I think you would have a problem. But I think you should be good.

From Katie MusgroveI mean, my thighs aren't small or anything, but I guess I will just have to go and see for myself. Just have to sit in the tester seats, it is worth a shot. Thanks for the comment!! Much appreciated.
