Seat Sizes

November 12, 2015, 2:44 PM

Are Japan's ride sizes really that small? I'm going on a trip for winter break, and I've never had an issue with seat sizes in America, except once at Six Flags. I'm 6'5, 250 and I've heard that Tokyo Disneyland has really small seats that I wouldn't fit on.

What parks are you planning on visiting? I havenĀ“t been to the Tokyo Disney Resort but I have been to Universal Studios Japan and the ride seats were almost the same size as the ones in America.

Both Tokyo Disney Parks, USJ, and I'm taking a detour to see Everland in Korea

I don't remember having any problems with the seats on the rides at TDS, disneyversal, but I'm not as tall as you are. Since Japan has shifted to a more westernized diet, the younger Japanese are almost if not as tall as their western counterparts. You should be fine.

You won't have any problems with the rides at Disney. I'm close to your size and had no problems at Disney. The smaller seats in Japan applies to rides made in Asia at Japan theme parks. The coasters built by Intamin, B&M, Arrow have the same seating size that you would find in the States.

Last year they checked my height every time I rode Raging Spirits went this week and they didn't check. Rode Space Mountain in the morning and when I went back to get a Fast Pass they escorted me into the Mountain where they store the extra trains. They had me try out a couple of seats before allowing me to ride. It's going to be tight for your cousins on Raging Spirits and SM.

Both parks are great!
