Seat size

Question

Hi

I'm going Thorpe park in about 4 to 6 weeks and I'm a very big person. My friend and I been planning it for almost a year knw I wanna go but I dot wanna go if that make sense it say on the because on the website the seat size is max 51 torso. I'm not quite sure what that means I want about 8 years ago and 2 people had to lock me in the ride (vortex)

Back the I was 3xl at the time 51 to 53 inch after that I I got bigger by the year ending on 6xl 64 to 70 inch. Thank god I found the way to the gym which helped me come down to 2xl thank god which is about 48 inch with a bit

I just needed to let that out as I'm am very nervous if I will fit or not

Thanks in advance for the reply

The only coaster you may have a problem with is Colossus - because it's very pinchy in the seats and if you are tall it can add to it - as in there is naff all leg room - my nieces dad didn't fit in it and he is around 16/17stone (just to add he is very tall - 6ft 4ish which didn't help!) - but they have tester seats outside of all the coasters bar Flying Fish and X which have lap bars so you'll have no problems with those.  

 

As for flat rides, Vortex and Samurai have tester seats (when they are working!), quantum has a lap bar, as does Rush. Zodiac has no restraints so again, no problems there.  Detonator has over the shoulder restraints but I'm unsure if they have a tester seat as I've not ridden that thing since 2013.

Water rides you'll be absolutely fine on and pretty much everything else I'm sure - I've probably missed stuff out but it's late!

 

As Roodie said - don't be afraid to try the tester seats.

 

Have a great time and try not to be nervous about whether you will fit - enjoy the coasters and make sure you ride Derren Browns Ghost Train!  

 

Congrats on the weight loss!

First off congratulations on the weight loss.

 

I'm a 2XL/3XL and I can get on Saw Swarm (it is a little snug), Stealth and Inferno (although I always go to the big boy seats).  Unfortunately I can't really help with the flat rides as I don't really do them.  However anything with a lap bar you will be fine on. Most of the big rides have tester seats, so don't be afraid to try them.

I believe rows 4 and 5. The ride hosts always seem to be nice and try to help out as much as they can. I can't see you having any problems so just make sure you enjoy your day.
