A few questions about PKD and PCar

Thursday, June 24, 2004 3:14 AM

At the end of July, my family is going to Mrytle Beach and I have talked my mom into stopping at PKD and PCar. I'm a big guy (tall and little over weight) and was wondering what rides I won't be able to ride. My main concerns are Hypersonic, FoF, Top Gun, and Vortex. The reason for FoF is that little orange foot thing below the lap bar. My big feet won't go under that thing (I couldn't ride Poltergiest for that reason. The seatblet was about a half inch or less too short). I'm pretty sure I won't be able to ride V:TBC because of the Intamin restraint. Well, thanks for your imput.

I think you pretty much answered you own question here. You are likely to have trouble with FoF. Hypersonic is very forgiving, I don't think you will have a problem with it. Vortex and Top Gun are Beemers, and unless you are really large, you should not have trouble there either.

Rihard's avatar Try wearing a pair of sandels for your FOF ride. You may have a better chance of riding if you eliminate a bulky shoe. Flip-flops aren't the most comfortable shoes to wear, so make sure you bring a change of footwear for when your done riding.

Thanks guys. Is there any possible way that I could put my feet on the other side of the orange thing? Like in front of it. Just Wondering.

No. If you could, that would completely de-feet its purpose.
