Big man at Cp or PKI?

Saturday, September 27, 2003 6:52 PM
I just learned that my brother in-law is coming in next weekend on business. We want to take him to a park one day while he is in. The choices are PKI and CP. The problem is he is about 5'10" but has a 50" waist and a 52" chest. Which park is the better choice and what could he probably ride at each.

From my experience, I think that Iron Dragon and Gemini are definites at CP but I am not sure of anything else.

Thanks in advance.

50 inch waist? He can count out MF, TTD, Blue Streak, Mean Streak, definitely DT, Corkscrew, Raptor, WT.

I am at a 46 inch waist and had problems with those rides listed above (with the exception of TTD) 2 years ago. Raptor was a tight fit for me and I didn't bother with Mantis. CCMR fit fine, Gemini, Magnum, and Power Tower were the ones I rode the most.

You could call each park and ask what body types are "fitted" for each coaster.
I am not who you think I am.

I think that you are going to be out of luck for most of the rides at both parks. Sorry.

2003 Parks: Cedar Point, SFWOA, Kennywood, PKI, MIA, SFGAM, SFKK and HW.
Still deciding where to go in 2004.

Truthfully, I think he can ride everything at PKI except for Drop Zone and Reptar. Tomb Raider and Delirium are questionable, Try the test seats.

CP you would have major problems, Mantis and Raptor are definetly out and so is the Cedar creek mine ride. Millie is questionable, If you going to do it, Sit in the front seat of a car, There is a difference of about a inch due to seat possition. You can ride corkscrew, Iron Dragon, Magnum, Gemini. Power Tower is a big question mark as well.

Chuck, close to those dimentions and can ride everything at PKI except Drop Zone and Reptar.

Of course PKI has flying eagles and that automatically makes PKI better :)
