And, not surprisingly, enough people jumped in last week to put The Voyage back above El Toro...

...like good little lemmings.

Dance, puppets. Dance! Mwahahahaha!

Wow, I forgot to look. Interesting. While I have some "anti fraud" measures in there, I should still take a look at the raw data to see if it's working. That's not as close as it was last week.

Bummer. Now I'll have to resume my IN trip plans.

I would love to ride EL Toro. Problem is....I read it is very weight conscious if you are a larger person. Any truth to this? I am 280 pounds and 6' 1" tall.

It's true. I'm 6'2" and 260 and IBarely make it. But it depends on your body.

As a larger person myself, I also found out that if you're packed in there tightly, the restraints make the ride extremely unpleasant. So much so that it's not in my top 5 just because of how much it hurt. Had it hurt less, I could easily see how it would be at the top of many lists.

I'm 5'11", about 240. By the time they give me the extra coupla pushes, I'm extremely uncomfortable and constricting. But I wouldn't call it painful, and it remains my favorite ride. As stated above, it's body type more than anything. I've seen many that appeared "thinner" than me be turned away.
