knotts for the larger

Wednesday, June 1, 2005 7:56 PM
I convinced a friend of mine with me on a spontaneous trip to knotts this weekend.

He has never been and i was wondering which rides, besides the obvious silver bullet and xcelerator, should we worry about him fitting on? He's about 6' 300lbs (thick thighs). Is Ghost Rider big people friendly?

I am of no help, as I myself havent been to the park since 1997 (man thats a along time!). I tried a search but couldnt find much to help out. I wanna avoid as much embarassment as possible for him considering I'm draggin him with me. *** Edited 6/1/2005 11:58:07 PM UTC by haiderodes***

Ghost Rider has the standard PTC train with dividers and seatbelts. Im gonna say he could ride it but it won't be comfortable.

Not a chance on Xcellerator.

Im not sure what their shuttle loop is called off the top of my head but NO PROBLEMS THERE!

Have fun

Silver Bullet should have the B&M big boy seat, so that ride should not be a problem.

Silver Bullet, Xcellerator, and Perilous Plunge all have test seats in front of them. I'm pretty sure those are the only ones, but I'm not positive.

I don't think he'll be able to ride La Revolucion.

Yeah, Silver Bullet has the big boy seats, and It is def. one of the best reasons to go.

I can't say your friend is proportioned like I am but I'm 6'3" and weigh 240 lbs. and have never been denied a ride on anything because of my size (except for Knoebels Flying Tigers but that was more of a decision on my part for comfort reasons)
