New Tornado in Canada but there's a catch!

Super Aqua Club, a waterpark around Montreal, Quebec bought a Proslide Tornado. But... it looks like they'll be enforcing the same rule as on their 2 other cloverleaf rafts slides. 4 guests only per raft. Be it 4 childs, 4 adults, they don't care. 4 guests only!

Anyone else find it weird? Last year, I went to that waterpark and me, my brother and cousin were denied riding the 2 family raft slides due to being a party of 3. Reason given for that? The rafts would not be able to hold us!

Hmm, usually it's a weight issue. At SFA, there is a 700 lb total weight limit on their Proslide Tornado and an 800 lb total weight limit on Bahama Blast, their family raft ride. Now, it's hard for me to believe that they would turn down three people trying to ride saying the raft wouldn't be able to hold you unless you all are significantly larger than the normal clientel (like 270 lbs each). I don't know, maybe it has something to do with balancing the rafts or something, I'm totally clueless on this one.

I know Geauga Lake bought and is currently constructing its new tornadoe, but is there any other parks with a similiar rule?

I checked with Holiday World and they don't have such a rule. As far as weight? Both my brother and cousin are skinny teenagers, so that would not be a problem, as 3 of us would not push it more than 500 lbs.

They mentionned a "balance problem" and how the rafts would tip over. They were definately enforcing it, asking anyone who got in line if they were a party of 4 and kicking you out of the line if you were not.
