You should be good. I have a 36" waist and weigh a little under 200lbs. And I am over 6 ft tall and I have always been ok on TTD and MF.

It's not really TTD you have to worry about, it's MF.

I have a 46" waist and weigh just under 400, and have never had any issues with the seatbelt. The only bummer is them not letting me carry my mcdonalds on the ride itself. I was bummed.

You should be fine, I would not worry. ;)

TTD you're ok, I would be concerned a little about MF I've ridden MF every year since 2000, that was until last year when I got in the test seat and I had 6-8 inches of space still to go to get the belt closed. I even lost 10 pounds last year. I'm not trying to scare you but be aware. What is you're height? If you're like 6 feet tall I would not worry. *** Edited 5/16/2005 1:21:02 AM UTC by Marky Mark***

That really wasn't funny.

I weigh the same and have the same waist size you. I didn't get in line for MF when I was there on opening day this year because I was with someone who didn't want to ride. I DID ride TTD, and it was no problem at all, but that's what everyone else here was saying anyways.

My vote is for the "Don't worry about TTD". I got the belt on with no concerns.

I agree with ROS, Shawn. That was NOT funny at all.

I thought it was hilarious.

That being said, I just got home from the park, and while TTD was down most of the day, I can speak for MF. I waited for the front seat and many people who you think would be able to ride were turned away. Basically, if you can objectively consider yourself a little larger, be it gut, muscles, whatever, than most, good chance you're not going to fit. I'd say a 38" waist has a chance, it depends on how tall your legs are when you're seated. If sitting in small cars like a lot of the more modern wooden trains is a tight fit for you, expect a close call or a turn-away on MF.

Something else to keep in mind... Last year I was turned away 1 day, then able to fasten the belt on the test seat and rode in the front the next, then after a rain storm I couldn't fasten the belt that same day... Oh, and I'm 6'5, 240lbs, 40" waist... So if at first you don't succeed, try try again.

But then again, what do I know?

I have a 42 inch waist weigh jus over 230. I barely fit into mf, and i fit into the test chair jus fine. I had an inch on the belt. They didn't have the 2 inch rule or I wouldn't have fir at all. But I fit jus fine into ttd. I had 3 inches of room.

I'm 6' 3", about 250 with a 40" waist and was just able to ride MF this year so you should be ok. You will have no trouble at all on TTD and may have to pull on the belt on MF a little, but you will be able to ride. The ride ops will tell you to pull on the belt and work it back and forth and you will get the slack needed.
