On Storm Runner, it depends on how big you are, and where.
I had no problem getting into Storm Runner, but I'm tall enough (which is odd considering that I am not particularly tall) that I was not able to get the lap bar down into my lap where it belongs, because of the @#$! shoulder bar. I was able to ride, but I didn't exactly appreciate getting dumped out of the seat during the too-slow inversion elements.
^^^Just curious, which inversions did you find were slow? Maybe its just a difference in the days we were there, but when I was last at Hershey the train was taking all the elements at near frightening, OMG type speeds.
I'm 5'11" (weight not an issue), and I fit comfortably in the restraints...last time I rode SR, the inversions were still being taken at a wicked fast speed, which is great. Like the others have said, unless you're obese, you'll fit comfortably, with room to spare. If you are obese, or really big boned, you'll still fit. No worries, the ride will be fun!
I'm thinking about the high rollover. It's taken fast, but not fast enough to keep you in the seat. I think it may be the roll rate that is too slow, moreso than the train speed. Kind of the opposite of the rolls on Tomb Raider at Canada's Wonderland, where the ride is moving very slowly, but the roll rate is high enough to keep you firmly attached to the couch.
J-Reimer, how is this possible being that im 6'5" 300lbs and fit on Ka with about 4 inches of slack on the belt. I have big bones big shoulders, and thighs, I am not really fat more muscular but I am tall

You make a good comparison to me! I'm 6'4" and 260lbs. I have not been to CP since the seat belt restrictions were put in place, have you been there and can you ride TTD and MF? I hope I don't have to find out the hard way. I was fine in the TTD test seat two years ago. What other coasters are hard for you to fit on, if you don't mind me asking.
Coasterb, find a hard chair, cut a piece of rope to be 28 inches, and see if you can stretch it across your thighs and touch both ends of the chair. If you can they youre good to go, if you cant then you may have a problem.
Its a little crude but its very accurate (and youre more likely to get a false failure then false sucess.) *** Edited 5/4/2006 11:44:05 AM UTC by Touchdown***
