    oblivion - i fitted
    Nemesis - i fitted

    But in 2 months i am going again and i am planning to go on those same rides above and want to go on the ones below to.
    The smiler
    Rita

    Waleed.

    I'd say if you can fit on Spinball you should be fine on almost anything else.
    I'm sure someone else will be along in a minute to give you a more indepth answer ;)

    I think it's 48" chest for Galatica and Rita and 52" for everything else, they don't give guidelines for legs, 13 has a lap bar so you should be good on that, not sure sbout the rest sorry.

    There are test seats outside some coasters to see if you will fit. I know rita and galatica have them.

    No worries. I'm a fat bar steward myself, so I understand your concern. ;)

    You should be able to ride everything, though spinball may be uncomfortable due to restrictive restraints. Rita, oblivion and galactica all have test seats outside, and all main rides have staff outside the enterance who should be able to help you out if you're unsure :)

    Tip for Spinball: cross your ankles. It lowers your knees and stretches your gut out. Not by much, but enough to make a difference.

    Height is also a massive enemy on Spinball, I'm somewhere in the upper 5 ft and Spinball is only just okay
