    Big People At Six Flags Magic Mountain

    My 21 year old brother and I are planning a visit to California in February next year.

    I am 5'8 and about 295 pounds.

    Can anyone tell me about their experiences of going to Six Flags Magic Mountain and rides they could and could not get on?

    Thank you

    Re: Big People At Six Flags Magic Mountain

    You may have an issue on some of the rides at Six Flags Magic Mountain:

    Batman, Riddlers Revenge, Scream: These rides have "Big Boy Seats" that will accommodate bigger people. They are typically on rows 4 or 5 and you can see the difference as they have 2 seatbelts.
    Tatsu, X2, Colossus, Goliath, Viper, Revolution, Superman, Ninja: You shouldn't have any problems with these rides.
    Apocalypse: There is a seatbelt on this ride that may be an issue
    Gold Rusher: These trains are small, but if you do the "Ankle Cross" you should be ok.
    Green Lantern: Haven't heard any issues with this ride and bigger guests, my guess is you should be fine.
    Road Runner Express, Canyon Blaster: These are kiddie coasters, you may have issues with this ride.
    Magic Flyer: You must be under 54" to ride so no go.
    Water Rides: I can't foresee any issues with these.
    Flat Rides: You may have an issue with The Flash and Swashbuckler. They haveshort seat belts. Rest should be fine.

    New Coaster: Not sure what it is yet so won't know if it will be an issue. Check back Thursday when we do our update.

    Thank you. I was worried that me and my brother would go there and I wouldn't be able to go on anything but by the sounds of things there should at least be some things I can go on.

    Thanks for your fast response

    Batman and Riddlers Revenge DO NOT have big boy seats.

    B&M didn't start putting "big boy seats" on their rides until around 1997 and no B&M stand up coaster built to date has a "big boy seats" option.

    ^ Really? I thought they did. LOL

    OK, so Batman/Riddlers may be an issue then.

    I can only speak of the Six Flags in St. Louis, but I imagine it is the same everywhere. When I was near 300 pounds, I could not ride any coaster that had the harness that snapped between your legs. So in St. Louis I could not ride the Batman or the Superman. I am happy to say that I lost 60 pounds and this summer I could ride both of those rides.
