    I really loved this ride, it's one of the only roller coasters rides that I would love to go on over and over again next to Space Mountain. Since I have a phobia for roller coasters that are very high up and I enjoy roller coasters that are indoor (Since you don't have to worry about the height) unlike the majority of thrill rides in Six Flags.

    My boyfriend is 26 and 6'1, with a gut and he fits fine although his legs are kinda cramped. Just try again and good luck.

    Well kids I just got back and have good news and bad news , for me.. on our second day of our trip this was our first stop.. and guess what.. I rode the mine ride.. However I was squeeshed.. I mentioned to the little girl ( at my age they are all little girls.) .. that I had tried to ride the day the mine opened.. and she promptly let us ride again.. and THATS WHEN I HURT MY KNEE.. It couldn't take the togetherness of my big legs and other vital parts.. and it got worst as the week went on .. the last two days I had to ride a scooter just to make out the day. I guess that a couple of days of being home and not walking 9 to 12 miles a day will make it better.. but be careful on this ride big guys.. I won't ever ride this ride again.. but at least I did it twice in one day.. twice in 10 minutes.. and the ride itsself is GREAT..

    You'll fit fine. A member of our family is about the same weight and she had no issues getting on that ride or any ride. She also holds it all in her belly. Don't worry!

    I am going to do this in April. I am a 5'6" height female who weighs 165 pounds. Will I fit in the ride?

    it comes down to male anatomy and thickness of the legs.. whether you can fit or not..

    I'm 6'5", 265 pounds. I have ridden several times. If you get situated before you lower the bar it's easier to adjust to a more comfortable position afterwards.

    I was 6'0 425lbs and was able to ride it. I had to press my legs together tight.

    A lot smaller now!

    the truth be told..not always but after a hard day of walking.. my knee hurts where i injured it back on this ride.. not every day and not even every week.. but once a month.. once every two months.. and its the same hurt in the same area... I doubt that at age 60 that it will ever be the same..

    My hubby is 6' and weighs slightly less than yours and has no problem riding. Your hubby will be fine.

    I'm really sorry for wasting valuable park time just to be told no. I think Disney needs to have a discreet area within the park where they have a sample of every attraction seating where anyone can go and try it out for size. It would save the guest so much time and make park planning a breeze. Write Guest Services and make the suggestion. This is not a problem exclusive to you, so please don't think so. Keep in mind there are also people who are too tall for some of the attractions too.
