This thread is still a thing?
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 I started this thread.. I am going back in 3 weeks.. does anyone know if there is a test log to sit in to see if I fit? I really do want to ride this ride once in my life..
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!Oh NO!! Now I'm worried my daughter really wants to try this ride and she doesn't really ride any rides. However I'm large 5'5" and about 240 it it a height thing with legs being too high or a "large person" thing with stomach being the problem. I carry my weight in my stomach area.
I agree with the other poster a ride vehicle as a "photo op" and a warning about the ride vehicle not accommodating all body sizes would save people embarrassment and wasted time standing in line.
My hubby is 6' and weighs slightly less than yours and has no problem riding. Your hubby will be fine.Wow. Sorry to hear about that! I'm glad they did what they could to make it right by giving you extra passes for other rides, but I know that doesn't take away from waiting all that time just to have your wife ride alone.
If you don't mind me asking, do you think my husband would have the same issue? He's 5 ft 11 and weighs 220 pounds (mostly muscle, as he does heavy weight lifting).
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.well Kids, I just got back about an hour ago , 10 days at WDW.. On Sunday, we ran to the mine ride when the park opened.. we were about 30th in line.. my wife in a scooter and me, a big MOOSE.. so an hour and 10 minutes later, they open the ride.. we get right down there.. and my wife gets in and there is no problem.. HOWEVER, I can't close the bar.. I am too big for the split bar to fit over my knees.. So my wife rode alone.. I asked to ride as a single.. and have one leg under one bar and the other.. and it works.. the bars lock, I am in.. BUT.. .the powers that be.. won't let me ride.. they say you can't straddle the bars.. so.. Larger people.. and I was told by some WHITE SHIRT, that, Yes, we know there is a problem.. and NO, you still cant ride..they made it right by me.. I got a few immediate ride passes to any ride.. but that doesn't make up for the fact that right now, BIG GUYS like me, or maybe you, cannot ride this ride.. this and one poor meal were the only downfalls of TEN GLORIOUS DAYS seeing the mouse..
