The theme park operator obviously didn't think this through. We're talking about Alabama here. .... NO ONE weighs under 225 lbs.

Came here to say this. Not many people will be able to ride in Alabama!

At least the ride will function longer than usual.

I mean, can you imagine the wheezing that would happen with them waiting in line?

I thought this while looking at an album of Wonderland trolls another fph user posted the other day. No way half of the massive blobs could fit into a single ride - wtf is the point of going? Ah yes, the funnel cakes and XL blizzards must be worth the chub rub.

No 6'2" man should weigh anywhere near 225 anyway. The same can be said for all of this. A 40" waist and a 52" chest are numbers no human should be approaching. I don't see how it's discrimination when the limits far exceed that of any normal human being.

Yeah, at his peak Arnold Schwarzenegger was 6'2'' and about 230 lbs, and his physique was considered so anomalous that it made him rich(er) and famous.

52" chest is actually fine if it's all muscle, but with a 40" waist it should be painfully obvious.

They probably restrict this size even with muscle due to the restraints not being able to fit all the way down.

I'm 6'2 and 195. I couldn't possibly get to 225 and stay lean without steroids.

The 6'2" number applies no matter what your weight is. You can be up to 225lbs but have to be shorter than 6'2".

"This may apply, but is not limited to, guests who exceed 6’2” or those who exceed 225 pounds, have a 40” waist line or 52” chest, or females who exceed 200 pounds or wear a size 18 or larger"

Yeah, I know. My point is that a person of the tallest height they allow still wouldn't touch the highest weight they allow. If the maximum of everything is out of human ranges, then it automatically excludes every other example.

Wow, they finally were able to narrow it down for us. A man's privilege weighs about 25lbs

Wow. This place sounds like the anti-disneyland. Maybe a theme park that doesn't cater to the huffing dead will actually offer a family friendly experience for people who still qualify as human.

As a 6'6'' man I feel discriminated!

(I am still under 225 lbs, though)

I got stuck on a roller coaster when I was a teen (I have legs longer than expected for my height).

It had bars that came over your legs and I was unable to open them without crushing my knees. I have no idea how it happened.

I am actually glad they have limits to avoid me embarassment, now.

Christ. Imagine being so fat that you have to complain about a ride with a weight limit of 225 lbs.
