  1. I have scored the internet for pictures or descriptions on how the ride harness or seat belts work so i can limit my walk of shames. I would like to see if anyone else who is of Large Size has found rides they can fit on. I am 6'5 395 lbs (Losing more weekly about 6-10 lbs a week). I will list the rides i have tried and my results. if another else can also do the same this might help us larger guests not have to suffer from the dreaded walk of Shame. Skull mountain Pull bar restraint first seat in car for taller guests NO issues at all getting on this ride. Sky ride - Simple get through the door and off you go Justice league Pull down lap bar Can not ride this is any more then 1 other guest the bar will not give a green light to the ride operator. Front row is best for taller guests. Bumper cars - over the shoulder strap i was able to squeeze this on when i was 500lbs so this ride should be no problems Dark knight - push down single lap bar .had my son push this lap bar down another 4" and i still did to get the green light from the operator. -- Walk of shame ride for me Congo Rapids - Velcro seat belt - Tight fit but if i put it above my belly buldge i was able to ride. this strap did come undone a couple times when the boat bumped into things. Buccaneer - Lap Bar i would suggest sitting with the single lap bar there is no issue at all on this ride. Batman the ride Over head harness with seat belt - Not even a chance as the molded seat is not made for large guests - Walk of shame ride King da ka Over head harness with seat belt - i am about a inch away from having this buckled an the yellow line showing - Walk of shame ride for now

    Rides update El toro Lap bar with SHORT belt - Was not even close Belt was a mile away from connecting - WALK OF SHAME Harley queen- Same Lap bar system as Skull mountain - EASY just leg room is a little cramped. Buccaneer Lap bar system larger guest should sit in the smaller lap bar solo. Tango :Lap bar system- This ride was not made for taller guests but is doable. Diablo Over the head harness with seat belt. - Could not fit in harness WALK OF SHAME\
  3. 5/27 I arrived at hurricane harbor bright and early at 10:30 They decided to close for the day due to rain so I decided to go to the other park to enjoy my day. When entering the park due to the drizzle they need to go back to old school bag searches which I forgot how long the security lines were. Boy I love innovation. The park was empty due to the rain felt like I had full run of the park with no ride having more than a 5 min wait time. All ques were empty. Nothing new to report except they opened the path right behind the ride information building now. Looks like the landscapers did a fabulous job and you can now get a good look at the completed Cyborg ride. Ride count (Kids ride count included) Nitro 4x Skull mountain 13 x Tea cups x1 Buccaneer x1 Swashbuckler x1 Sky ride x1 Battle of metro x 4 Congo rapids x 4 Tango x 3 Diablo x 2 El Toro x 4 Bizarro x 2 Harley Quinn x 1 Joker x 1 5/28 Got to hurricane harbor at 10:30 They were open YEAH...!!! Park was empty as it was a cool day. My kids went nuts on all the slides I was beat from the prior days activities so I just laid about the wave pool. Kids told me there was ZERO wait for anything in the park. King cobra was close for the 2nd weekend. I stayed till close and was a restful day at the water park. I transferred to the main park for dinner. Main park was SWAMPED which I expected but died off around 7pm. Managed to get a few rides in not many as the food lines were exceptionally long with all the people. I did however get to see cyborg all lit up and them do some testing on it. I will tell you I hope they are installing barf troughs outside because this looks like a stomach turner. I did manger to talk to one of the ride operator testing the ride. They told me they are waiting for the state to certify the ride hence the date has been pushed back on its released until they can get it certified. They were running a multi-color LED light scheme I am sure they are not going to leave it that way as I see the ground lights surrounding the ride are all RED. I was ko0l to watch and see how the dummy’s where harnessed in. I will post pictures later when I get them off my phone. I think I may also have a video if anyone is interested. Ride count Wave pool (ALL DAY) kids don’t count slides they rode they as well were having a blast. Skull mountain x 4 Justice league x 6 King da ka x2
  4. Opening Day Hurricane Harbor First trip of the Season. I Arrived at the Water park right at 10:25 anticipating confusion with the new membership passes. Looks like they have the first 4 rows blocked off for membership parking. When entering the park, they have added X-ray scanners to the security lines which will speed things up greatly. I am forced to carry my own beverages into the park and care a medial note and card so I normally do not get much hassle at the security check point. This time through I was informed of a change that I could only bring in products that Coca-Cola sponsor (which I find out being this is for medical purposes). I will confirm that later during my next trip and stop by guest relations. The Park was empty and when I mean empty the wave pool only had my group of 5 and another couple until around 1:30pm. I took a quick walk around the park and it looks like they have added plaster beach chairs all over the place. They also made the left side of the Wave pool the members only seating area (these spots must be reserved online the night prior just like the preferred parking at the main park). King Cobra was closed but the other slides and rides in the park were fully operational. I managed to get in a lot of the slides as there was zero wait. They only thing that slowed me down was the flights of stairs to each attraction. We stop to each lunch at 3:00 right before the down pour which closed the park. After lunch we transferred to the main park to finish out our day. See below the slides I conquered my first day Boreas x 2 Eurus x2 Zephyrus x1 Nortus x1 Bada Bing x1 Bada Bang x1 Bada Boom!

    2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    I would like to see another fatman friendly coaster. Something with the same restraint system as Skull mountain. The thrill rides are ko0l and all but the larger guests have limited things to do. Unless they re add the shows

    Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    i have the Diamond Elite plan. I think the drink cup thing is Bogus. I was told by numerous employees this last weekend that they need to check pass's. Due to Cup theft and people abusing the cup refill rules. The 20min time is a little steep. when it hot as heck out i need to wait to Quench my thirst. Waiting to see how hurricane harbor works with the preferred seating.

    Six Flags Great Adventure 5/6

    For me its more about a mobility thing with asthma. I recently had weight loss surgery so i lost almost 250lbs. I find that Skull mountain is not too rough for me.Although at the time being it is the only roller coaster type ride i can fit on.

    Six Flags Great Adventure 5/6

    Well This is the First time i will attempt to catalog my visits to the park. I normally go every Friday night and all day Saturday until Hurricane harbor opens. Then i am there Friday night , Saturday and Sunday. We got to the park at 10:20 am. The parking lot was completely empty. It has been empty the last couple Saturdays but today was far the worse. (i think the chance of showers chased everyone away).I With Virtually no one in the park i got to the ride information building to get my grand daughter measured and pick up my Blue handicap pass in record time. It took longer for me to walk to skull mountain then it did for the line to get on the ride. I managed to ride the ride 15 times in a row with just periodically changing seats until my granddaughter wanted to move on. I did notice on my way to Battle of Met. That they work on the new Cyborg ride looks like it is coming along nicely. after a grueling session of 10 laps of Battle of Met.(Again granddaughter runs my life lol). i manged to convince her that we should eat lunch and go to the safari. It was a nice day a little cool but we decided to walk the long way past El diablo. I noticed that the Taco place(Macho Nacho ) was now open but did not currently have steak or taco salad bowls on its menu as of yet. We ate at our new normal spot at Best of the West. We then as like every Sunday went to the Safari. By this time it was around 1:30/2:00 i expected some line on the safari. I literally walked right to the top of the stairs and on the truck. However this is the first day they had a Photo guy in the line Que to take pics of people against their back drops. We found out during are Safari trip that they now opened Camp adventure and they will now make that a stop once again.. We got off the truck intrigue on where they were going to put the new restaurant in the camp. It looks like next to the right side of the Bathrooms they have opened up and added some buildings and tents that will form the new restaurant. After our mandatory Giraffe feeding. we got back on the truck to finish our day in the park. I have come under the impression that no matter how many times you go threw the safari no two times are the same. When we arrived back into the park we walked to the Looney tunes kids area so my Grand daughter could enjoy the rides. Of coarse being short staffed not all the rides were working. being a regular i often find myself talking to random members of the staff as i know most of them by first name. One of the Black shirted supervisors told me they a lot of there normal workers from Jamaica are having trouble getting their visas this year.I hope She is mistaken as i Will miss my Jamaican photo friend. However, Back on top as the day drug on The people in the back thinned out even further. by dinner time i was walking through the park and going on the adult coasters like i owned it. Zero lines Zero waiting 1/4 full trains. Although i just think i got lucky i know the warm weather willl be here soon and the Vacationers will out weight the locals so i will enjoy while i can. While My Trip was one to remember i did enjoy the fact like it felt like i was the only one in the park. it alowed me to talk to some of the staff i have not seen in years. I will try again this weekend and see what The dice of life brings me
