“This ride uses safety restrictions that may limit some guests from riding body shape and size,” the instructions read. “Guests with a waistline of at least 40″ or larger may not be seated on the ride and are encouraged to try a trial seat provided at the ride’s entrance to ensure their ability to ride.”
