Something similar was part of my weight loss motivation too. A few years ago I barely fit on Forbidden Journey (and earlier on that same day, they actually told me I didn’t because it didn’t click 3 times), and I couldn’t fit on Dueling dragons. Overall I was just uncomfortable and felt terrible from the lack of working out and eating poorly. Went from 310 down to 190 in a little over a year and haven’t looked back since. It’s nice not having to worry if you’ll fit or be comfortable on a theme park ride or not.
Thank you. This is a great article. This is one way that i have found to lose weight! bit.ly/3yhwTNt

So Bobby…How did you lose your weight?
So IAW Universal Studios rules, Hagrid can’t even ride the attraction that is named after him. Poor Hagrid.
This is my non-scale goal, fitting on all the Universal rides! I’m 58 lbs down since 2/15/21 and am gong to keep going!!
Whatever your incentive is, is good for your health. Congratulations
It would be a bit more helpful to know height, weight, and waist size before and after to be able to estimate some of my family’s ability to ride on our upcoming trip. Can you please provide that information?
Sorry if this a double post, my first one isn’t showing.

After a recent first-time visit, I was shocked to see the number of people unable to ride. Not all of these people were morbidly obese; some were men with large frames who appeared to be a healthy weight. Universal has set an unreasonable limitation on many of their rides that excludes a great many people. Shame on you Universal! (Note: I was able to ride all rides so this isn’t bitterness talking.)
I had an anxiety attack on the Simpsons ride when the bar came down too tight and I could barely breathe. I have never had an experience like this before on any rides anywhere. I am about 50 lbs from my ideal weight but that should still not have caused this issue to happen.
Stop it with the Universal should be ashamed. We have just been conditioned in the US to believe people that only people who are morbidly obese are overweight. The rides are designed like they are for a safety reason…. Ride designers design rides based upon average build with a threshold in both directions. If they were to supersize the ride harnesses to accommodate the people “with large frames” they wouldn’t be as safe for those with healthy weights.
