Hi everyone...I joined this site just to ask this question.
So number of years ago, I had to do a walk of shame off of Prowler at Worlds of Fun. I didn't even try to ride roller coasters for years after that, despite how much I love them, out of not wanting to experience that again.
I've since used that as motivation, and have lost a significant amount of weight, though I am still overweight and am working on losing more.
This summer, I rode every roller coaster at Worlds of Fun - victory! However, I still required the larger seats on Patriot.
I have a family trip to Adventureland coming up and really really want to go on Monster, but am a little nervous, as WoF has no roller coasters of this type.
I currently wear a women's size 18/20 and am 5'10".
Has anyone been a larger rider, or been with a larger rider, on Monster who can tell me what sizes did or did not fit? Just wanting to avoid embarrassment if possible but still ride if possible!
I have deferred to the expertise of my wife, and with her permission to share all this, she says you'll probably have no trouble on Monster. She is a size 16 and has no difficulties at all on Monster and likely at an 18/20 you'll be just fine.
Thank you so much! That gives me a lot more confidence. I had been worried after googling around and seeing a report where "multiple" people ended up not able to fit to ride Monster. There was no mention of their exact size though, so this helps!
I would do eight hours on Saturday to be honest. Most of the crowds head over to Adventure Bay, which I highly recommend. There are so many attractions that are worth riding. All the roller coasters are pretty great (except for Dragon) and many are worth reriding, but four out of the six coasters only run one train. There are so many flat rides and water rides worth riding, many of them are rare: their Sawmill Splash, Falling Star, Der Flinger, Lighthouse, and their Sky Ride. Storm Chaser and Space Shot are both really fun thrill rides. Adventure Bay is worth visiting, too. It's a really nice waterpark. The park overall has great charm to it. I do recommend going for eight hours. Back in 2016, I spent two days in Des Moines, and I spent all of those two days at Adventureland.
I was at the park yesterday and noticed that dragon is running a five car train instead of the normal six and it got me thinking. How much more time does dragon have left before it is scrapped? It already has low ridership in comparison to every other coaster in the park, very bad reliability, and it’s surely expensive to maintain since they have a mechanic onsite underneath the station at all times.
