    Has anyone else read these articles I dont know if I'll bother going as I dont want to be pulled out of a line because some universal kid thinks I look too large

    Are you too big to ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey? | Orlando Attractions Magazine News

    "There are lots of reports that people do not fit - even standard men with broad shoulders, tall men ( over 6' 3") , Larged bottomed women, beer bellies or big boobies etc. It seems quite a few have not made the seats- and reports that Universal staff are pulling people out of the queue to test them - one woman said she had been pulled three times in the space of one queue as TMs did not believe the previous one had carried out their job properly"

    Oh gosh. I sure hope this isn't true. That's pretty harsh.

    That's just so not good. People are just going to be so embarrassed and being pulled out of the ine by various TM's is really wrong

    From what I have read, it's not even a matter of being overweight. It's just body size. There are people who are going to be far too tall to ride.

    I wonder if they have those test seats out front like they do for most rides. It's embarrassing to try them out but even more embarrassing to be told you can't ride.
