Questions for others who have been to waterparks (six flags in particular)

Just earlier today me and my brother have agreed to buy season passes to six flags to go with him and other family members on the weekends this summer. My brother then asked me the dreaded question of how much do i weight because he wanted to go to a few attractions with me that had weight limits.I wanted to be honest with him and tell him straight up that I'm 320 pounds but it was as if my mouth forced me to lie by telling him 302(As if that was going to make much of a difference to his reaction looking back on it).

The reason I'm bringing this up is because I wanted to ask everyone on FA about their experiences with attractions at waterparks(Six flags in particular)

Do they weight you with a scale before you go in one or do they just judge your weight by your appearance?

If they do use a scale,is it for everyone else to see or very discrete between you and the employee?

P.S Last time I went to a water park was when I was 10 and I dont remember anything

I haven't been to a water park in a few but seriously doubt they weigh people.

I would check on the water park’s website. They should be pretty clear about what the restrictions are. I also seriously doubt they have scales out though.

There might be some rides where you’d want to pay attention to height/weight restrictions for safety reasons. Mass and velocity are real things. But most of the park is open to most people, I’m sure.

Usually, rides go by if you can fit into them instead of weight. I know that some rides have a weight limit, but those are rare.

In the context of Six Flags, I found this online:

Hey Theme Park enjoyer here. Some water parks will quietly weigh you but others will weigh you with a scale. Six Flags is notorious for not being plus size inclusive unfortunately. They have a whole lot more issues with guest services being awful and rides not fitting anyone who is a 2x and up usually. However body dimensions and weight distributions do matter.

I haven’t been to 6 flags but I have been to places known for their rides and in my experience it was all if the harness could close my chest wouldn’t allow it to close so I had to sit out on most of the rides the good news is that there’s ton of fair food and plenty of places to sit and stuff but then again idk bout 6 flags. So unless you plan on eating for a day in fair grounds and waiting for your friends who can ride rides it’s not gonna be worth it for you, unless your don’t have a big chest
