THORPE PARK has increased the size of its rollercoaster seats to cater for the larger customer.
The Surrey theme park‘s Nemesis Inferno attraction now has specially-designed super-size seats after so many people had to be turned away from the ride because they were too overweight to fit on it.
“The reality is that we are super-sizing – and that’s a fact we’re embracing,” said Mike Vallis, Divisional Director at Thorpe Park.
“Why shouldn’t people be comfortable when they are enjoying a day out with their friends or family?”
Visitors with a chest size of over 51 inches are asked, via a sign, to queue for the new jumbo seats, which feature two buckle straps instead of the usual one.
Thorpe Park plans to introduce super-size seats on its other rides in the coming months.
