But Iím a UK size 18 and Iíve read there are size restrictions on some rides, so wondered if there were any of the rides I might struggle to fit on?

Iím a size 18 and can get on call the ride. I think it depends where you carry your weight. Mine is around the belly and chest and I have no problems. Most rides have a test chair out side if you have any doubts.

Is this your first trip to Florida? I ask because a UK 18 is pretty diddy out there.

I've been when I was a size 22-24 and was able to get on everything I carry my weight on my tummy - im now a slimmer 16-18 and no problems at Universal.

TBF I have not had any issues with fitting on any rides.

I'm a generous size 20+
... I managed everything at Universal last year 🎢
A few rides I needed the 'special' seat that was for people with larger proportions 🫣 but managed absolutely everything.
You will be fine 😊

Youíll be fine. I fit no issues at a 18-20
Most of the bigger rides do have test seats outside of the ride too just in case you wanted to double check

Weight is generally only an issue at Volcano Bay where they actually weigh you before you ride some of the slides!

LOL. No disrespect to our American friends who I love but the average Brit is 10 stone lighter than the average American
