Cedar Point Shoulders too big for harnesses, only partial refund was given after hours of humilation. Sandusky Ohio
My girlfriend and I went to Cedar Point on Sunday, May 11th, 2014 - their opening weekend. My goal was to ride all the rollercoasters.
I'm a big guy, 6'1, 300lbs, and I've never before had an issue regarding size, ever. I'm fairly fit, was in football all through-out middle/high school, and have maintained similiar size since then.
To cut to the chase, I could not fit into any ride that had a shoulder harness. They simply would not come down over my shoulders, no matter how hard I tried.
We walked down the entire right side of the park trying each roller coaster and getting humilated at every single one- always the shoulder harnesses. Any ride that goes vertical, upside, rolls- anything like that uses a shoulder harness.
Actually a little ashamed to admit this, but it made me want to cry- it was humilating to put it mildly. I've never felt bad about my phsyical appearance before.
I went to the vistor's center at the front, waited for a manager and asked for a refund. When I told her, she looked like she was going to cry- at least she was sympathtic. She couldn't believe I didn't fit in the rides, because honestly I don't look it at all.
She gave us a refund for our tickets, but would not give us a refund for the things we purchased in the park, or the parking cost. In total, $40. 2 sets of eye glass holders $5, $10 for sunscreen, $5 for locker rental, $15 for parking, and $5 for a lidless coke.
So my trip to Cedar Point cost me $40, 2 hours of my time, some sun burn, and the worst humilation/series of humilations I've ever experienced in all my life, and upsetting my girlfriend to no end- and on top of that, ruined one of my precious vacation days.
