Now big fat bloaters can ride the Nemesis at Thorpe Park
That’s because leading theme park Thorpe Park has fitted super-sized seats to their Nemesis ride in order to let corpulent bloaters get their kicks as well as those of us who haven’t dedicated years of our lives towards angrily shovelling pies and cakes into our head-holes.
The two new seats are designed for people with a chest size of 51 inches or more and are situated near the front of the Nemesis. Thorpe Park say that their other rides will be equipped with ‘fat seats’ (our phrase, not theirs) over the next year.
With 17% of men and 21% of women classed as obese, Thorpe Park say that they are accommodating to the needs of our increasingly swollen nation. Divisional director Mike Vallis says: “The reality is that we are super-sizing – and that’s a fact we’re embracing. Why shouldn’t people be comfortable when they are enjoying a day out with their friends or family?”
Hopefully the porky punters will refrain from their non-stop compulsive gorging before getting on the ride, meaning that fellow riders won’t be showered in their vomit at the height of the ‘excitement’.
