Another of the attraction’s critics, a Twitter user named Anna, wrote: “Can we discuss how in my older age I wouldn’t have been able to fit in Mario Kart? A 40″ waist line is roughly a size 20. Are you kidding me? ? ?me @UniStudios? It’s a DARK RIDE.”
“You can’t have a mario kart ride that Bowser and DK wouldn’t even have permission on. Silly,” wrote a third user named Zaha.
Postcast host Matt Mazany also weighed in on the matter on Twitter, writing: “Trust me when I say ‘lose a little weight’ is not a novel suggestion.

It doesn’t seem ethical.”
TikToker David Vaughn put his followers on notice about the size restriction on the video-sharing platform, saying. “Unfortunately, the new Mario Kart Bowser’s Challenge attraction comes with a warning that guests whose waist measures at least 40 inches or more cannot be accommodated on the ride.”
