(June 23) -- When most people get in line at Orlando, Fla.'s new Harry Potter theme park, they're worried about the wait -- not their weight.

But according to some Harry Potter lovers, pudgy muggles -- those who weigh about 265 pounds or more -- are getting tossed from line at the most-hyped ride in Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter amusement park.

After personally witnessing a very large woman get stuck on an uphill water slide (the slide went down, then up, then down into the pool, she got stuck on the up part) I'm all for weight restrictions. The next time I went to this water park, they had a scale at the top, in case people didn't care to follow the weight restrictions posted at the beginning of the ride. Seems to have solved the issue!
