I haven't ever ridden Barnstormer because I've always been with adults. But I'm hoping to bring a 5 or 6 year old soon so I want to do try it next visit just to see the intensity etc. Will I be out of place as a solo adult? TIA.

It’s definitely not for larger adults. I am just over 6 feet and about 175 lbs, and can ride it but it is a bit of a tight squeeze.

    We always ride! It's short, but very fun! DH and I do sit separately, though. Those seats are tight.

    Not a fun ride for 2 adults in the same car. It was very tight and cramped. Not a bad little rollercoaster, but clearly made for small kids and maybe one adult in a car.

    I'm curious about this as well. How does it compare to other rides? Good for a teen who likes BTMRR but not Everest?

    We ride it everytime, plus you can get a good look at the progress of the Tron coaster. Don't worry about out of place.....I'm a Dad of three and I ride Dumbo.....alone. Haha.

    I'm not a fan, but ride it with my daughter when she requests too. I'm looking forward to my first adult only trip so I don't have to ride it.

    It's a fun little coaster. Much tamer than BTMRR. My daughter loved it when she was 5. She has not liked most other coasters.

    I love Barnstormer! It has become our default 1st ride over the last few years and we all love it!

    I like BTMRR and still won't do Everest as an adult.
    Barnstormer is fine for the person who likes a more tame ride, but I would never wait for it or make it a focus of my day because it is incredibly short. (We did manage to walk on several times in a row one morning with am EMH)
