A United Kingdom amusement park has increased the seat size on a popular rollercoaster to accommodate larger individuals, according to The Daily Mail.

According to the report, Thorpe Park added the larger seats to its popular Nemesis Inferno rollercoaster after an "embarrassing" number of people were turned away because they were too big. The park also plans to introduce larger seats on other rides, the story says.
