This mom said her trip to Universal Studios was ruined when she couldn’t go on any rides because they weren’t all-inclusive, and experiencing audition seats in front of crowds of no-private people felt like an awkward scene.
Size inclusive applies to much more than just clothing. For TikToker and her dad Summer Len Davis (@summerlendavis), size inclusivity means enjoying a trip to Universal Studios without worrying about whether she’ll be able to ride a roller coaster with her daughter. Davis recently took to TikTok to share a video describing her humiliating experience visiting Universal Studios as a plus-size woman, and many viewers resonated with her story.
The clip opens with Davis addressing the camera while a green screen shot of her image appears in the background.
“I’ll tell you a story about this woman being too fat to fit on any roller coaster at Universal Studios,” Davis says, pointing to herself in the photo.
Before breaking up the situation at the amusement park, Davis told viewers, “I’m under no illusions that I’m skinny.”
However, she explains, “What I teach my children and what I teach the team of people that I work with is that a body like that is capable of climbing mountains and doing good things, even capable of doing strong blood work.”
“What I don’t like is taking my daughter on a girls’ trip for her 13th birthday and not being able to spend time with her,” Davis shares. Davis claims her daughter had to ride the rollercoaster alone because she was “too fat” to fit in.
Davis, who loves roller coasters, says she strives to teach her daughter self-love, acceptance, and the understanding that “everyone’s body is capable of doing the things they want to do.”
Through tears, Davis explained that she had reached the point where she chose not to ride any rides. “I didn’t want to be humiliated in front of hundreds of people sitting on the test bench.”
After stating that she never had this problem with rides at Six Flags or Disney Parks, Davis said, “I was very disappointed with Universal and the message this ride sent to my daughter.”
Davis finished the video by asking Universal to move the test seats to a private area instead of having guests use them in front of everyone – an experience she found “insulting”.
Viewers, who’ve been through similar experiences, took to the comments to thank Davis for sharing her story.
Honestly, I’m so glad you posted this, even though I’m sure it was hard. One user commented on this.
“Not many people talk about this… I literally cried because I couldn’t [go on] The Harry Potter ride,” one TikToker shared.
“It’s very frustrating. And why can’t they put all the test benches together in a room near the entrance where there is privacy?” asked one model.
Fortunately, by sharing her story, Davis is helping others by reminding them that they are not alone and that their struggles are valid.
