Just dont blow it up so its rock hard ,blow the balloon up till its somewhat firm ,just leave a little extra room for the balloon to expand and you should be fine

Easily
I weigh more than you and it supports my whole body without any problem.
Further more the GL1200 balloon is very durable and strong.
I float on a lake on a GL1200 balloon that is not fully inflated in a seated position and the balloon can be used several times.
I have a thread on this site called FLOATING ON A GL1200 that desribe how i do this, you might wanna check it out.

A GL1200 will easily support your weight, even slightly overinflated. They're really tough balloons.

I absolutely love GL1200's
Ive never had any problem getting one to support my weight but i am a little concerned about their life span. Mines starting to feel a bit thin when uninflated and almost has a feathery texture in some places

It will easily take your weight. If u are scared, lay down on it and spread your body over the loon. You can feel how it stretches and works beneath you. And the more even u distribute the weight, the less likely is a pop

It will support you easily, I have a couple of them, and I love them!

I had only one pop on me before, but that was a stupidity from my side, it popped on touching a sharp end of a chair I had back then. Needless to say that chair isn't close to any of my balloons anymore!

I'm 6'3" and 264 lbs, and it can take a beating from me, even when it is a bit hard inflated so go for it

I suspect very loud. You're talking about a balloon that's between 6ft and 8ft in length, and between 1ft and 2ft in circumference. The pop isn't going to be anything tiny, that's for certain!

But why would you waste such a big balloon, and just pop it?! They're not cheap balloons to buy in the first place!
