adult son who is mentally challenged, what can he ride

I have a son who is mentally at age 6-8 and loves sesame street. He is a large young man and is 27. Does Sesame place accomodate for the special needs ? My concerns would be the rides as to size restrictions. He loves ss live and has done the sea world ss breakfast. He is able to transfer from a wheelchair and is mobile. Any help would be appreciated. I am hoping to plan this trip for him but want to make sure it would be worth the expense involved for him to enjoy some of the attractions.

All of the rides will fit an adult. My husband and I rode with our children on the Viper Trail (roller coaster), Grover's World Twirl (teacups), Elmo's Flying Fish (Dumbo-like), Big Bird's Balloon Race, Carousel, Blast-Off and Peek-A-Bug. Plus all of the water-slides, lazy river, and wave pool. My husband went with my son into the nets and Climbs, but said it was tight in a few spots. The only places he'd be excluded from are the dry toddler play areas (Big Bird's Court and Cookie Mountain), Twiddle Tracks, and the toddler splash pool (Rubber Duck Pond).

If you google image search "Sesame Place rides", or the individual ride name, you can see pictures.
