My husband is 6'3" with a long torso and he is wondering if he will fit in the seats on this ride and other rides with shoulder bars. He is smooshed while riding most roller coasters at amusement parks. His knees and shoulders are always sore afterwards.

I doubt it's a problem. I'm six-one, and I've never sensed I was close to being too large. I manage to stow my pack at my feet, too. The restraint system is properly snug, but it probably feels snug to folks substantially shorter.
Disney's design philosophy is to embrace people of a wider range of sizes and shapes than is typical in the amusement industry. They're thinking, "Everyone in the family," rather than "Teens and young adults."

My DH is 6'5". He has never had a problem. (He is also fairly lean). He says he has spent his life needing to get into interesting positions to fit into things. Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary for him at WDW.
My husband is only 6 feet but has a long torso, and Rockin Roller Coaster hurts his shoulders. This is the one Disney coaster he will ride only one or 2 times in a row. He loves the ride but just finds that the restraint is a bit low.
