Hello, I am looking into getting a bmx bike but I fear that im to big. I weigh 180 lbs and im 5' 11". I dont wanna buy a bike thats too small and I am looking at anything under 200$. I would mostly be riding freestyle and rarely park. If I could get some help on what bikes to look into that would be great!

There's always the mongoose mode 900, and that would work with your budget. The problem is that you're 5'11" and the top tube on that bike is only 20.5 which could be a bit small for you. Just for comparison, I'm 5'9" and I ride a 21" top tube. Try out a bike with a 20.5" top tube and see how it feels.

And no, you're not to big. I have a friend who's 6'4" and he's better than me. Height wise, size doesn't matter in BMX haha!
