Cedar Point ride height sign from the 70's

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 12:24 PM

Back in the 70's Cedar Point used one of those "you must be this tall to ride" signs in front of most rides. The board featured a blonde haired boy with bangs that covered his eyes, and the height indicator was his pointer finger on his outstretched arm. I want to say he was wearing a red and white striped shirt with blue shorts and black shoes if memory serves. Does anyone have a picture of it??

I remember the ones on Pointbuzz but the one I am looking for is from before that. The JR. Gemini one is close, but the artwork was a little more simple, and as I mentioned you could not see his eyes. Thank you for the suggestion though.

I find the Jr. Gemini sign pretty disturbing. Looks like the kid made a friend with something he found in his mom's nightstand.

And that Stormtrooper ripoff for Magnum! I remember those old signs. Love the witch!

Looking at these old signs got me thinking, so I looked up the current height guide online and found these changes... Witches Wheel was 60" now 54", Super Himalaya was 46" now 52" and Scrambler was 46" now 48".

This has to be one of the funniest comments ever! Nice job Vater.

Posted this on PointBuzz. Guess I'm a little behind with my CoasterBuzz reading.

If you look in the bottom right corner of this photo, you can see the sign in question.

Here's a closer (but not clearer) look.

There are a ton of great photos from the 1970s on The Lost Coaster.
