Was this always the case or did these height requirements change after the death on the one SROS? I just find it odd because Millennium Force's height requirement is 48" and no max height.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
I only noticed the max height resetriction of 76 inches last season but Peabody's right it's for clearance issues...the entrance & exit to the helices sure make for some good handchoppers.
I think it's because of clearance issues--at least on the ones at SFDL & SFA. The exit of the first helix and entrance to the second come close to supports. I guess they don't want people to reach out and touch them. Of course, if you were under the height limit and had long arms, I guess this is a moot point.
As for SFNE's SROS, I don't even know why. *** Edited 7/26/2006 9:45:08 PM UTC by rablat5***
coastin' since 1985
I wont even bother anymore with those old style trains... Err, any of the ROS. Poor height requirements, awful and uncomfortable "shin" holders (bruise mania), and well, im 6'5" or so and will be "too tall".
Millennium Force was 54 inches and changed to 48" for the 2002 season. The reason I say that is because I have a discovering channel video and the ride op interviewed was checking heights and the requirement was 54 inches, and that was filmed in 01'.
The seats WERE NOT changed, however.
