Hey there guys, next week i ma taking my little brother to Hershey Park, and he is right around the 48inch height. I was woundering if anyone knew if there was anywhere in the park i could go to get him a stamp that says we is 48" so that if we is alowed to right Lightning Racer, he can go right over and ride Wildcat, and not have 2 peoples thoughts on his height. any thing would help.

I can help you out there. On your way through the park, go to the rides office. They're located by the kiddie swings, underneath the monorail track.
They'll be able to take an official measurement and give him a handstamp with whatever height category he fits in. When you go to the rides, just show them the handstamp when they got to measure him. That way there will be no hassle.

There's another way and some propaganda that goes along with it. On your way into the park, you'll pass by height measurements based on candybars (yes I know it's weird, but hey it's Hershey). At the entrance to each ride they'll have a candy category showing which rides he can get on. For example, he might only be a Twizzler in height, and that would be indicated at each ride. If he's not a Twizzler he doesn't ride. Of course, they always have the standby line attendants to take measurements also.

Just got back from HP and you say that you brother is right around 48"? Is he over or just under? Reason I ask is Hershey is very lazy about measuring heights. My daughter who is just over only got measured twice, Lightning Racer and Wild Mouse. I would definatly check if they have a official height so there is no question.
Also on their map it says Sidewinder is a Twizzler (54") but at the entrance is a Hershey Bar(48"). *** Edited 7/25/2004 3:26:36 AM UTC by Iggy ACE***
The Golden Rule - Try it once and if you don't like you don't have to go on again!

he is right under it, but i am not sure he might be right at it, he didn't have anything on his feet when i looked.
Thanks for all your help guys, i will try to get a TR up when i get back.
