I don't know how similar the rides are, but I am 6'6", and I can stand up on Riddler's Revenge. However, I stand up straight, and the shoulder harness is up as high as it can go. One more inch, and I would have to slouch a little. My bro has to slouch just a little bit, and he is 6'11".
I think it has to do with your body shape, mostly. People who are taller and find most of their height below their waist (such as me) have a harder time with the harness design. Those who are tall and have a larger upper body will fit better.

My husband is 6', and he doesn't have a problem with the height, just the design of the harness: it really isn't made too well for the broad-chested, broad-shouldered types. But that can be a problem with any OTSR.

I find that the seat is too wide to fit between my thighs and the space between the seat and the 'armrest' is too narrow. I can compensate for that by putting the seat lower, but because the shoulder bar pivot is attached to the same assembly, that means the top of the shoulder bar is far too low for me. That wasn't a problem because there is a notch in the shoulder bar ratchet that does accommodate me. It puts the front of the bar out forward slightly, but even at that the shoulder bar digs into my shoulders. Trouble is, when the safety belt was added, the strap was left too short to allow for this position, so I now have to put the seat slightly higher and the shoulder bar lower just to get the belt to fasten...so instead of "slightly painful" on the tops of my shoulders, the ride is now "excruciatingly painful" on both the shoulders and thighs. That's before the train even leaves the station and I figure it's not worth it.
I'm 6'4" and had no problem with Mantis. I don't know if you guys got in the "compact sized" row or what? -D ----------------------------------- "Sit back and hold on tight, cause the Mamba is about to strike."
Since CP added the seat belts, are they / have they added the different size rows? I know that some inverted coasters have different seats in certain rows to accommodate guests of different sizes, I was wondering if they had or will do this. I think it would be a good idea.
