Strict Height Restrictions

Saturday, January 13, 2001 3:02 PM
What amusement parks have the most strict height restrictions? What amusement parks do not?

Height Restrictions(Requirements): How tall you need to be to ride a roller coaster or thrill ride.
Example: You have to be 54 inches tall to ride Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England, but you only have to be 48 inches tall to ride Steel Force at Dorney Park.

Well I know for sure that SFO is about 180' to 190'(SUE is rumored to be 188'). But the SWO side newly accuired SF property has NO ride restrictions what so ever. I think its manly location and what the city wants. For example SFO is mostly in Bainbrigde Township which is very strict. SWO is in Aurora which has stated it has no restrictions and wil be very easy to get along with.

I am confused, is this topic about height to ride a certain ride or the height limit of city the park/ride is in? *** This post was edited by Andrew on 1/13/2001. ***

I think we're talking about guest heights here, not rides. And by the way, Ohio townships and cities are zoned to death, and I'm quite certain that Aurora, like anyplace else in the state, does have zoning restrictions on height.

I don't know what you're talking about with height restrictions not being strict at CF parks. Cedar Point is pretty notorious for checking shoes and such.

I have noticed that similiar or even identical rides have different height restrictions. Take the Demon at both PGA and SFGAm. The PGA Demon is 48 inches while the SFGAm version is 42 inches. They are both identical for the most part but I guess it just depends on the park.

I noticed at SFO many people below the height restriction were allowed to ride...
