Well, it's official: I can't ride Deja Vu. It has just been announced that you have to be under 6'4" to ride deja vu. I am too tall. This company never fails to piss me off. I am so stinking tired of rides that tall people can't ride. It's flat out ridiculous. It is really getting old, and you'd think that in an era where people are taller, companies would strive to build rides everyone can ride. My brother can't ride anything Vekoma makes anymore (SLC, Deja Vu, flying coasters...) It is just plain stupid. At least X doesn't have a maximum height restricition. (for now )

I've heard riding as a taller than reccommended height person on an invert is pretty scary, I was looking at that Anaconda(pics) one day(South Africa) and it looks like it would be a guatanteed amputation if you were too tall, although I thought too tall was rare, I know now it's not. That's sad, maybe in the future they can have inserts or something to the seats, kind of like with the extra belts on Volcano for larger guests, kind of raise your clearance, so to speak.
I totally agree. I'm 6 foot 2, and there are many ride that I am very uncomfortable on. If there are regulations for handicap access, what makes tall people any different? (I'm not saying that tall people are handicapped, just that everyone should be able to ride)
I can hear it now: "Sorry, this coaster is not made for you. Everyone else, but not you."
Hey S:ROS at SFA has a max height limit too because of the first helix. Hey you might not be able to ride some roller coasters, but you can play basketball!:) (If someone asks you as a tall person if you play basketball, just say "No, do you play minature golf?)
