Too Tall for some rides???

Sunday, December 9, 2001 1:37 PM
     I am alomost 6'6" and I can barely squeeze into some rides.  I recently heard that De javu @ SFGAm has a height limit of 6'5" is this true???  I like all of the Intamin and B&M rides cuz they have a lot of leg room!!!

I think you'll find most of the Premier and Gerstlauer trains uncomfortable, they don't allow much in terms of leg room...SOB, JJ, FOF...how DID you fit in Speed: The Ride?

The limit on Deja Vu is, in fact, 6'4".  However, I'm 6'4" and have never been measured (or even been given a second glance).  I think if you just waited in line and hurried to your seat nobody would notice.  Just slouch a bit when you're waiting in line. :-)

I am 6'10" and I am usually uncomfortable in Arrow trains. They are entirely too small, doesn't stop me. I think that people would realize that people are actually getting taller.

I'm only 6'0" and can barely get my legs into FOF's new design with lap bars. I had to be forced in by 2 ride ops and then needed help to get out at the end.

I'm 6'3" and I fit into all the coasters I've ridden so far.  Some of them were tight squeezes but I fit.  S:  RoS at SFNE has a limit of 78" and I believe I'm 75".  I like my height and I hope I stay at it.

At SFMM the actual signs at Deja Vu read that 6'3" is the max height. I can take a picture of it next time I go.

With shoes on, I am about 6'4"and a half, and I HAVE been measured for that ride. I took off my shoes and slouched just a bit and I made it on. That was on opening day, so maybe they were a bit more strict then. But if you are WAY ovet 6'3", then you WILL be denied a ride, I saw them turning away a few people that were 6'6" or taller.

I've seen way too many not be able to fit into the new premier lap bars on FOF and Chiller.  It's quite a shame.

The Limit is there for your safety remeber.Unfortanately no coaster can accomadate all people considering they need to accomadate people who are 54" and people who are 80".

Luckily I am only 5'11" but the same goes for people with larger dimesions teh other way too, My brother has had some very tight fits on coasters.  Not only are people getting taller but we are getting fatter too.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

The thing is people growing out, can do something about it! But us tall ones are screwed. I really think they should design rides for people up to 7 ft. Parks will get those guests at least a few times each year.
-----------------
So what is better? SFMM or CP? I don't care! They both have 29 coasters between them that they build so we can have a good time!
