Does anyone have any info on the accuracy of the height-check posts that are in front of the rides? When it says, 48" to ride, is the stick set at exactly 48" or is it a bit higher to take shoes into account?
Basically, I have a kid that is a 1/4" too short for RnRC, but is just over 48" in shoes. Has anyone taken a measuring tape to the parks with them?

:lol:

Yes, it's 48" exactly but they do allow the kids to be in heels, so if your child is a 1/4 inch off, just insert a lift or something in their shoe. If they were an inch or two off, then I'd be concerned because the height requirements are there for safety reasons.

only 1/2" - no problem; have her wear a hat and when she steps under the bar just teach her to instantly rise up on her tiptoes for a brief instant and she will pass ;-) ;

Thanks for the replies. I've always wondered about that.

As for the rack... that's a good idea. Never thought of that! :lol:
