Thrill Rides

mrswhitecastle posted:
We went to Six Flags last weekend, and discovered both girls are tall enough to ride most roller coasters and other thrill rides. The minimum height requirement was 42" for one coaster and 48" for most others. There are only a few roller coasters they couldn't ride - the minimum was 54".


Do you think there should be a minimum age requirement to ride thrill rides? Do you/would you let your child ride based on height alone? How old do you think a child should be to ride?

I would base it on my child's height and maturity. Just because a child is tall enough to go on a ride doesn't mean they should. My son is tall enough to go on most rides but he doesn't like them. DD isn't quite tall enough but loves going on the ones she can.
