While heading on GRR we saw a mother and son at the height check. He had about a 1/2 inch of hair and was still barley under 42". The mother was freaking out at the CM because he would not let him on. I eventually saw her go off in a huff without him riding. The CM handled it quite well and appeared correct, because he was a bit short.
But then over in Redwood Creek at the Smoke Jumpers(??). Another CM brought a girl over and told the other CM that she had checked it already and she was tall enough. The other CM at the end still wanted to verify and for about 2-3 minutes they got the girl to do just about everything to hit the height requirement and eventually the CM that was there said OK. Since I was too far away I could not see the actual height I have to assume that she did eventually make it, although it looked more like the other CM was trying to get her on. To me if a ride has a height requirement it is there for a reason and would wonder if that is something a CM and Parent would really want to chance. And if something happened wouldn’t the CM who let on an under height child be ultimately responsible, even though the parents should know better.
