So, in light of the death at WDW this week on Mission: Space and the posting I read on another board of someone using platform shoes to get their daughter on Screamin', I have to wonder about the requirements.
The kid who died on M:S was tall enough, but he was 4 years old, and the stories don't say if he was skinny or not, as that can have an effect with the high Gs. Should there also be a weight requirement?
The kid who wears big shoes to get on a ride is being put at risk, too, because she is her actual body isn't long enough to be safe. Should CMs be watching for such things?
I bring all this up because my 4 year old is tall enough for ToT and Mullholland Madness, but he's done neither. He's just declined to do Mulholland, but I won't let him on ToT yet. Being tall enough isn't enough for that ride. You have to be able to deal with it. On the same note, I had some regrets after taking my 2 year old on Matterhorn last week. Tall enough, but she didn't understand that the Snowman was fake.
I blame the parent for not being safe with her kid at WDW, but I wonder what can be done by the parks to help with this?
