    Suggestions for Splash's front-seat height restriction

    Suggestions for Splash Mountain front-seat height restriction. (min. 60")
    Why can't they glue a bean-bag or something like in there to cushion the concave compartment?
    Wouldn't that solve the injury isue with youngsters? While still providing a place for knees to go for adults?
    It's not rocket science here.

    The problem isn't a bump on the back of the head, from what was described to me, the problem has more to do with tweaking/pinching/cracking neck and back muscles, etc. on the inside of the compartment. A bean-bag doesn't help in a situation where you have a small body crammed into a space it's not supposed to be.

    pretty much what they are going to do... but takes approvals from many diffrent levels before they can start modifiying the logs. Give it a few months and the 60 inch rule will be gone.

    Re: Suggestions for Splash's front-seat height restriction

    I asked a CM, he said that they "had a few bloody-noses" an that's why the restriction went into effect.

    We solved it a couple times by asking for the back 4 seats, this still allowed my youngest to sit most forward, one time the gave a log to ourselves, then he was in front (so to speak). One of the benefits of going when its cooler out (57-62­­) no problem getting right on Splash and GRR (especially in the AM).
