Well, my daughter had TWO growth spurts this year. Last year, she barely made the height requirement to ride BTM, Splash and Soarin. Now, she's over 44 inches! Me and hubby were checking out height requirements on WDW's rides, and saw that Everest's level is 44 inches. So, we are considering letting her ride. A little backstory...this child is a thrill rider. She adores BTM, and Splash. And she loves the HUGE wooden roller coaster here in town. Even I can't ride that. But, her and her father LOVE it. I know there's no loops in Everest, which is the only reason I am even considering it. Anything with loops is off limits for her. But, I am still wondering if this is something she'd be okay on. I've only rode three times....and will ride again once we get there, and then make my final decision. what do ya'll think?
