I see this question asked in many planning groups: should I try to cheat my child’s height if they are an inch or two below the requirement?

The answer is absolutely not. These requirements were implemented to ensure the safety of your child, rather than to ruin your day when a child is too short to enjoy a particular ride.

Why take a chance of epic tragedy when you could simply wait a year or two?
