Does anybody know common height restrictions on fair rides?

Height restrictions for all the scary rides. Like the Skymaster, Extreme, and the Zipper? My seven year old really wants to ride them with me and she is 49". I cannot find the info on the net.

  • Some are 48", but it is becoming more common for the height requirement to be 52", depending on the ride

  • At our local fair it varies by ride. Some go as low as 42" and some as high as 54". It's marked individually on each sign.

  • I'd say 48" and 52" - depends on the ride.
