How old for USH?
Visiting LA in January and was planning to take my 6yo son so Universal Studios. It was mentioned in another thread that he may not be old enough to enjoy it. He's fairly mature for his age but certainly not fearless as some kids seem to be.
How old do people think a kid should be for USH? Are there any rides in particular (other than the mummy obviously) that they would avoid?
Besides the Mummy, he should be able to ride most rides unless he has a phobia of dinosaurs. The Walking Dead attraction may also be a bit too scary, but other than that, 6 years old should definitely be old enough for Universal. Only problem may be if he is too short to ride something
Since I recommended against Universal Studios Hollywood for a 6 year old, I should probably share my reasoning and let you make a more informed decision based on that and the word of others. After all, every 6 year old is different.
Eh, probably not. My cousin went to USH when he was 6 and he couldn't ride anything cause he didn't meet any of the height requirements. Below are the height requirements for the major USH rides
Thanks for your awesome in-depth responses, definitely food for thought. On TPI is has Forbidden Journey as having a 40 inch height restriction, not 48, so I thought he may be OK for that (he should be about 45-6 inches tall when we go so most others he'll meet the requirements.
I mean, it all depends on what interests your son. There might be plenty for him to do or nothing at all.
Take him to Legoland.
The thing about Legoland is, although your son would probably enjoy the heck out of it, it's not really in the L.A. area. How far are you willing to drive?
We're already planning to do Legoland, so it's not really an either/or scenario.
