First Maximum Height Requirement in Disney History!Tokyo Disney Resort: A member reports the height requirement for Raging Spirits,the brand new roller coaster in Tokyo DisneySea.
From Adriel TjokrosaputroI just go 'home' from other website and I've got that Raging Spirits has some troubles.The height requirement!The minimum height is about 46 inches or 117 cm.But for the first time in Disney history,they put a maximum height!So,beware for they who reaches 195 cm or 77 inches,'cause you won't be able to ride this one.

So,is it for another reason to make the maximum height?Is it for safety?

From Anthony MurphyIt is very interesting that they finally put a height limit on a ride, however, that is still extremly tall and I do not think it will affect anybody since I believe only basketball players fit that criteria. Having a height max is not a new thing. In Island of Adventure (Universal) in Florida, there is a dueling inverted roller coaster (really fun!). Because you come so close to the other roller coaster, you need to be betewwn a certian height so that you do not hit others. I think Raging Sprits is either dueling or there are certain areas where 77 inches is the height of the ceiling! I would love to hear more info about this ride! It should be fine! You can ride it! (Unless you are a tall basketball player, then I am sorry!)

From Michael Patalano6'5" is tall but not extremely tall. Also, if you want to be technical...the playground in Magic Kingdom's Toontown Fair has a maximum height (of I believe 40"). :)

From Jen Lonbom6'5 is tall. But I know at least two people that tall it could affect a few people.

From Gareth HurfordHeight limit on Duelling Dragons? I'm 6ft6 and have never seen a height restriction on this ride, nor ever been asked.

In regards to the coasters coming close to each other? Your legs alone would need to be about 2 metres in length for any chance of you hitting the other people! Bad romour. (For all who object, I live in Orlando & am an annual passholder so I visit a lot.)
USF & IOA are extremely safe, except for the evil Back to the future ride!!
