Universal studios - sorry son your too short ...??


As a parent I think - kids are just punishing us for what we did as children ....lol

Now with that said - here I am measuring my kids hieght, wondering if my efforts in planning for a great family dream vacation will be crushed if my son is - to put it mildly "short". You know - who really thinks about hieght when your planning a trip to some theme park...

Ok, yes I've been to Walt Disney world, magic kingdom, Universal Studios - I know some of the rides have hieght restrictions. But Really, I don't think of that until I've already paid and I'm walking thru the park to get on that spicific ride I've heard of. I really hate it when my son has to sit it out - becuase he is... um ... short.

So while I was doing my reasearch trying to choose between "Walt Disney" or "Universal Studios" - I noticed that all the cool rides at Universal Studios Island of Adventures have hieght ristrictions. Check it out:

I really think my son would love the Popeye Water Ride - it looks like so much fun and the boy is a fish - loves anything that has to do with water [ unlike me ]. He can spend hours just playing outside while the water sprinklers run.
