You'd be surprised how many comments you hear from people wanting Soap Box Racers back at Knott's alone.

I'm thinking the 42" minimum is a selling point in today's industry when 48" seems to be standard for "family" rides.

Yes, I know of those comments. But that is a very small group, and its for one park.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's fun to see it come back into the industry. We'll just have to wait and see who, if any one, buys the ride.
