Does anyone know what the height min will be for outlaw run?
A man once said, "Nothing ever dies. It just comes back in another form." Then, he died.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Outlaw run is twisty, and somebody is intimidated by it. Coincidence?

I'm honestly surprised that the height restriction for Outlaw Run is 48 inches. It seems like such an intense coaster, and I can't imagine small children being tossed around on it. Well I guess Silver Dollar City is always trying to find ways to let families ride the attractions together, which probably explains the requirement on this. Isn't Powder Keg 43 inches with an adult?

I was estimating 52 inches for it. With the two barrel rolls, extremely banked turns, and enormous airtime, it added up correctly in my understanding.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

X2 and Millennium Force also have 48 inch height requirements.

Both coasters are hardly considered "family" coasters at all.

^ I'm pretty sure that NTAG also has a 48 in. height requirement.

X is the best. Tatsu sucks.

Height restrictions are generally based on the restraints. Feet must be able to touch the floor. Or the body must be somewhat proportionate to restraints like on inverted coasters (since they don't have floors.)

I don't see a problem with the 48 inch height restriction, but I'd be surprised if they market it as a family coaster. I'm still a little surprised that PowderKeg (also 48 inch height requirement) is marketed as a family launched coaster, but I'd say most kids who actually will actually ride a coaster like this are going to enjoy it. One of my cousins rode Millennium Force when she was five, and while she didn't have much to say about it, you could tell she enjoyed it by looking at her on-ride photo. I'd also say that kids being thrown around on Outlaw Run would be less of a concern than some of the roughness that occurs on Vekoma/Arrow Corkscrew coasters and many older wooden coasters.

Last week, it was clear winter had arrived at Outlaw Run. A fresh blanket of snow covered the “World’s Most Daring Wood Coaster” for the first time. We don’t know about you, but for us, spring can’t come fast enough. Get Ready to Ride.
