It's a possiblilty, but insurance companies don't have that kind of pull. They can't mandate ride height restrictions. As for coverage, it would be one policy for all of Six Flags.
I think there's some truth to what we were told at WCB, but it seemed like they were skirting around some other sort of issue they really didn't want to get into, which I think Elissa hit on.
What we were told at WCB for Mr. Six's Dance Coaster is that they were "Working with the ride manufacturer to get a lower height restriction, and they felt they needed to communicate SOMETHING on the website, so instead of putting 36" and then having to raise it to 42" which would result in disappointment, they decided to put the worst case scenario of 42" and hope to get it lowered to 36."
I'm not sure if this holds true also for Little Dipper but I'd have to assume it does since the websites are done at the same location (Six Flags Corporate.) I'm not sure why they can't just put "TBD" like every other park does because IMO putting "TBD" is better than communicating information that is currently inaccruate.
Last I heard about Mr. Six is that Screamscape was told "Screamscape sources tell us to be a bit more patient for height limit issue on the Mr. Six Dance Coaster at SFMM. I’ve been given an assurance that everything should be fixed and set to a proper height limit by the time the ride is ready to open."
I would have to assume the same thing is going on with LIttle Dipper.
