Anything there to do for kids under 48" tall??


I almost don't feel the way I do.

I am wondering whether or not to do IOA during our upcoming trip. Our kids love roller coasters, but are both too small for some of the wilder ones. They are both around 46" tall... Will they just be disappointed because they can't do anything, or would they still like IOA???

Thanks for your help! :)

In my opion there is a lot to do for children. Depending on how "brave" they are theres rides like Spiderman, Jurassic Park River Adventure and Rip-Saw Falls not to mention Cat in the Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and the Caro-Suess-el, Stormforce, the Flying Unicorn (a junior coaster!) Personally, I love playing in Camp Jurrasic- some of the best rope climbing around! Hope this helps :) <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif" alt="razz">
I have to respectfully disagree. There is not plenty to do for the under 48 inchers. Those things mentioned do exist, however the lines are outrageous because they are the only things for them to do. And, IMHO, it's an awfully expensive "playground."

We won't be doing IOA again until the youngest is tall enough.
My son is 46" tall, loves IOA in a big, big way. He can go all day there, and on occassion has lasted 14 hours in both parks. His record is a one day total of 17 hours. It really will depend on the child. I really do think IOA appeals to children, but I am a biased source.

My sons are 46 and 49 inches. Both loved IOA even though we only went on rides we could all go on - so no Hulk, Popeye etc.
They LOVED spiderman and JP and could have rode Cat in a Hat all day. Don't forget the dinosaur encounter and the many play areas.
We're definitely going again on our next trip.
