Thanks Michele! I, too, will be anxiously awaiting your response! My kids are so excited about the upcoming cruise, I do not want them to be disappointed when they get on - better to prepare them ahead of time!

Looking forward to your posts about all the kids stuff. My daughter is 6 1/2 and about 47 inches so looks like size wise she can go on the slide now it will be my own worry whether or not she will be okay doing it. What if she forgets and tries to sit up, my guess is it will go so fast that she will be at the end before she knows it

I'd also be curious about the entertainment being appropriate for kids. I've heard Rock of Ages may not be appropriate. My daughter loves music and stage shows so I'd be interested in hearing whether or not it is to inappropriate for this age group.

Have fun!!!

I had read the restrictions but can't remember if it was 42 or 48 inches. Though I don't remember seeing any young people other than my daughter on the course.

I don't know why, but even this slide seems scary to me....maybe it's the name. Is it much faster than any other slide?

As promised - here you go. Minimum is 48". Maximum weight is 300lbs



There is a zip line on it too - you zip over the rock wall



Another pic of the course



And the plank - they take a picture of you just so you can prove you did it to the folks back home

This says you need to be 48 inches tall WITHOUT a chaperone. Will they allow a shorter child to go with a parent?

Great catch!!!! Yes it DOES say that!!!! Now I need someone to double check this for me - luckily I still have some friends onboard. I will post the answer as soon as I get a confirmation

But if you read that line it says - "Only one participant on an activity at any time except a child being assisted by a chaperone"

So I am wondering HOW LITTLE they take. Wonder if someone wants to take a toddler up there?
