I think I have the official ride manual somewhere so will have a quick read through it, but this is the restrictions we all use to follow when I was working on it.
Dear Sir or Madam,
Further to our letter July 18th 2001 regarding the Pirate Ship ride and its height restrictions. Please be advised that following feedback from customers, we contacted the TUV in Germany to review the concerns expressed and to clarify the height restriction requirements for this attraction.
Be advised that as of immediate effect, the correct height restrictions are 48" (1.2m) for unaccompanied children and 39" (0.9m) for children that are accompanied by parents and/or adults. In addition, small children (those between 39" and 48") should not be seated at the outside of any seat row and it is also recommended that they are seated in the two seat rows closet to the central mast. Individuals smaller than 39" are not permitted under any circumstances to ride this attraction.
