Re: PortAventura World

Hey, does anyone know how strict the staff at PortAventura are with maximum height restrictions? There are a few rides with a 1.95m max height restriction (Red Force, Furious Baco, Dragon Khan, Hurakan Condor), & I am around 1.96-1.97m tall, so I was wondering if I'd be likely to be able to ride...
