A bit off topic, Why is Sub-terra 1.4 when Drop Dead at the London Dungeon is 1.2 (both are drop tower by (I think ABC))
I think it's to slightly help enforce a bit of an age limit on it too. Generally, kids over 1.4m are going to be older than kids over 1.2m (although I know there are exceptions)
The height thing is a weird one really.. What you have got to consider is that if you have a kid who is 1.35m tall, and you add 5cm to their leg length with things in shoes for example, it is only exactly the same someone who is 1.4m tall, but has the same body length as your kid, and therefore the same length legs as your newly adjusted child.. There will be no difference in the way the restraints fit, despite one child actually being shorter than the other.
I would wear big soled trainers and my hair on top of my head as a kid to ensure I was tall enough!
You have to be sensible though. There is no way you'd get away with more than a couple of cms anyway, which probably means the height limit is higher than it needs to be to be safe, just so that people who take their children on, knowing what the height limit is, aren't putting them at risk.
