There were signs saying all users had to be 140cm, and Hazel is only about 132cm in bare feet, but there were other children shorter than 140cm on the rides so we couldn't figure out what was wrong. Eventually one life guard who spoke English explained that for children 130-140cm, the parents have to sign a disclaimer at the first aid point before children can use the slides. We did this - it was a ...
