    Hi, my family will be at AK on June 15, and my 5 year old is short (38 inches). Will she be able to join us and ride Expedition Everest. She loves coasters. Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Unfortunately, not. The minimum height requirement for Expedition Everest is 44 inches. These are strictly enforced for the safety of guests. My little girl loves roller coasters too and she impatiently waited to be tall enough to ride Expedition Everest. Each year she would measure herself against the height stick. I'll never forget when she was finally tall enough...she ended up riding it 3 times in a row!!

    Good news! If your daughter is 38 inches she will be able to enjoy Kali River Rapids with your family.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
