Mobile Tall children- Big rides

Just measured my two kids as we are back at Universal in May.

DS is 6 and is 54in/4ft6in so he is now excited as he is tall enough to ride the Hulk!
Not sure Im too happy about this as I think once he is there and in the queue he will get scared.

Anybody else have kids that have been ok with big rides fairly young?

He did ride tower of terror when he was 3!

My 7 year boy old he is about 140cm did all the thrill rides in WDW and US. He ran around and wanted to do them all. He would have done the Hulk again and again but once was enough for me.
He is looking forward to doing Busch Gardens!

My boys have never been to Orlando but I think DS2 was 7 or 8 when went to Thorpe Park and did Swarm, Stealth, Colossus etc. Hes a real adrenaline junkie. No idea how these compare to the likes of Hulk though...

the queue isn't scary and if you plan it right you cant almost walk on.

Thanks everyone, I think we will just have to see what he is like when we get there. He did everything he could ride at Universal last year and loved them all.
I just dont want to be one of those parents with a screaming kid getting on the ride!

My son was 7 when he rode every coaster at Universal, Islands, Sea World and Disney. Loved them all. It depends very much on the individual child. Maybe warm up to it with the less intense rides first if you're unsure - Expedition Everest, Hagrid ride etc. Let him take the lead.

I've had my 4 year old on Slinky, Tower Terror, Big Thunder, Splash SWMT, Test Track and he's keen to rpt them next time so didn't scare him off. Splash an slinky are his most talked about post trip. My son was 9 before he could do hulk but he loved it- he was a bit worried in the queue but my husband explained how it went and he was fine. My 8 year old was gutted not to do Rip ride rocket - just too short. I think if they want to try let them but make sure they know what to expect- maybe show them videos and don't force it if they change there mind at the time. You know them best- how are they likely to react.
