  1. It is more about being decapitated than the leg room I would think. The ride has bars very low going all the way through the roller coaster ride. I have seen it with lights on and off. Rode it over 50 times. Definitely not for tall people. The cars are small and short barely enough room for a smallish rider. They can’t upgrade cars unless they revamp the entire rollercoaster. The cars fit perfectly on the track. It’s an uncomfortable ride but fun as heck. Back in the 1980s you rode in someone’s lap leaving a bruise on the person’s chest behind you.

    I have seen dozens of ~6’6″ people fit onto Space. I am 6’3″ and it never once crossed my mind that I could not fit. I’d say it’s more about the body type than it is height. A tall person who is normal body fat and flexible can fit themselves onto the ride. Someone who is both tall and overweight with no limberness will struggle.
