LeBron James is too tall to ride some of the most popular coasters at Cedar Point, Ohio.com is reporting today.

Standing at a tremendous 6 feet, 8 inches tall, James misses the height limit for the Millennium Force, the Maverick, the Top Thrill Dragster, the Wicked Twister, and the new Rougarou by a solid two inches.

"That’s ironic,"  Ohio.com's Craig Webb reports, "because the park auctioned off its first public rides [of the Rougarou] and even threw a party to mark the coaster’s opening, raising more than $125,000 for his LeBron James Family Foundation. The fundraising effort was part of a deal forged between LeBron and Cedar Point after the park offered to rename one of its coasters after him if he traded his Miami jersey for a Cavs uniform," he said.

Looks like the bball star will have to stick to catching thrills on the Blue Streak.
