Ride Height Restrictions


All the theme parks employ height restrictions on some of their rides for safety reasons. It's a good idea to measure your child's height before you go so that you know what exactly they can and can't ride.

The height restrictions are strictly adhered to so there is no point arguing with the ride operators, they just won't let a child onto a ride if they do not meet the minimum height requirement.

The list below shows the theme park rides that have height restrictions in place
