Safety is our number-one priority. Guests with certain body proportions, or of certain heights and/or weights, may not be able to enjoy certain rides if the safety restraints will not operate as designed. Specific ride information is available at the ride and at the Ride Information Center. For your convenience, a one-time height check is available at the Ride Information Center, located on the left side, outside the main entrance so our smaller guests don’t have to be re-measured at each attraction.

There is an inherent risk in participating in any amusement ride. We expect riders to exercise good judgement and act in a responsible manner.

Please read the specific guidelines posted at each entrance of the rides.
