4.) Are there any height restrictions on any of the rides and attractions?

We carefully select our rides and attractions to ensure there’s plenty to do for children ages 2-12 (and parents too!). However, some of our rides do require that children be accompanied by an adult, if they do not meet the height requirements to ride alone. (These height requirements are provided by the ride manufacturer to ensure rider safety.) Be advised, one adult may not accompany more than one child at a time.
