Universal Ride Height Requirements

Get to know the Universal Ride Height Requirements at Universal Studios,  Universal Islands of Adventure,and Volcano Bay and make the most out of your Universal Orlando vacation.

Attractions are designed so that most guests can enjoy them, but some attractions have restrictions and guidelines to make sure  guests have a safe, enjoyable experience.

Universal also offers  a “child switch” program. If any child in your party cannot ride an attraction, one or two adults can wait with the child in the attraction’s Child Switch room. When the rest of your party returns, they switch with those who were waiting with the child, without having to wait in line again. You can find more information on The Mouse For Less website.
