Universal Orlando Ride Height Restrictions

Listed in alphabetical order by park. You can also see if the attraction participates in the rider switch facility

Universal Studios Florida

From where you could “ride the movies” to feeling like you’re in them!

Thanks to Universal’s reliance on the same technology for several rides throughout the resort the average rider height for attractions in this park is now lower than it was.

The same magic number that gets you onto 75% of Disney World’s attractions will get you on roughly the same percentage in Universal Studios.

Islands Of Adventure

New Millenium wonder park brings family focus to the fore with a little help from a boy called Harry!

Islands Of Adventure set out to right the most complained about part of Universal Studios – the lack of attractions for young children.

Seuss Landing does a wonderfully colourful job of entertaining not just small children but teenagers and adults too.

Sadly, beyond the curvy walls of Seuss Landing younger visitors could be left on the sidelines more than they might like.

Universal Orlando Ride Height Restrictions

– Water Parks

Some attractions are for younger children only so the height restriction is maximum not minimum

Universal’s Volcano Bay

Orlando’s newest water park is water-based heaven for everyone!

Volcano Bay is Orlando’s most popular water park for good reason.

It has the thrills of Blizzard beach with plenty of sunbeds and chill out space in a tiny footprint.  The park feels much larger than it’s current acreage.

The adults come for the sunbeds and slides but children will soo discover a water-filled play land to explore.

Some common questions about ride restrictions and how to use the information on this page

When Are These Updated?

This page was last updated in July 2021. If you have any questions a Universal Resort host can answer them for you either by phone or on email.

What About Disabilities?

Universal does a much better job about listing all forms of ride requirements, not just the height. You can download the latest rider safety leaflets and view more information on their rider safety page

How Can I Experience The Ride If My child is Too Small To Ride?

Universal Orlando Resort offers a child swap facility for families with young children. It should be available on most attractions with a height restriction.  There will be a page dedicated to rider switch soon.

Does Universal Publish These?

Absolutely! These figures are taken directly from the Universal Orlando website. If you have further questions a Universal representative can answer them for you.

Is This Every Ride With Restrictions?

What is listed here is taken directly from the Universal Orlando website. Please bear in mind that the website may not be updated as attractions are added or closed. The information on this page is for guidance while you are planning,

Is Child Swap Available At Every Attraction In Universal Orlando

The wording on this is very vague on the Universal website. Rider switch is currently not available inside Volcano Bay Water Park due to the virtual queueing system used inside this park.
