Universal Studios Florida Ride Height Restrictions

Universal Studios

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.

Universals Islands Of Adventure Ride Height Restrictions

Islands Of Adventure

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’s Volcano Bay Ride Height Restrictions

Volcano Bay

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 soon discover a water-filled adventure playground to explore.

Is Rider Switch Available At Every Attraction In Disney World?
