Can I ride? Height requirements for Universal Studios


When traveling with little ones, it can be important to plan some areas of your trip out. One of the biggest ways is to find out what rides your child may be able to ride when you arrive. Similar to Disney, there are height requirements for Universal Studio rides. It may seem like a nuisance but in all actuality, it is about child safety. Some people will be disappointed with the height requirements for Universal but that is why it’s important to plan ahead if there’s a certain right that you know your child will not be able to ride during your trip then it may be worth having a conversation as far as expectations.

But remember that this is so that everyone can have fun and safe experience at the parks. Universal studios have “test seats” at a lot of the attractions to make sure that they meet the requirements for the ride and to ensure that it is a comfortable experience as well.
