2022 Ride Accessibility Guide

Adventureland Park is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience to all of our guests.  All of our rides have safety systems that are designed to maximize safety.  In order to ensure a safe experience, some guests may not be able to safely enjoy all of our attractions due to ride manufacturer design.  Signage is available at ride entrances to inform guests of the requirements for each ride.  Guests should observe all ride signage, instructions from ride operators, and the information in this guide.  Adventureland Park management reserves the right to refuse access to a ride which is deemed unsafe for a guest.  

Guests should be aware that in some rare circumstances, it may be necessary to evacuate guests from areas other than the normal loading/unloading platform.  If you do not believe you would be able to unload from an elevated platform and/or negotiate a ladder or stairs from the highest position on the ride, we recommend that you do not ride.  Please note that our team members are not trained to lift or carry guests on or off of our rides.

 

General Information

Special Needs Passes
Special Needs Passes are available at Guest Information on Main Street.  Special Needs Passes give guests with disabilities access to board rides through an alternate ride entrance.  Guests with a Special Needs Passholders can ride with up to 3 additional riders (for a maximum total of 4 riders per group) and can ride up to two times in a row.  At some rides, you may be required to unload at the unload platform and then reload at the loading platform due to ride design.   
Ride Alternative Access
 Guests with a Special Needs Pass are allowed to board via each ride’s alternative entrance, typically the ride exit.  There are blue signs at many rides to direct guests to the alternative access location.  The following rides have alternative access points other than the ride exit:

Amputations and Prosthetic Devices

Due to each individual ride manufacturer's restraint design, some rides may not be able to safely accommodate guests with certain types of amputations or prosthetic devices.  Below is a list of rides where safety restrictions exist regarding amputations and prosthetic devices.  A member of Adventureland Park management will need to consult with a guest at these rides prior to riding to ensure a safe experience and to explain any relevant safety restrictions.

Guests must have two legs below the knee without the use of prosthetic devices. Guests must have one hand that can grasp the restraints. Guests must remove prosthetics before riding unless the prosthetic is surgically implanted.

Medical Conditions

Many rides are not recommended for guests with back or neck injuries, heart conditions, and/or guests who have had recent surgeries.  Consult the rules of the ride sign at each ride for each ride’s recommendations and ask a ride operator if you have questions.  

We don't recommend that you ride any rides that have seatbelts or lap bars if you are pregnant.  A couple of rides that you may be able to ride if you are pregnant are the A-Train and the Carousel since they do not have restraints.  Consult the rules of the ride sign at each ride for each ride’s recommendations and ask a ride operator if you have questions.

Height and Weight Restrictions

Each ride has a posted height restriction which may include a height minimum and/or a height maximum.  These restrictions cannot be waived by a ride operator or by Adventureland Park management.

Some rides are easier for a larger person to ride. We suggest rides with more open or bench style seating such as the Saw Mill Splash, Sky Wheel, Sky Ride, Balloon Race, etc. Weight distribution plays a big part as well - if you are heavier in the middle, lap bars may be difficult to secure, but overhead restraints may not be an issue.

  • We do not have specific weight limits except on certain kiddie rides.

  • All riders must be able to securely fasten all required seat belts/harnesses in order to ride.

  • Extenders are not made available from the ride manufacturers for our rides as a safety issue.

  • Over head restraints may prohibit taller guests from riding certain rides.
