Universal Orlando Resort Attractions Height Requirements

| | |

Universal Orlando Resort has become known as a theme park with something for the whole family. While many attractions and rides are available to Guests of all heights, several experiences at Universal Orlando parks have minimum height requirements. 

You don’t have to miss out just because someone in your party isn’t quite tall enough for your favorite ride or attraction. Everyone else can still ride using the child swap program. This allows your party to split into 2 groups – the first group rides while the second hangs back, then you switch, allowing the second group to ride. Read more about the child swap program here.
