Safety Rules & Height Requirements

Please be advised that children under 42” may be required to ride some of the rides with a paying adult.


  • For your Safety, all rides at Gold Star Amusements have height requirements.
  • Follow all posted signage and please listen to the instructions given by the ride operator at all times.
  • Remain seated and restrained and keep your arms, legs and head inside the ride at all times.
  • Remove all loose articles, such as sunglasses, cell phones, hats, open-toed shoes and jewelry that may have the potential to fall off during the ride. We are not responsible for lost articles.
  • NO SELFIE STICKS. To ensure the safety of our guests, the use of photo arms, more commonly known as “Selfie Sticks,” is strictly prohibited on all rides and attractions on our Midway. “Selfie Sticks” should be left with a non-rider or secured with other loose articles. Guests that do not comply with this policy may be subject to dismissal without refund.

If you have any questions while visiting our Midway, please visit our onsite Guest Services or Offices.

Save time by measuring your child in advance at our SIZE WIZE measuring charts located near our ticket sales. Once you have the correct measurement, look for the SIZE WIZE signs posted at each ride to ensure your child meets the requirements. This will also help with determining which ticket package you will want to purchase.

Please be advised that children under 42” may be required to ride some of the rides with a paying adult.

We look forward to seeing you on our Midway!
