Child Height Check Stations

Visit one of our Height Check Stations at the entrance to each ride to find out if you're child meets the height requirements.

At Busch Gardens® Williamsburg, your child will be given a colored wristband and an informational sheet indicating which rides your child can enjoy. Most of the attractions at Water Country USA® can be ridden at any height; however, there may be restrictions to ride alone. Please read the sign at the entrance to all attractions to verify that you meet the listed rider requirements. For more information, please see our Accessibility Guides.
