Universal Studios Singapore Height Requirements

Why do rides have height requirements?

Before we dive into Universal Studios Singapore specific height requirements, it’s important to understand why attractions have these restrictions in the first place. 

The main reason is safety. 

Theme park rides are designed to provide a thrilling experience but can also be dangerous if not used properly. 

Height restrictions are implemented to ensure guests can safely ride the attractions without being put at risk.

Height requirements vary depending on the type of ride and the specific design of the attraction. 

For example, roller coasters and other high-speed rides tend to have higher height requirements than slower, more gentle rides. 

This is because high-speed rides have more intense forces and maneuvers that could be dangerous for smaller riders.

Supervising Companion

Kids who meet the minimum height requirement of a ride but do not meet the 122 cms (48″) ride-alone height requirement must be accompanied by a Supervising Companion. 

A Supervising Companion is defined as someone 14 years of age or older and meets all other attraction ridership requirements. 

Child Switch program

For children who do not meet the height requirements, Universal Studios Singapore has a Child Switch program that allows parents or guardians to take turns riding the attraction while the other watches the child. 

Here’s how it works:

The first parent or guardian rides the attraction while the other watches the child.

Once the ride is over, the first parent or guardian hands over their rider pass to the second parent or guardian.

The second parent or guardian can then skip the line and ride the attraction without having to wait in line again.

This program ensures that families with young children can still enjoy the park’s attractions together without having to wait in line twice or miss out on the fun.

Additionally, there are many family-friendly attractions and shows in the park that do not have height requirements, so there are plenty of options for children of all ages to enjoy.

At Universal Studios Singapore, you can get guidance on which rides require parental accompaniment, and staff members are available to answer any questions or concerns.
