Ride Policies and Procedures
For safety reasons, all of Cedar Point’s rides have been evaluated for needed requirements according to guest height. Cedar Point has clearly posted the height requirement at the entrance of each ride. Ride height requirement information is available at Guest Services (far right-hand side of Main Entrance turnstiles), Town Hall in Frontier Town and Resort Entrance Gate.
