"All of our rides and attractions are fitted with signs that list the requirements for riding that particular ride and how many tickets are required to ride. It is true that most rides have height and weight requirements. Smaller children can be accompanied by a paying adult on some larger rides. Our motto is “Know Your Limitations.” We have all been in situations where due to height or size we are limited to the activities that we can participate in. It is the same in the Carnival Industry."
