Children may be officially measured at Ride Services located at the Guest Services Office at the Park Entrance, where they receive a wristband for the height category in which they belong.

For the safety of your child, a standard play shoe that does not contribute excessively to the child's height will be permitted. Platform shoes, for example, are not permitted to help a child meet a height requirement. Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom reserves the right to ask that shoes be removed to ensure that a child's height is not being artificially enhanced or manipulated.
