FAQ - Races and Roller Coaster Ride

Roller Coaster Ride

Ride any combination of the park’s world-class roller coasters to complete a total of 5K—that’s 16,405 feet, or about seven rides depending on which ones you do! Have your wristband stamped as you exit each ride, and we will tally your total distance when you check in at the scoring table at the end of the day.

Please review the height restrictions below before signing up children to make sure there are enough coasters they can ride. For complete Roller Coaster Ride rules, visit our FAQ page.
