Ride Information

At Aquatica San Antonio, safety is the only consideration that takes precedence over fun! Thrill rides, by their very nature, create forces and speeds that may not be acceptable or tolerable to some guests and may cause injury to some riders with known or unknown preexisting conditions.

Many theme park rides incorporate safety systems designed by the manufacturer to accommodate people of average physical stature and body proportion. These systems may place restrictions on the ability of an individual to safely experience the ride. In general, you should ride only if you are in good health. Do not ride if you know or suspect you may be pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart, neck or back problems, motion sickness, recent surgery, or any other medical condition that may be affected by the features of the ride. You should not ride if you have any impairment or condition that would prevent the intended use of seating and safety restraints as provided or an inability to follow any safety requirement.

In order to ride, guests must must review and comply with requirements posted at each attraction; those under 42 inches are recommended to wear a life vest and must be accompanied by an adult.  Guests must be able to maintain the proper riding position throughout the ride. Guests must be able to demonstrate a willingness and ability to comply with verbal and written rider requirements. The rider requirements and health restrictions are listed at the entrance of each ride.

Guests with casts or braces that may present a hazard to the guest or others will be restricted from riding certain rides. Please consult with our Information Center staff for more information or if in doubt about your ability to safely experience a ride.

Aquatica San Antonio team members can offer assistance steadying a guest transferring to or from a wheelchair. They may not lift or assist in lifting anyone using a wheelchair. All guests must be able to board a ride themselves or with help from a member of their party. The maturity level of any rider must be considered prior to riding.
