You must be at least 80cm to ride or over 140cm to drive. If you do not reach the stated heights you unfortunately cannot participate in this activity.

If a child is on her/his own and is under the 140cm mark to drive, then the child will not be able to ride this attraction. You may ask the marshal operating the ride whether the child under 140cm in height can go on with another customer’s child who is able to drive (over 140cm in height).
