Frequently Asked Questions
Roaring Springs, and the waterpark industry, recognize the importance of maintaining a family friendly atmosphere. The park does not allow G-strings or thongs, as stated on our signage. If we see or a guest reports someone wearing a G-string or thong, we will ask them to cover up or put on a more modest swimsuit. However, cheeky swimsuits, which have been a popular swimsuit style for the past several years and are sold at the department stores, are different than G-strings or thongs because they have 3 or more inches of fabric. It is a difficult balance to achieve, with this style of swimwear being so pervasive in the market, but we are monitoring it. Also, no belts, buckles, chains or jeans are allowed as they can damage the slides.

On Thunder Falls and Mammoth Canyon Raft Rides guests will be weighed as a group. On Pipeline Mines and Viper’s Vortex guests will be weighed individually or in pairs. Please see our Attractions page for specific height and weight requirements.
For the safety of our guests, certain rides have height requirements: Due to a change in slide manufacturer requirements, Pipeline Mines now has a 42 inch in bare feet height restriction. 42 inches in bare feet for Mammoth Canyon Family Raft Ride, Rattlesnake Rapids and Double Trouble. 48 inches in bare feet for Thunder Falls, Viper’s Vortex and the Avalanche. There are many other rides for our smaller guests to enjoy, including Little Splash Mountain kiddie play area, with Kiddie Kowabunga tube slide (48″ maximum height). If your child is close to 42″ in bare feet or 48″ in bare feet please go to Guest Relations and ask to have them measured at Roaring Springs official Height Measurement Station. They will receive a wristband indicating which slides they’re tall enough to ride if they meet the height requirement in bare feet.
