Does anyone know if there are rules about what you can ride with a broken arm? does it make a difference if its a full arm cast or just the lower arm? 

Next week my friend and I were planning to suprise our daughters for their birthdays and instead of going to school, go to a local amusemrnt park. But then yesterday her friedn broke her arm. We don't know yet how big the cast will be...but it will be casted. Can she still go on rides?

That sounds like it would be incredibly painful

casts are an exclusion from a ride for liability reasons

I'm going to, but they don't open until Friday. I figured someone here might have experience.

Gotcha. I know I went on rides at Six Flags with a cast but it was only up to my elbow.

You should call the park and ask, but I bet for liability reasons, they'll say no. At least to certain rides, maybe some gentle ones?
