"walking age"?

Sorry, let me clarify my question a little.  We are going to six flags and a lot of the rides say they must be of "walking age" to ride.  We will be going on Delaney's first birthday.  She can take quite a few steps but she still crawls more than walks.

Mommy to my angel baby (miscarried 6/21/06 at 10 weeks), Jason Josiah (born 6/6/07) who is always pushing to be the best he can be, and my VBAC baby who tested my patience to no end by being 15 days late Delaney Abygail Grace (born 4/19/10)

Both of my kids walked pretty early but I think between 12mo-15mo they usually have taken first steps.

I've seen kids anywhere from 10 months - 14 months learning how to walk.  It depends on the child.

The thing is, six flags website says the kids must be of "walking age" for a lot of the rides.  So I'm trying to figure out if a 1 year old that is almost walking would qualify

I e-mailed them.  We will see what they say

I agree. Aaliyah is 13 months now & stands alone, takes 1-2 steps, almost but not walking. my older girl walked before a year. It just depends.

but OP as far as the rides, to me it sounds like the park is saying, kids should be able to sit, ride, and move (walk) by themselves.. as in not carried in a parent arm? let us know what they say?

Both of my kids took their first steps by themselves within a week of their first birthdays.
