Depends what the rides restrictions say. Call the parks your trying to visit for that information.

Once saw a guy at KI try to ride Drop Zone/Tower and they refused him. So he proceeded to rip his cast off then rode. Oh Vey.

There's even a sign at the entrance to DZ "No Casts" and always wondered why not. I guess one could accidentally or deliberately be removed and fall on the crowds below.

I did check into that a few years cause my friend broke her wrist shortly before a trip to KI, SFKK and HW. Basically, what was said:

KI: no casts allowed on Drop Tower, Diamondback and no leg cast on Flight of Fear

Six Flags (all of them except La Ronde seem to follow the same rules): if the cast goes over the elbow or knee, you're not allowed on any rides. If it stops before the elbow, you're fine.

HW: no restrictions whatsoever it seems! If the cast is waterproof, you can even try the waterpark.

I've seen quite a few people ride with casts on at SF parks so If it's just your hand/wrist you should be fine. I would call ahead to be sure though.
