In brief: Usually ok

"heart condition" encompasses a broad range of maladies! someone who experiences angina with exertion should avoid the stress of a roller coaster but most people with hd who have been stable and free of symptoms for long periods can tolerate brief stress well.
If in doubt, of course, discretion is the wiser part of valor.
