Amusement park safety is a must for families

While taking a trip to a Colorado amusement park can be a great source of fun for the whole family, there is a risk of serious injury or even death if a park fails to properly operate and maintain rides. Accordingly, it’s important for families to be aware of what is required of parks in terms of safety, as well as knowing what they can do to keep kids secure.

As stated by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, regulation of amusement parks is typically left to the state where they are located. Inspections must occur on a regular basis to ensure that equipment is functioning as anticipated. These inspections are usually undertaken by third party companies that specialize in inspection of amusement park attractions and can occur at any time (with some even occurring daily). Additionally, most regulations require anyone in charge of operating equipment to undergo specific training

There are also standards in place that park owners must follow in order to remain in compliance. To better anticipate new technologies that may be safer for park visitors, these standards are continually reviewed and adapted as needed. Standards can cover a variety of factors related to park amusements, such as testing and maintenance of rides, as well as operational capabilities.

There are also things parents can do to keep the whole family safe while visiting an amusement park. Parents.com offers some tips on safe riding, such as obeying posted regulations at all times. Restraints should fit accordingly and be checked by both the ride operator as well as parents to ensure nothing has been overlooked. It’s also recommended that children only ride those amusements that are age-appropriate.
