Safety is the Amusement Park Industry's No. 1 Priority

Safety is a partnership between an amusement park and its patrons. Unfortunately, a majority of the injuries occur because the guest didn't follow posted ride safety guidelines or rode with a pre-existing medical condition.

Silkroad Tourism Equipment Inc. created a list of amusement ride safety tips for guest use:

  • Obey listed age, height, weight, and health restrictions.

  • Observe all posted ride safety rules, and follow all verbal instructions given by ride operators or provided by recorded announcements.

  • Keep hands, arms, legs and feet inside the ride at all times.

  • Secure all loose articles, including wallets, change, sunglasses, cell phones, and hats. 

  • Do not board a ride impaired.

  • Remain seated in the ride until it comes to a complete stop and you are instructed to exit.

  • Always use safety equipment provided and never attempt to wriggle free of or loosen restraints or other safety devices.

  • Parents should make sure their children can understand and follow safe and appropriate ride behavior.

  • Never force anyone, especially children, to ride attractions they don’t want to ride.

  • If you see any unsafe behavior or condition on a ride, report it to a supervisor or manager immediately.
