While amusement parks offer a thrilling escape from people’s everyday life, they also offer real mechanical dangers that can cause minor to serious injuries and even wrongful death to guests, especially children. Riders of amusement thrill rides range from small children to adults, and their ability to understand the dangers of these rides differ significantly.
Although the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions claims that an amusement park is one of the safest places to go to for summer fun, these parks can still cause injuries to many people. According to U.S. Consumers Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates, 10,380 people were rushed to hospital emergency rooms in 1999 due to injuries resulting from mechanical failure, rider errors and operator errors of thrill rides.
Some states allow amusement parks to keep their accident records confidential unless someone is rushed to a hospital or dies. The state of New Jersey, however, requires park managers to report incidents that involve even minor bumps and scrapes.
The common causes of amusement park injuries are lack of inspection and monitoring, improper maintenance, product defects, rider errors and operator errors. Just like any other industry, there can be unfortunate exceptions, even when parks follow necessary safety standards.
