Accidents and Injuries Still On The Rise at Amusement Parks

If you visit a California theme park during the summer, you will most definitely encounter long lines and a hectic/crowded atmosphere. Tourists from all over the country and abroad visit California Amusement Parks each year. Friends and families love visiting Southern California’s top-rated theme parks such as Universal Studios, Disney Land, Disney’s California Adventure, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Six Flags Magic Mountain/Hurricane Harbor. Such theme parks have become one of California’s biggest sources of tourism.

Unfortunately, Amusement Park Accidents have been on the rise due to theme parks offering riskier and scarier rides. As theme parks offer faster, newer, and thrilling rides, the risk of serious injury increases. Even though the Occupational and Safety and Health Administration (“Cal-OSHA”), a California regulatory agency, regulates and inspects the rides in amusement parks, injuries are still on the rise.

What Else?

Not only do injuries occur in amusement parks, but they also frequently occur in carnivals and fairs. The rides in popular fairs such as the LA Fair and O.C Fair have inadequate safety inspections because they are only up for several days and then put down.

What Are Some of the Causes of Amusement Park Injuries?

  1. Defective Design
  2. Mechanical Failure
  3. Improper Maintenance
  4. Operator Negligence
  5. Inadequate Operator Training
