Proper training of employees is a must, but often is ignored by the amusement parks at the expense of the invitees. The amusement park employees who run and/or operate the rides are often untrained employees, typically seasonal teenagers and young adults, who have limited understanding of their responsibilities. Failing to properly implement the correct training procedures for these inexperienced employees is a formula for disaster.
Additionally, many of the rides are old and have not been updated. Corners are cut to help the amusement’s bottom line. Many amusement rides are completely outdated and despite the Federal standards and requirements, unsafe equipment is not regularly replaced or brought up to current safety standards.
