Amusement and theme park operators must take precautions to ensure the safety of everyone who visits. Maintenance and repair work must be done, and attractions should be regularly and thoroughly inspected. Hazards must be carefully evaluated to minimize the dangers to members of the public, and eliminate them before tragedies like this one occur. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this incident. This incident occurs just weeks after the deadly incident at an Iowa amusement park.
