Health Tip: How to Stay Safe at an Amusement Park

Follow rules of the ride

(HealthDay News) -- While amusement parks can be a lot of fun, they can also lead to injury among people who don't follow the rules.

The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions advises park patrons to:

  • Follow posted restrictions regarding height, weight, health and age.
  • Follow all safety rules.
  • Always ride with feet, arms, hands and legs inside the ride.
  • Stay seated inside the ride until completely stopped and you are given permission to exit. Follow all verbal instructions for rides.
  • Wear any provided safety equipment, and do not try to get out of restraints.
  • Make sure young children understand all safety rules.
  • Never force anyone to ride, especially young children.
  • Report anyone who is not using a ride safely.
