Are Roller Coasters Really Dangerous?

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 | Permalink

wisegeek.com

Roller coasters are popular attractions at amusement parks all over the world, and patrons flock to them for thrills, especially in the summer. However, some deaths and serious injuries have been associated with roller coasters, raising concerns about their safety, especially for fragile and elderly riders. The relative lack of regulation of the amusement park industry has also been a cause of concern for some lawmakers, who would like to see more oversight of roller coasters to prevent injuries.

Statistically, a roller coaster is not very dangerous, especially if you are in good physical condition. Amusement park patrons are far more likely to die in accidents on the way to the park than they are to suffer injuries on a roller coaster, assuming that the equipment is well maintained and run responsibly. Amusement parks run numerous tests on their equipment to ensure that it is safe for use, including measurements designed to determine the g-forces that riders will be subject to. Amusement parks like their patrons healthy and alive, so they try to build roller coasters which are fun and safe.

There are, however, a few instances in which riding a roller coaster may be unsafe. For all riders, riding equipment that is not well maintained is risky. When riding a roller coaster, it is always a good idea to inspect the equipment. Look for signs of rust, poor repair jobs, or dirt, suggesting that the roller coaster is not well cared for. When you strap into a roller coaster, make sure that the straps are not faded, repaired, or frayed, and if a restraining bar is used, make sure that it locks into place snugly, leaving no room to wiggle or slide. Small children are especially at risk of falling out of roller coasters, due to their small size, so make sure that they are going to be safe.

Roller coasters can also be dangerous for people with heart conditions. The sense of excitement that accompanies a roller coaster ride is also accompanied by an elevated heart rate, which can cause an arrhythmia or myocardial infarction, better known as a heart attack. People with known heart conditions should talk to their doctors about riding roller coasters, because they may be unsafe.

In addition, roller coasters have been linked with the appearance of blood clots on the brain, called subdural hematomas. A subdural hematoma occurs when blood vessels on the brain burst and the blood starts to clot, and it can be a serious health problem. This occurs very rarely, and is linked with roller coasters that subject patrons to high g-forces or instances where a passenger was whipped around as a result of poorly secured safety equipment. Individuals who take blood thinners should avoid roller coasters for this reason, and anyone who experiences repeated headaches after a roller coaster ride should mention it to their doctor.

AMUSEMENT RIDE SAFETY AND G-FORCES

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011 | Permalink

iaapa.org

G-forces refer to the force of gravity, and one G is equal to the normal pull of earth’s gravity on the body. Amusement ride designers have collected and studied relevant data on g-forces for years, subsequently applying this biodynamic knowledge to the design, manufacture and construction of rides. While technological advances have led to the development of faster and more thrilling rides, overall g-force levels have not dramatically changed in the past two to three decades because riders’ tolerance levels have not changed.

When discussing the effects of g-forces on a person who is on a ride, one must consider the duration of the g-force, as well as a multitude of other variables. When it comes to the higher–g sections of amusement rides, exposure often lasts fractions of a second. Therefore, the rider does not experience any adverse effects because the force is extremely brief. Blackouts and other health issues associated with Gs require exposure to g-forces which are either greater in magnitude or of much longer duration than those achieved by today’s amusement rides.

A study by Murray Allen, MD, Ian Weir-Jones, P. Eng, Ph.D., and several other doctors and engineers was published in the November 1994 edition of Spine. The study “found that in one event of daily activity, the vector acceleration of 10.4 g was experienced uneventfully.” We go through our everyday lives with our bodies exposed to far greater gravitational pull than that of any amusement park ride; we just don’t realize it, or even think about it.

Examples of everyday gravitational forces:

Sneeze 2.9
Cough 3.5
Crowd jostle 3.6
Slap on back 4.1
Hop off step 8.1
Plop down in chair 10.1

REALITY:

No fewer than five independent scientific reviews have comprehensively analyzed the issue of amusement ride g-forces, and all five have reached the same conclusion: the rotational accelerations experienced by the head during rides pose no risk of brain injury to the general populace.
We welcome this science-based work, in place of the random anecdotal accounts that had previously dominated the debate over this issue.
It is clear from this thorough analysis that a focus simply and strictly on the matter of g-forces or height or speed is wholly inadequate when discussing the physical experience of riding a roller coaster or any other ride.
Instead, the interaction between ride and rider is a complex one, yet these reviews have authoritatively demonstrated that the dynamic characteristics of that interaction are far below even the minimum levels associated with brain injury.
Amusement ride manufacturers have collected and studied relevant data on g-forces for years, subsequently applying this biodynamic knowledge to the design and construction of rides to make them as safe as possible.
While technological gains have led to the development of bigger rides, overall g-force levels have generally not changed that much in the past two or three decades because riders’ tolerance levels haven’t changed – people are the same today as they were in 1970.
Instead, the very technological and design improvements which have allowed for a more thrilling and faster ride have simultaneously helped produce an even safer ride in all aspects, including Gs.
Additionally, ASTM International has now incorporated g-force limits into its ride safety standards that guide the amusement industry. The ASTM process is the most appropriate one for the task, given the independent organization’s 30-plus-year history in developing this exacting set of standards in partnership with the industry, consumer groups, and government entities.
A key point to remember about this issue is that equally important to the magnitude of g-forces is their rate of onset and their duration, as well as a multitude of other variables. When it comes to the higher-g sections of amusement rides, exposure lasts but a few seconds at most, and often fractions of a second, so before a rider feels any adverse effect, the force is already past.
In marked contrast, blackouts and other health matters associated with Gs require exposure to g-forces which are either greater in magnitude or of much longer duration than those achieved by today’s rides.

ROLLER COASTER LOOPHOLE SURVIVES COMMITTEE DEBATE, MARKEY SECURES HEARING FOR ISSUE

Thursday, May 26th, 2011 | Permalink

markey.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This afternoon, the House Energy and Commerce Committee voted against closing a dangerous safety loophole that places fixed-site amusement park rides outside the jurisdiction of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Representative Edward J. Markey (D-MA) has introduced legislation every Congress since 1999 to restore CPSC’s authority over fixed-site rides and offered an amendment to that effect today during committee consideration of H.R. 4040, the Consumer Product Safety Modernization Act. Though his amendment failed by a vote of 10 in favor and 25 opposed, Rep. Markey secured a promise for the first-ever congressional hearing devoted to this subject.

“While I am disappointed by today’s vote, I am pleased that my colleagues have realized this issue warrants the attention of a congressional hearing. For too long, Congress has ignored the roller coaster loophole, preventing the CPSC from investigating accidents on thrill rides that hurtle children at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour.

“The CPSC lacks the authority to require park operators to share information about an accident with operators of the same ride in other states. This makes no sense whatsoever,” said Rep. Markey.

While the amusement park industry has fought hard against closing this loophole, yesterday Rep. Markey released a letter from a former senior executive in the amusement park industry who expressed support for Rep. Markey’s efforts to close the loophole.

Jim Prager, a former industry senior executive and board member of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), the trade association of the amusement park ride industry, was closely involved in the successful efforts to exempt fixed-site amusement rides from CPSC jurisdiction in 1981 and again in 1984. In his letter he stated that:

“Insurance programs mandated by states or maintained by the operating amusement park companies are often touted as assuring ride safety but many of these programs have gaping holes rendering the programs essentially meaningless. Some state licensing or inspection programs were created to serve not the public, but the industry, providing an illusory aura of safety.”

“The cost-cutting of the last 25 years has reduced the industry capacity for safety,” Mr. Prager added. “I now believe that I was wrong 25 years ago and that the industry should be regulated.”

“As a former industry executive involved in the successful effort to exempt fixed-site rides from CPSC authority in 1981 and again in 1984, Mr. Prager’s comments should be a clarion call to raise awareness about the need to close this dangerous loophole now. Until now, the industry line has been that federal oversight is not needed, but as Mr. Prager observes, self-regulation and a patchwork of state regulations are not enough to prevent tragic accidents from occurring,” Rep. Markey said.

The nation’s leading safety agency, the CPSC, oversees the safety of carnival (“mobile”) rides, but is prohibited from overseeing the safety of park (“fixed-site”) rides. Rep. Markey is seeking to ensure that the CPSC has the authority to investigate accidents, develop and enforce plans to correct defects and act as a national clearinghouse for accident and defect data.

Rep. Markey’s efforts have been endorsed by Consumers Union, the Consumer Federation of America, the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, Saferparks.org, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group and Kids in Danger.

Used Amusement Park Equipment: How Much Should I Expect To Pay?

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010 | Permalink

pursuitzone.com

With financial times being so hard on everybody no one is buying anything “brand-spankin’ new” these days. When it comes to Used Amusement Park Equipment shopping around is your best bet.

What should you expect to pay for different kinds of Used Amusement Park Equipment? Firstly, it depends on the equipment itself. Obviously, a boom truck will cost you more than a soda machine. Secondly, the brand and year of the equipment must be taken into consideration. Older equipment manufactured by some unknown company will cost less than newer equipment which has been manufactured by a recognized company. Shipping is another factor that must be taken into consideration. If the piece of Used Amusement Park Equipment you were searching for happens to be out of the USA, then you must consider maritime shipping expenses.

Transport Equipment
Trailers, trucks and boom trucks fall in the transport category of Used Amusement Park Equipment. A factor which affects the price of trailers and trucks, aside from the year and model, is the size. Another factor which influences the pricing of this Used Amusement Park Equipment will be whether it has been refurbished and when. Normally, older trucks which have been recently refurbished may cost you anywhere between $30 to $40 thousand dollars. For an older tractor with a generator expect to pay as low as $15 thousand dollars. Your basic transport trailer, depending on the age, size and condition, may cost you as low as $2 thousand.

Food Preparation/Sale Related Equipment
The pricing on this type of Used Amusement Park Equipment will depend on the complexity and number of functions, and model. Naturally, newer models will cost more than older ones and, a multi-purpose one such as a piece of equipment which will bake and fry will cost you more than a simple hot dog machine. For example, a Quik n’ Crispy machine (bakes, fries and grills using only hot air) with 208V/240V, EC Model will cost you approximately $3 thousand (before taxes) while the GE5 Model of same voltage will cost you approximately $6 thousand, before taxes.

Display Equipment
Equipment in this category not only includes displays of retail goods but, also self-serve foodstuff. Used Amusement Park Equipment of this nature may be bought directly from the seller but, also from brokers who at times also sell an assortment of equipment in bulk. Brokers also have numerous connections in the industry and may also assist you in finding a better deal than the one you found on your own. It is recommended that you check them out also to see if you can obtain a better deal.

Expect to pay approximately $90 (before taxes) for used wall shelving measuring 4 feet in length. Because Used Amusement Park Equipment dealing with foodstuffs involves refrigeration expect to pay anywhere from $1 to $2 thousand dollars.

Whether you are considering purchasing a trailer or a fryer first ensure that you check out its availability as Used Amusement Park Equipment either through a broker or directly from the seller. You will be saving yourself a substantial amount of money!

Bronson Urges Caution On Fair Rides

Thursday, October 7th, 2010 | Permalink

September 29, 2010

TALLAHASSEE – Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is urging consumers to heed safety rules on fair rides now that the fall fair season is approaching. The majority of fair ride accidents are caused by patron error and many injuries can be avoided by following the rules posted at the ride locations.

The Department’s Bureau of Fair Ride Inspections is responsible for inspecting amusement rides at temporary events (fairs, carnivals and festivals) and permanent amusement facilities (go-kart parks and water parks) for structural and operational integrity. All traveling amusement rides receive permits on an annual basis but in addition, each amusement ride must be inspected every time it is set up and must pass inspection prior to being open to the public. Rides at most permanent amusement facilities are inspected and permitted twice each year. Florida has about 211 permanent amusement parks and more than 167 traveling amusement companies. The Department’s 15 ride inspectors performed over 9,500 amusement ride inspections in Florida last year.

Statistics show that historically, reported accidents were the result of patron error about 92 % of the time. The remaining 8 % were attributable to mechanical or operational problems, or the cause was undetermined. In addition, since 1997, the number of rides that failed the Bureau’s first inspection has dropped from approximately 60% to about 44%. Bronson believes the ride owners and operators are doing a better job of assembling, inspecting and maintaining the rides as a result of the stringent inspection requirements and scrutiny of the Department’s inspection program.

“Florida has one of the strictest fair ride safety programs in the nation,” Bronson said. “Our inspectors work hard to ensure the rides are erected properly and the equipment is in good working order but riders also need to be responsible and follow the rules and regulations to prevent accidents.”

Ride patrons should always observe cautionary instructions and consider physical limitations when riding any amusement ride. They should also pay special attention to size or age restrictions for children to ride on certain rides.

Ride inspectors receive refresher training at least twice each year to keep up to date on the latest inspection techniques, manufacturers’ bulletins and safety alerts. Department inspectors utilize laptop computers in the field as a resource to verify ride information on expiration of permits and insurance and inspection history. They use a comprehensive 26 point checklist to inspect carnival rides from top to bottom to ensure maximum public safety.

Fairs in Florida traditionally kick off during the fall season, and Bronson says now is the time to educate the public about the need to follow the safety rules. For more information about fair ride inspections, log on to the Division of Standard’s website at www.doacs.state.fl.us/standard/fairs/

AMUSEMENT RIDE REGULATONS – TEXAS

Thursday, October 7th, 2010 | Permalink

Current as of September 30, 2009

The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) is the state’s administrator for the Amusement Ride Safety Inspection and Insurance Act, Occupations Code Chapter 2151. To legally operate in Texas, an amusement ride owner/operator must file with TDI an insurance policy with certain minimum limits for bodily injury for persons using the ride and an annual amusement ride safety inspection certificate. The inspection is performed by an approved inspector of the insurance company. Rides meeting the requirements will be issued a TDI Amusement Ride Compliance Sticker (similar to an automobile safety inspection sticker), which will indicate the expiration date of the inspection certificate. The sticker should be affixed to a major component of each ride in a location visible to the ride participants.

The amusement ride owner/operator is required to provide a photocopy of the inspection certificate and the required insurance policy to any sponsor, lessor, landowner or other person responsible for amusement rides publicly used.

An amusement ride inspection certificate indicates the ride has met the standards required by the manufacturer, insurer, or the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Recognition by the Department that the amusement ride has satisfied these standards is not an endorsement by the Department or a statement regarding the safe operation of the amusement ride.

What’s considered as an amusement ride?

Most mobile carnival rides
Most theme park rides
Most water park rides and devices
Amusement rides also include, but are not limited to the following:
consession go-karts, rock climbing walls, bungee jumps, mechanical bulls, trackless trains, continuous air flow inflatable rides/devices and various simulators.

What’s not considered as an amusement ride?

Non-mechanized playground equipment
Physical fitness/training devices or obstacle/ropes course equipment
Public conveyance devices
Coin operated rides
Small rides or devices that do not require the supervision or service of an operator
Live animal rides
Motor Sports

What should the public look for at a carnival or amusement ride?

“Look for the Sticker” – A compliance sticker should be attached to each ride, List of Current Stickers.
“Look for the Sign” – A sign is required to inform the public how to report (on-site) an amusement ride that appears to be unsafe or to report an amusement ride operator that appears to be violating the law. The sign is to be posted at the principal entrance or at the ticket booths.
Look for posted height/weight restrictions for riders on certain rides.

Who’s in charge?

A municipal, county or state law enforcement official may enter and inspect without notice at any time to ensure public safety and may immediately prohibit operation of an amusement ride for non-compliance and/or unsafe operation.
If requested by law enforcement an amusement ride owner/operator must make available the following documents for each ride:
A copy of the insurance policy
A copy of the inspection certificate
A daily self inspection log (mobile rides only)
An offense for non-compliance is a Class B misdemeanor.

What’s available on amusement rides from TDI?

Insurance policies/certificates
Annual inspection certificates
Injury reports – filed quarterly by the amusement ride owner/operator
Governmental action reports (police, judicial or government action taken in law forum) – filed quarterly by the amusement ride owner/operator
Schedule of operating locations and dates for mobile operations
Check with TDI to see if an amusement ride owner/operator is in compliance.
