Rides are inspected by owner-hired 3rd party inspectors annually. State officials inspect carnival rides at each setup, park rides at least once a year, sometimes more often.
State officials are authorized to investigate serious accidents.
State law requires reporting of any injury resulting in overnight hospitalization for treatment or observation. State policy, stated in letter distributed to owners, says that ER-treated injuries should be reported as well. In addition, state law mandates reporting of any highway, setup, or tear-down accident involving impact on any ride component.
Inflatables, hay rides, and pony rides are non-jurisdictional.
