Bureau of Ride & Measurement Standards
The Bureau's Amusement Ride Safety Program serves citizens and visitors by enforcing the safety laws specific to amusement rides and attractions, keeping them safe when enjoying leisure time at state fairs, carnivals, and amusement parks. The Amusement Ride Safety Program uses an effective public/private program that encompasses regulation, education and training to protect those who live and play in PA.
An owner may not operate an amusement ride or attraction, at an event (public or private), unless the amusement attraction has been registered, inspected, and an affidavit of inspection issued by a licensed inspector. Many owners are inspectors and can inspect their own equipment.
