The Amusement Device Unit issues annual operating permits to amusement device companies who meet statutory compliance requirements. The unit mitigates risks associated with the operation of fixed and portable amusement devices such as inflatables, zip lines, dark houses, roller coasters, Ferris wheels, carousels, bumper cars, trampoline parks, and other devices that fall under the definition of an amusement device. The Amusement Device Unit verifies third-party inspectors are certified, confirms proper industry standards are applied, and reviews inspection reports to ensure amusement device companies are safe and operable on the date of the inspection.
