CAPITAL FAIR MIDWAY RIDE SAFETY

The midway industry and OABA provides the following tips for a fun and safe visit to the Fair

 

• Choose rides appropriate for rider abilities, sensitivities and health.

 

• Obey listed age, height, weight, and health restrictions especially those involving heart and back

   conditions, and pregnancies. Such restrictions were created by the ride designers and

   manufacturers.

 

• Don't put a child on a ride he's either too small or young for/or outgrown.

 

• Observe and follow all posted ride safety rules and instructions about seating order or loading.

 

• Keep hands, arms, legs, and feet inside the ride at all times. Secure loose hair, clothing, and objects.

 

• Adults should never seat a child on their lap unless ride operators indicate it's safe to do so.

• Follow all verbal instructions given by ride operators or provided by recorded announcements.

 

• Remain seated in the ride until it comes to a complete stop and riders are instructed to exit.

 

• Use safety equipment provided; stay safely seated and hold on.

 

• Parents with children should make sure that their children can understand safe and appropriate ride behavior.

 

• Never force anyone on rides; don't put children on rides they're afraid of.

 

• If you see any unsafe behavior or conditions on a ride, report it to a ride supervisor or manager immediately.

 

• Report injuries to a ride supervisor.
