Updated Accident Reports - Work in Progress

Saferparks - U.S. Amusement Ride and Device Accident Records 2011-2016

In 2017, Saferparks sent public records requests to U.S. state and federal agencies that regulate the safety of amusement rides and devices.

  • 28 states and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission provided data. In a few cases, media reports have been included for accidents that were publicized but not provided as part of the public records request. The bulk of the accidents occurred in 2011-2016; however, a few reports were included for years outside that range.
  • Saferparks is still processing the 2017 data set (data cleanup, format harmonization, and incident/device categorization).

When the data set is complete, it will be integrated into the Saferparks Database. In the meantime, this page provides access to the 2017 data set as a work-in-progress.
