Amusement Ride Inspections

Compliant with Georgia Rule 120-3-28
performed by licensed mechanical engineers

Safety is the biggest priority when it comes to amusement rides. Beginning January 1, 2018, O.C.G.A. Section 25-15-85 requires that an engineering inspection be conducted on every carnival ride in order to be issued a permit to operate. ATS’ dedicated engineers can satisfy this requirement, providing thorough amusement ride inspections to evaluate the functionality of safety mechanisms and the condition of critical components.

We offer on-site engineering evaluations associated with Georgia Rule 120-3-28 for all portable rides including trackless trains, slides, and trampoline bungees. Our experienced engineers look for any signs of corrosion, stress, or fatigue on all component parts, referencing the manufacturer’s manual and bulletins to verify all required nondestructive testing is completed properly.

ASTM International’s F-24 Committee on Amusement Rides and Devices sets the standards for amusement parks. Our engineers possess the training and experience necessary to help clients adhere to the specifications outlined in these standards. Our examinations are performed by licensed Georgia registered Professional Engineers, mechanical discipline, additionally with current Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) certification from the American Welding Society.
