Carnival Ride Inspections

dependable and decisive evaluation, every time.

The manufacture of carnival rides is regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The setup and maintenance however, are regulated by the state. State regulations are put in place as safety measures to help decrease the likelihood of equipment failure. ATS provides certified carnival ride inspections to ensure the safe and reliable operation of client assets in compliance with applicable regulations.

Per Georgia Rule 120-3-28 of the Carnival Ride Safety Act, all carnival owners are required to submit an engineering evaluation of their rides in order to be issued a permit to operate. Our professional engineers have the qualifications and expertise necessary to administer these evaluations and assist clients with their regulatory compliance needs. We have licensed mechanical engineers on staff, with certifications including AWS Certified Weld Inspector (CWI).


ATS evaluates the safety mechanisms and functionality of all portable rides including trampoline bungees, slides, and trains. These evaluations are thoroughly executed, covering every ride component and sub system (mechanical, pneumatic, electrical, and hydraulic). Our experts travel to you and recommend repairs or additional tests when necessary to meeting the requirements of the ride manufacturer.
