Amusement Parks and Event Inspection & Violations

The New York State Department of Labor (DOL) inspects rides at every amusement park and traveling show located outside of New York City. All amusement rides are inspected on or before the scheduled start date of an event. Only those devices deemed safe are allowed to operate. Inspections are ongoing, and there can be a lag between the date of the inspection and the date the inspection results are posted online. Inspection results for each individual device will be posted within one week of the event start date. If an event does not appear on the DOL list, please report it immediately.

All amusement rides that pass inspection and are safe to ride will have a DOL inspection tag that is visible at the ride’s point of entry. If you do not see the tag, please ask the operator to show it to you. You can view a video to see what DOL inspects on amusement devices.

For more information, see the Frequently Asked Questions, and visit the Ride Safe NY website to review safety tips for parents and children.
