Amusement Ride Program

The Amusement Ride Program provides administrative assistance, education, training, and awareness within the State of Oklahoma to ensure the safety of citizens enjoying amusement rides.

Our program is committed to delivering professional, reliable, and efficient services for those governed and affected by the amusement ride industry, in compliance with state statutes, to promote a safer Oklahoma.

Inspection and Safety

Inspectors from the Oklahoma Department of Labor perform annual inspections of all amusement rides at permanent amusement parks. Mobile amusement rides are inspected every time they are relocated. Additionally, our inspectors conduct ongoing surveillance throughout the year to ensure rides are operated in accordance with state laws.

Program Services

Our program serves owners and operators of both permanent and temporary amusement ride attractions within Oklahoma, including:

  • Water parks
  • Permanent parks
  • Carnivals
  • Zip lines
  • Ropes courses

We serve the general public by ensuring that all rides are registered, insured, inspected, and safe for operation. Approximately 3,600 amusement rides are registered and inspected annually.
