    When the summer comes around, many families head out to spend a fun day enjoying water slides, roller coasters and other attractions. When children are out of school for vacation, family entertainment centers see larger crowds and the potential for brisk business, but also greater risks. Preparing for the dangers that go along with warm […] Read more

    “Winter isn’t coming…”

    Ok, I am asking for some literary latitude here as I stand upon my virtual soapbox. Many of you may be aware of the omnipresent phrase “Winter is coming” based on HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones.” In the series, the theme of “winter” is taking on many meanings. The obvious is that a literal […] Read more

    Sadly, We Have New Threats To Consider…

    We spend most of our time worrying about the safety of our patrons and employees as it relates to our rides, our midways, our food, our fleets and our service.  All of which require absolute attention to detail and a focus on safety.  There is a commonality amongst them…by in large we can control them.  […] Read more

    Safety Matters

    Slip, trip and fall incidents account for approximately 60% of all the claims filed in the amusement industry, by employees or guests.  These instances are, however, one of the most preventable types of personal injury claim. The cost of a slip, trip or fall incident is significant, with some of the worst-case scenario settlements stretching […] Read more

    Back In The Barn and Fixing Things…

    It seems like yesterday when the season started.  There was huge anticipation looking ahead to the spring, summer and fall that lay ahead.  New spots, old spots, new friends and old; all would occupy a place in our minds as the season played out.  Hopefully, for you, the season was a grand one.  Now as […] Read more

    It’s A New Age…With New Risks!

    Credit cards and debit cards have become ubiquitous.  They are convenient.  Everyone takes them.  They truly are replacing cash in most consumer interactions.  While many carnivals and concessionaires still live in an all cash world, more and more are moving toward accepting credit and debit cards.  Recently, I did a very un-scientific study by checking […] Read more

    You Know the Amusement Business…

    …shouldn’t your insurance broker?  For years I have been amazed when I come across an FEC or Park that is represented by a generalist insurance broker.  Mind you, these brokers may be fine insurance professionals, but they don’t know the industry.  They don’t know the difference between a Shaller and a J&J Kart, a Zipper […] Read more

    Up, up and Away…In Those Beautiful Balloons…

    Alright, maybe I am dating myself with the 5th Dimension / Dionne Warwick song reference, but I found it particularly applicable to this month’s topic…inflatables. Inflatables of all shapes, sizes and configurations have become common attractions on today’s midways.  They are relatively inexpensive, easy to move, set up and kids love them.  For years, the […] Read more
