Safety First: Ensuring a Safe and Enjoyable Experience with Amusement Rides

When you’re operating amusement rides, you simply can’t be safe or precautious enough. Safety is our top priority at Advanced Amusements, and we simply wouldn’t be allowed to operate if this wasn’t the case. Australia has very strong safety measures in place in terms of inspecting and auditing amusement ride operators, which are routinely conducted throughout the year.

Growing up, most of us had that one uncle who was a lot of fun but, looking back on it, wasn’t too big on safety. He’d build you a billy-cart, but it had no brakes. He took you on his jet ski, but wasn’t a believer in life jackets. He took you for your first driving lesson… when you were 11 years old.

We love that uncle, but he simply wouldn’t cut it with today’s safety standards!

Advanced Amusements is like a team full of fun uncles, except we take safety extremely seriously, maintaining a record of zero incidents in our history of amusement ride operation.

Here’s how we put safety first to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with amusement rides.

Safety at Advanced Amusements

When you’re operating amusement rides, you simply can’t be safe or precautious enough. Safety is our top priority at Advanced Amusements, and we simply wouldn’t be allowed to operate if this wasn’t the case. Australia has very strong safety measures in place in terms of inspecting and auditing amusement ride operators, which are routinely conducted throughout the year.

  • Complying with the Australian Standards
    Advanced Amusements conducts rigorous safety maintenance in order to comply with the official Australian Standards on amusement devices: AS3533.1-4. This set of standards provides a guideline on design and construction, operation and maintenance, in-service inspections, as well as specific requirements for land-borne inflatable devices. We adhere to the Australian Standards in order to keep every rider safe at all times.
  • Advanced daily safety protocols
    At Advanced Amusements, we run several tests at the start of the day before we allow anyone on our rides. Once these checks are successful, we can be sure that everything is totally safe to use.
  • Insurance
    In order to qualify for insurance, amusement operators need to prove that their operations are 100% safe. Advanced Amusements are fully-insured and licenced to operate amusement rides. Insurance is a sign of a legitimate amusement ride hire team, illustrating that they run operations by the book.
  • Ensuring correct instructions are given to riders
    Proper instructions for riders is also a big part of managing the risk associated with ride hire. Are height restrictions being enforced correctly? Are riders being advised to remove their sunglasses and jewellery before riding? These details are some of the most important things to check.

Ensuring safety is a big part of having fun. Because when our operations are safe, they’re fun for everyone! Advanced Amusements are Melbourne’s best team for fantastically fun and totally safe amusement ride hire.
