Online Laws and Regulations:
The state amusement ride law excludes non-mechanized playground equipment, challenge or obstacle courses, and inflatable amusement devices.
A separate law tracks injuries at trampoline parks.
Amusement rides must be inspected annually by an insurance inspector or local government inspector.
Trampoline courts must be inspected annually by an insurance inspector.
Only for trampoline courts - Calls to emergency responders must be reported to the Dept. of Fire Building and Life Safety.
(1) As of January 2008, Arizona's only local government amusement ride inspection programs were in Navajo tribal lands and in the City of Prescott.
(2) Trampoline courts are minimally regulated under a different statute, which follows the same industry self-regulation model, but requires accidents to be reported to the Dept. of Fire Building and Life Safety and imposes patron responsibilities on trampoline court customers. The state law preempts local governments from imposing stronger safety oversight. See http://dfbls.az.gov/trampolinecourt/.aspx
