Kids need a stable riding position to safely handle the motion and intensity of amusement rides.
Older riders and people with pre-existing medical conditions may be at higher risk of injury on some types of rides.
Who's running the rides and are they paying attention to safety?
Some rides may be too intense for some riders.
Equipment failure is relatively rare on amusement rides, but if a ride looks rickety or poorly maintained, avoid it.
Containment and restraint can be affected by patron size, position, and behavior, as well as acceleration.
