ALBANY, NY-If your summer plans include visiting an amusement park, there are a few things you'll want to know to ensure it's a fun and safe experience for you and your family.
"This summer promises to be a great season of family fun in New York, while remembering that safety comes first", said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The state's Labor Department's park safety web site offers parents helpful tips on ride safety. The site also provides an opportunity for anyone to e-mail the Department to report unsafe conditions.
The DOL inspects rides at stationary parks at least once a year and at traveling carnivals and fairs every time a ride is set up at a new location.
