Amusement rides and parks are regulated in part by the State of Wisconsin Department of Commerce. Pursuant to Section (Commerce) 34.41 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code, the owner / operator of the amusement ride has a duty to notify the Department of Commerce of every accident or incident involving a personal injury that requires more than just onsite first aide. The reporting of accidents and incidents is required by law. The reporting of incidents and accidents provides documentation for the state regulators for investigation and possible action to either shut the ride or amusement park down or make remedial recommendations to provide for the safety and protection of guests including children. You can review the actual document required for the reporting of these personal injury incidents and accidents at Wisconsin Amusement Ride Accident Report Form.
