Six Flags, Disney World and Universal spend tens of millions on safety

Published:

At amusement parks like Six Flags, Disney World and Universal — safety is a multimillion-dollar business.

Injuries and deaths have gotten increasingly rare, with fewer than 1 injury per million rides in 2019, in response to the National Safety Council. Ride-related injuries dropped by greater than 60% between 2004 and 2019, in response to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.

“Whenever you have a look at the the the 157 million rides that we deliver in a 12 months, and once you have a look at us versus other industries, you will see that we’re a really protected industry,” said Jason Freeman, vp of security, safety, health & environmental at Six Flags. “You are more prone to be injured in your strategy to a theme park in your automobile than you’re at a theme park.”

The amusement park industry is emerging from two years of a pandemic-induced sales slump, but is anticipated to achieve $16.8 billion in revenue in 2022.
