Revision of F2291-21 Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices


The purpose of this ballot is to call out in F2291 the responsibility of a ride designer for patron evacuations on new ride/attraction designs.  The previous ballot on this subject did not provide enough content as to the purpose of this Evacuation Analysis and this new effort adds that.  This ballot calls for the designer to analyze the ride/attraction design for likely patron evacuations points.  Per F770, the owner/operator will develop the evacuation plan for the ride/attraction.  The Evacuation Analysis will be available to the owner/operator and will provide information that is needed to accomplish the efforts in developing the evacuation plan for the specific ride/attraction.  The resulting communication between the owner/operator and designer is intended to improve evacuations when they occur.
