- Always follow all posted height, weight, age and health restrictions, as well as all loading or seating-order instructions.
- Always use safety equipment such as seat belts and safety bars, and keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times.
- If you don't think your child will be able to follow the rules, keep him or her off the ride. If you are worried about the safety of a ride, don't let your child go on it.
- Do not let your child go on a mall ride if it is over a hard, unpadded surface or if it does not have a child restraint such as a seat belt.
