International Ride Training, the ‘gold’ standard in operational safety standards in the amusement park sector, has welcomed a new member of the International Ride Operator Certification (iROC) family of parks.

Fun Spot America Theme Park’s three locations in Atlanta, Kissimmee and Orlando are joining around 24 other theme parks and waterparks across the US and Canada. These destinations include Knott’s Berry Farm, Cedar Point, Elitch Gardens, Dreamworks Waterpark, American Dream, Nickelodeon Universe, among others.

The iROC Program is only third-party certification of ride operator safety, efficiency and professionalism in the world. The certification is built on the ‘Ten Critical Components of Ride Operator Safety.’

Mark Arie, chief operating officer of Fun Spot America Theme Parks, commented: “Fun Spot America has always been about “Safe, Clean Fun.” iROC is a perfect fit with this cultural belief. iROC has given us a framework for consistent training and accountability within our ride operations department that will bring a group of already impressive operators to the next level in terms of safety, professionalism, and efficiency.

“Whether in Orlando, Kissimmee, or Atlanta, we can’t wait for our guests to see the next set of iROC Ride Operators in action.”
