Club and condos with amusement rides to comply with Amusement Rides Safety Act

Published on Apr 11, 2014 12:56 PM

Amusement rides at private clubs and private residential estates are now included and regulated under the Amusement Rides Safety Act, said Minister of National Development Khaw Boon Wan in a blog post.

This amendment kicked in on April 1, and will mean that clubs and condominiums with amusement rides must hire managers and engineers to maintain the ride.

At least four clubs are affected, and they have six months to comply with the new rules.

If they do so, they will add to the 80 amusement rides in Singapore, which vary from roller coasters to indoor skydiving.
