Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioSecurity is top-of-mind at Lagoon after a death and two serious injuries at amusement parks across the country in recent days.
Lagoon insists it goes to great lengths to avoid these horrific accidents. "Every ride at Lagoon, every day before it is opened to the public, three separate inspections take place," says Dick Andrews with the amusement park.
Added up, millions of dollars and thousands of hours per year are spent on safety. Andrews tells KSL's Nightside Project that ride operators also are thoroughly trained. They go through hours of training and tests.
