The act says no amusement ride may be operated in Kansas unless a valid permit for the ride has been issued by KDOL and the owner of the ride has registered with KDOL as an amusement ride owner. In order to obtain a permit to operate an amusement ride in Kansas, the owner must first submit an application packet with KDOL. The owner must submit proof of insurance, report of itinerary, certification of inspection by a qualified inspector, and written certification that the ride meets the applicable ASTM International F24 committee standard.
