Standards State Regulations
Applicable state regulations pertaining to the Aerial Adventure Course industry are constantly evolving. The State Zip Line Regulations Chart linked below is intended to direct potential program developers towards a better understanding of the various regulations recognized by particular states. Individual states recognize specific standards relating to amusement park rides and devices, many of which utilize the ASTM F24 Standards. Of utmost importance is whether or not the state which recognizes the ASTM F24 Standards considers Aerial Adventure Courses to fall under the definintion of amusement rides and devices. In most instances, Aerial Adventure Courses are approached by various states on a case-by-case basis, and are regulated based upon the program’s fundamental focus. It must be understood that, even in cases where states do not regulate the industry, individual counties, cities, and/or regional environmental organizations or agencies may indeed regulate Aerial Adventure Course programs.
