A Statement from the Outdoor Amusement Business Association                                             

 July 27,2017

Our entire industry is dedicated to the safety of the millions of people worldwide who utilize portable amusement rides. The Fire Ball was being operated by one of the most respected and long established companies in our industry and was designed and manufactured by a leading international maker of amusement rides. This incident took place despite multiple independent inspections of the ride and only a full and complete investigation can identify the issues or issues that led to this tragedy.

Our prayers are with those involved and our commitment as an industry is to identify the cause of this tragedy so that we can continue to provide safe family entertainment at fairs, festivals, and community events.
