Kentucky Amusement Regulations

Just to put some structure around the regulatory scheme in Kentucky...

KRS 247.232 [PDF] defines amusement rides and attractions in a way that would seem to include Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.  This regulation provides for inspections by the state, I think annually.  Then this regulation requires reporting of all serious injuries (requiring physician care) and deaths.

Thanks to Kathy Fackler for providing a link to her collection of the reports made in Kentucky in the past four years.  None are from Six Flags.  I'm rather surprised, and frankly a little skeptical, that only four events took place in that time frame.
