Holiday World ride crew earns safety awardMarch 8, 2019
From Local Sources
SANTA CLAUS — For the second year in a row, Holiday World’s team of ride operators has received the industry’s top award in ride operations excellence.
The award, presented by International Ride Training of Nashville, Tennessee, is the result of scores earned during an unannounced safety audit at Holiday World during the 2018 season.
“It is a privilege to witness these ride operators in action,” says IRT’s Erik Beard. “The focus on safety, both from these parks and their operators, is evident in their training and performance. To achieve this award takes full commitment, teamwork and real dedication to guest safety.”
Holiday World’s crew of 175 ride operators received high scores in all categories during an unannounced third-party safety audit last season. According to IRT, Holiday World is the only park to receive this award two years in a row.
“This award is a result of the remarkable dedication of our Attractions Team,” says Matt Eckert, Holiday World’s president. “Whether it’s a children’s canoe ride or a 17-story-tall roller coaster, our team members always keeps safety as their top priority.”
