Amusement Devices Operating Permits

Operating permits are required for amusement rides and devices, including waterslides, ziplines, train rides, wakeboard tows and inflatables. 

Acceptance Inspection

An operating permit is issued after the amusement device has passed the acceptance inspection and the operating permit invoice has been paid. Additional fees may be charged if the amusement device does not pass the acceptance inspection. See the Amusement Devices Fee Schedule.


Permits must be renewed each year. BCSA will mail a renewal reminder and form 30 days before the operating permit expires. Please renew in person at any BCSA office or by phone (1-866-566-7233). A renewal fee will be charged.
