What is an amusement ride compliance sticker?

An amusement ride compliance sticker is issued by TDI when the amusement ride meets all of the legal requirements for operating in Texas.

Like an inspection sticker for your car, an amusement ride compliance sticker is valid for one year from the date of inspection.

The amusement ride compliance sticker should be affixed to a major component of each ride in a location visible to the riders.
