Kings Island was honored this month at the International Ride Operator Safety School as one of four parks to receive the 2018 International Ride Operating Certification Audit Excellence Award.
Of the thousands of amusement ride operators throughout the United States that are trained to perform to the rigorous safety, efficiency, and professionalism standards of the International Ride Operator Certification program, the ride operators at Kings Island demonstrated the highest level of performance in each of these areas during their 2018 unannounced iROC certification audits.
“I’m incredibly proud of the rides team,” Kings Island’s Director of Park Operations Rick Belhumeur said. “They truly take pride in providing our guests safe and memorable experiences.”
The International Ride Operator Certification program requires amusement and water parks to train and adhere to International Ride Training’s proprietary “Ten Critical Components” of ride operations safety, efficiency and professionalism designed specifically to ensure that guests of iROC parks, from small children to seasoned thrill seekers, have the safest and most enjoyable day of their summers. iROC-certified parks also submit to unannounced audits from IRT auditors who gauge ride operator performance on over thirty criteria each ride cycle to ensure that operators are performing at a level commensurate with their training.
Kings Island is currently accepting applications for ride operators for the upcoming 2019 season online. In this position, you'll be learning, growing and having fun while gaining skills for life as you take on the responsibilities of this important role.
