Taiwanese amusement parks fall short in regulatory checks

Taipei, Dec. 30 (CNA) None of 17 randomly selected amusement parks around Taiwan passed all five major regulatory checks carried out by the Cabinet's Consumer Protection Committee, according to a statement released Monday. The 17 amusement parks, located in Taipei, New Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Kaohsiung and Taoyuan County, were each found to have violated at least one of a series of checks that the committee conducted in October, the statement said. The checks cover amusement facility management, environmental sanitation, gift coupon management, construction safety management and fire control management. Cheer Baby in Taoyuan was the only amusement park that failed to pass any one of the five checks, while MY+DNA Playground in Taipei and Kidsburgh's Taoyuan branch did not pass four of them, the statement said. The three parks have made improvements since then in only some of the areas that failed to meet standards. The statement said that of the 17 amusement parks surveyed, 13 failed the amusement facility management check, eight failed the gift coupon management check, 10 were in violation of construction safety management regulations, eight failed in the fire control management area, and nine did not meet environmental sanitation standards.
