Ulaanbaatar’s only rollercoaster operates with faulty brakes


The Ulaanbaatar Specialized Inspection Agency evaluated the maintenance of the rollercoaster at the National Amusement Park early this week and discovered several safety issues.
The rollercoaster was installed at the park last year and was tested and approved by the State Special Commission on April 16, 2014.
However, the on-site inspection revealed that the front spring of the train’s brake, which prevents rollback on tracks, was missing, while its rear spring was broken, which is a clear sign of poor daily maintenance and check-up.
The rollercoaster operators were trained and documented, although they didn’t have professional licenses.
In addition, the inspection found that the rollercoaster staff and operators violated occupational safety and internal regulations by not showing up to work.
