Traveling Carnivals and County Fairs

Q: How do the ADA Standards apply to amusement rides at traveling carnivals?

A: Mobile or portable amusement rides typical to traveling carnivals, county fairs, and festivals are not required to comply with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design. However, accessible features still need to be provided at other areas of the event used by attendees—such as parking, toilet rooms, and concession areas—even if the carnival is temporary in nature.
