Export of Japanese Amusement Park Operation Method

Export of Japanese Amusement Park Operation Method


True Safety of Amusement Parks Theme Parks can be Achieved

​Experienced in two major theme parks in Japan and consulting more than ten local amusement parks in Asia.
No major accident has occurred at my clients’ amusement parks since then.
Taking the size and actual operation state into account, I introduce the latest operation method to each amusement park.

Client comments;

“There are no accidents nor worker injuries after we asked Gun-san for advice.”
“Successfully lowered the maintenance cost while maintaining safety, and as a result, lead to gaining benefit.”
“We were starting to lose hope but now we have more guests coming.”

It would be very grateful if I can be of any help as a safety management/business consultant specialized in amusement parks and theme parks to restore turnout at your local parks.

Attraction Maintenance


Perform appropriate maintenance to prevent unexpected failures and accidents on attractions, and enhance prolonging the life of the attraction.
Recently the difficulty of maintenance due to complication of attraction structure is regarded an issue. In addition, there are cases which maintenance stated in the standard manual not covering individual differences enough, such as installed environment, usage frequency or aging deterioration. Determining whether the maintenance is optimized for each attraction is required. 


  1. Optimize maintenance work by re-examining maintenance item and cycle using two difference approaches; one is a theoretical approach which each part is scored with its severity level based on its characteristics. The other approach is an onsite-based approach where actual use environment and deterioration state is evaluated. 

  2. Safety training with maintenance personnel and preparation of maintenance inspection manual.
