As the owner or operator of a large amusement park, the last thing you want is a story about a massive power outage at your facility - showing park-goers stranded at the top of a giant Ferris wheel - going viral on the internet. Not only can this type of attention be destructive from a public relations perspective, but having the world see that your park was not protected by a reliable backup power generator can potentially affect your future attendance numbers.
Loss of power can affect all industries, but when it comes to amusement parks, a reliable source of power is especially important. To start, the safety of all park-goers is of the utmost importance. But what about the food? The reliability of an amusement park's refrigerators and freezers is essential.
According to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, every year approximately 290 million people visit more than 400 amusement parks and attractions in the United States, and the parks and attractions generate approximately $12 billion in revenues each year. The amusement park industry is extensive, and no matter what causes a power outage, it's crucial that dependable backup power generators be ready to provide a backup power source at all hours of the day and night.
