criteria designed to improve and maintain excellence in amusement ride safety, professionalism, and
efficiency. This year's iROC Audit Excellence Award winners rated highly in all areas consistently.
While discussing the award, Patty Beazley of IRT, LLC commented, “IRT audited nearly 500 rides in
2017, and Cedar Point, Holiday World, and California's Great America consistently demonstrated
overall excellence in ride operations. It is impressive to watch a team of operators so focused on
guest safety, while consistently engaging with each rider. Their passion is evident and
overwhelming.” Cindee Huddy of IRT, LLC added, “Safe and efficient ride operation is a learned skill
that requires multi-tasking and attention to detail each and every cycle. These award winning teams
made it look easy, and have set an example the industry should strive to emulate."
