Amusement Devices at an Event
If want to have mechanical amusement devices (i.e. merry-go-round and ferris wheel etc) at your event, you will require a permit to operate each one. Applications for permits must be received 10 business days prior to your event. Amusement devices cannot be operated before a permit is issued. See our website on amusement devices for all information and the application form.
Land-borne inflatable (LBI) devices (i.e. bouncy castles, inflatable water slides etc) do not currently require a permit to operate, however operators have a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of users. For more information, see Worksafe's website.
Registration of amusement device/s by the owner / operator are issued by WorkSafe New Zealand.
Please note: A current registration must be held by the owner / operator before applying to Council for a permit to operate.
