While the issue of roller coaster safety is back in the public eye following the death of a woman on a roller coaster at the Six Flags Over Texas amusement park, a spokeswoman for Six Flags Magic Mountain says the park already has stringent safety measures in place to prevent any accidents.

“The safety of our guests and employees is our top priority,” read a statement released Tuesday by Sue Carpenter, spokeswoman for both Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. “We invest the greatest amount of resources in our safety and maintenance programs.”

Carpenter said all rides at the park are inspected daily to ensure they are safe to ride. Additionally, all rides are inspected at least once a year by a third-party consulting firm to make sure they meet appropriate safety standards.

The last reported injury incident at the theme park complex was in September, when a man was injured at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor after he flew off a water slide while going down the wrong way, according to park officials. The man was later transported to the hospital.
