International Ride Training (IRT) announced the 2018 International Ride Operator Certification Audit Excellence Award winners and Valleyfair ranked among the top four parks.

The ride operators at Valleyfair demonstrated the highest levels of performance in safety, efficiency, and professionalism during their 2018 unannounced iROC certification audits. "To achieve this award takes full commitment, teamwork, and real dedication to guest safety," Erik Beard of IRT said.

All of Valleyfair's ride operators complete a day of classroom training and certification before advancing to in the park, hands-on training. "We are constantly dedicated to safe ride operation and this year we went above and beyond when it came to guest interaction and service," Andy Bursey, Valleyfair's Rides Manager, said. 
 
Award recipients were honored at the International Ride Operator Safety School at the PARK at OWA February 5 -8, 2019.
