INSPECTION: Rides are inspected on first "setup" each year. They are then subject to inspection each additional time they are "setup".

Climbing walls inspected by the State of Indiana will be a paperwork inspection. The State of Indiana will look at:

  • Engineering Plans and Drawings
  • Operations Manual
  • Inspection Records and Logs - to be performed by Qualified 3rd Party Inspector
  • Staff Training Records and Certficates.

The State of Indiana will not physically inspect the structure or belay systems. Having a state inspection is a duty to demponstrate to the state that you are in compliance with the law and that is it. You must hire a 3rd party inspector to perform a hands on inspection of your climbing wall or tower in the state of Indiana.
