SANTA FE — The New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department is cautioning New Mexicans to be wary of unlicensed carnival ride and bounce house operators.

“With the carnival and summer season upon us, it is imperative to consumer safety that our operators are licensed,” said Marguerite Salazar, superintendent of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department. “Please call us before you hire a carnival, amusement ride or bounce house operator, to verify that they meet our strict safety standards.”

The state of New Mexico requires that licensed operators conduct daily inspections, receive an annual inspection, receive annual certification and carry liability insurance of at least $3 million in aggregate.

Questions regarding the safe operation of popular inflatables like bounce houses and various amusement rides should be directed to the department’s executive director at 505-476-4853 or paulina.Robinson@state.nm.us.

The Regulation and Licensing Department’s mission is to ensure that New Mexicans receive quality care and services from qualified professionals.
