A poll conducted by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital reveals that one in five parents do not speak with their children about safety issues at amusement parks. These safety conversations hardly occur especially in terms of what to do if their kids get lost.
Almost 90% of parents mentioned, "that their child had to stay with them or another adult at all times".
Six percent of parents said they usually "set check-in times to make contact, either in person or by phone". Also, about 79% of parents said they spoke with their child regarding what to do if that child got lost or was separated from the parent.
Omnico conducted research which reveals that more than 71% of parents would like a theme park app installed on their children’s phones as a means of having a clear picture of their kids' whereabouts.
