Where wheelchair spaces are entered only from the side, amusement rides shall be designed to permit sufficient maneuvering clearance for individuals using a wheelchair or mobility aid to enter and exit the ride.
Advisory 1002.4.4.2 Side Entry.  The amount of clear space needed within the ride, and the size and position of the opening are interrelated.  A 32 inch (815 mm) clear opening will not provide sufficient width when entered through a turn into an amusement ride.  Additional space for maneuvering and a wider door will be needed where a side opening is centered on the ride.  For example, where a 42 inch (1065 mm) opening is provided, a minimum clear space of 60 inches (1525 mm) in length and 36 inches (915mm) in depth is needed to ensure adequate space for maneuvering.
