    When I was eight I went on a ride with my brother and they didn`t lock it shut. It was the ride where you sit and it spins around really fast. The centrifugal force was pulling me up and out of the ride and my brother had the bar by one hand and me by the other. I thought I was going to die that day.

    Never went on an amusement park ride since then.

    This is just sick whoever said Mildly amusing is a little freaky.
    To sum up the sickness
    Judge sentenced Turner to 90 days in jail, but suspended 75 (15 days) of them. Another 15 days in jail. The electrician who worked for the fair was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide for having improperly wired the ride -- he was sentenced to 30 days and 200 hours of community service. Chaffee was sentenced to six months in jail. a ride supervisor was sentenced to 90 days in jail after he pleaded guilty.

    I do not think in total there is a full year in there, sad really that a boy of eight is dead and these fools get off easy for being lazy. I hope to hell the parents win. I do not go on rides anymore because. When i hear gears grind and churn like most do around my area I get kinda get freaked out. Gettin hurt on the rides is one thing (its not ok but it happens)but getting killed while standing in line is another. fing sad.

    Anyway, this used to be my worst fear; Anything going wrong with an amusment park ride. It started when I started jumping roller coasters off track in Roller Coaster Tycoon.

    that really isn`t too bad....not even as bad as i thought it would be....notice that most of these accidents are just stranding people or minor injuries...

    i know that`s still bad....but think about the odds of getting hurt while on a`ll be about the same as being struck by lightning.

    I was on a roller coaster that quit working in the middle of a tunnel once. They turned on some lights and evacuated us, it was pretty weird.

    Did anyone hear about the janitor that was picking up trash near a coaster and stuck his head up between the slats in the track? Or was that just a rumor?
