And that’s the reason I refuse to go on carnival or state fair rides. Amusement parks are different, those rides are built to be there. At carnivals and fairs they put them together in the parking lot. Not for us!!!

Yes, you are so right. Half of the people working at carnivals look like they run a meth lab on the side. Will never let me daughter ride these rides.

Why does the headline say “Deadly Carnival Accident” if no one died?

What parent would put a toddler on a ride like that? You must pass a test to become a driver. You should have to take a test to become a parent because many are unfit and just keep having more children to screw up.
