The ride itself does not scare me however after spending some time working on a carnival it's the people who put them together that make me nervous. I have a tendency to watch a ride in motion, listen to the motor, and especially watch the operator before getting in line for any ride. If I ever see an operator that turns their back while the ride is running that is an instant red flag for me and I will move on to another ride. An operator who does not watch their ride is not aware of their riders and may not catch if safety harnesses are not properly secured, the ride breaks or if one of the riders is sick. Knowing how often rides for traveling carnivals in your state can often give piece of mind if the inspections are at least once for every location by a state inspector as some traveling carnivals may not receive a state inspection but once every few months and major underlying problems with the ride can be present without an operator knowing it. Operators are required to inspect their rides at open and close and multiple times during the operating hours however sometimes when a company hires the not so attentive ride attendant and operator these inspections and even proper maintenance may not be performed as often as they should be. Going to stationary parks such as Disney give me a piece of mind that the ride is up to safety code however using your best judgement is always the best idea.
