Anyone know what ride this?
Seems pretty unsafe but wouldn't you think a fair would have the same rules and regulations as a carnival. And we wonder why there are so many accidents.

It's homemade...you won't find any manufacturer selling one.

You're wrong Moosh. It is made by Intamin. ;)

I was just wondering if anyone went to that fair and knew what they called it. "DEath Trap" maybe?

It would be more fun (to watch) if it were a barbed wire fence. Capacity might be pretty good though, one yokel every 8 seconds or so...

That is definetely home made, no company could get away with that with lawsuits nowadays. Of course if it was commercially made then it would have OTSRs and only go 5 mph...
I like backyard rides but this one is just dumb and dangerous.

That is just plain hilarious.

...But don't worry, injuries will be few because it'll be broke down most of the time.

Wow...That's pretty stupid.
And the guy wasn't even wearing a helmet.

He was wearing A helmet. If he's stupid enough to ride that, then he should consider wearing that helmet 24/7.

I think that it is called the "Darwin-Go-Round".
