Man, this is the second incident in a week. Almost makes me scared to go to the fair.
Re-Mix....anybody know what that is....(I'd guess a Zamperla Mixer based on the name alone).....

It's basically an inverted orbiter.. pretty fun though.
Just watching news reprots on TV and the ride didn't actually collapse. Two of the chairs "just" broke off. Injuries are not life threatening.
Just because you won't die doesn't mean your life won't be changed forever or at least really, really suck.
Let's see who can get a date with a nice facial Road Rash.

Good Times!! Good Times!!
CCI Lives On!!!!
NBC 4 here in Columbus has video images of the aftermath. That car flew quite a ways, crashing through a barrier fence and onto the pavement. Thank goodness it went behind the ride and not toward any bystanders.

The scary thing is, is I was on that thing on Sunday. I never would have thought.
Add this to the Tango trailer they rolled and totaled before the fair, and Amusements of America are not having a very good year.
What do I get for being tossed out of the Magnum? (Mondial Shake)
Chuck, who is all healed and wants nothing as he was not seriously injured except for a huge bruise to the thigh.

You know, it's very odd that this should happen. I was watching the news here in Columbus a day before the fair opened and it said that there where many proffesional engineers and builders there. They even said that the rides where all checked more than enough just to be safe. This might be out of their control, but it's still kinda odd to me.

Sit up right, hold on tight!
