I think I'm going to go to Dade County Fair tomorrow. As some of you may know, this is the fair with last week's Gravitron accident. I'm sure most of the rides are safe, but would you go on them? I don't think I'll be going on their other Gravitron (nor eating their Sushi). Would you go on their rides after such a recent accident? (it should be empty because of this)

I'd go. I'd have to see the sushi before making up my mind, but yeah, I'd probably pass on that as well.

In a heartbeat I'd go. I don't ride stuff at fairs, I go for the food and the exhibits. As far as I am concerned if it is a fair ride, i.e. operated by a travelling carnival company, it is not something I am going to take a chance on. I'll watch them though, and I like to take pictures of them too.

If you wanted to you could check out the rides for missing pins. Sometimes even whole steel bars are broken. Things are hard to spot if you don't know what you are looking for.

I go to fairs to eat corn dogs... so if they got those I would go. If it was cheap :)

I will ride the ones that I feel comfortable riding. Personally, I hate Gravitrons, and think they are unsafe, plus I don't know what is so exciting about the feeling of wanting to vomit and if the Gravitrons are anything liek the ones in Iowa, they blast the music so loud you can't even hear yourself think and give you massive headaches. If I see a ride that look halfway safe and is running well ,I'll ride it. You won't see me near Zipper's and bungee cord rides, because even though they may be safe according to the government, you just never know.
