Here Are Some Things To Keep In Mind Before Getting On A Carnival Ride This Summer [VIDEO]

After the tragedy in Texas involving a roller coaster. I thought this story might be timely.If you’re like me the smaller venues are the ones you worry about the most. The State of Michigan has its own ride inspectors to make sure parks are following safety regulations before allowing carnivals and fairs to open. Inspectors are normally on site for a few days.

According to the State of Michigan, only about 30 amusement ride related injuries are reported to the state annually, compared to the estimated 50 to 100 million rides taken in Michigan each year. A study of injuries over a twelve year period showed eighty percent were caused by the rider’s own actions.

You can find more information about amusement ride safety, including tips for parents, at saferparks.org.More in the video.
