I don't trust the rides either. When I was a kid my friend's mom ran the speedway/fairground and would always get us a food tent bussing job when the fair came to town. It was run by the most vile, drunk group of gypsies I could ever imagine. They would fish stuff out of the trash and re-serve it. I would never trust those people to safely assemble, run or maintain a high-speed or high elevation midway ride. That said, I have always loved the haunted house /Funhouse type rides.. One day I will own one and keep it in my back yard..
