(YouTube) Video Ever wonder how they set up those huge fairground attractions that look like they should be permanant fixtures but actually move from place to place? First thing you do is bolt 3 trucks together and go from there   ( youtube.com) divider line

Never seen a safe ride, eh subby?

I avoid fairground rides because I'm convinced the ones who assemble them don't know how to spell assemble.

I can sort of understand why they are expensive.  That took quite a number of people to put it together over the better part of two days.  Minus the drug deal at about the 2:35 mark.

Also.  Nacho chips on a stick!?

All you need is two spud wrenches and some uppers.

Maybe a harness and some yoyos, if OSHA is nearby.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: An iffin ya lose some a the bolts, you kin use duck tape and bailin' whar.


That reminds me of the one year in which the contractor to supply the midway showed up with a bunch of rides and stuff that looked like they had been dragged out of a farm yard someplace, hastily hosed off and had the rusty bits spray painted over.

Turned out the outfit had double booked and tried to cover both.   They owned up to it and the contracted was voided and a new and better company hired on after that.

This is for my local county fair.

One of the main reasons to go to the fair is the adrenaline rush you can only get by strapping yourself into a rickety contraption propelling you through the air at 100 mph, assembled by a man who looks like he has black tar heroin for blood.

I looked up origin thinking it was Canada.  No, it was another former colony that places a premium on safety.

15 minutes of time lapse video? TL;DW

Why was this posted in 'Discussion'? Geek or Main would have been more relevant
