    Not content with just writing off their own train, they also decided to destroy the lifthill catwalks too!

    I've been playing with my new A3 Scanner. Was wondering how this tragedy would be reported now?

    China - 16 injured, 3 seriously, as swing ride malfunctions. Sounds like it lowered over speed so the chairs collided with onlookers.



    Looks like a knockoff starflyer. Of all rides to knockoff a starflyer is probably about the worst idea I can think of. The legit ones aren't exactly reliable!

    Not doing great things for the reputation and safety image of the travelling fair industry, showan jailed for causing life changing injuries to two other drivers when his dangerously poorly maintained towing ride vehicle crashed as the 20 year old cracked tyre burst. Not sure what the ride actually was, I believe the family owns a set of Waltzers but I don't think it looks like those.

    The main trailer did not have a working braking system. So i wonder how long it is before the showman guild MOT exemption is removed.

    Couldn't quite find the right thread for this, but iilluminaughtii (one of my favourite YouTubers) has just uploaded this video on the infamous Action Park. I haven't got around to watching it yet, but if it's anything like the rest of her content (mainly based around examining dodgy business practices and multi-level marketing), then it should be very good. She always makes clear that she does a lot of research into her content, and fully credits all sources.
