I logged onto AOL today and saw that there was another ride accident. How do you all feel about these and does it change your mind about going to theme parks and riding the rides?

I also saw the ride incident. I think it was on a ferris wheel, which was really surprising. Although, if you think about how many people ride amusement park rides and then compare these to automobile accidents...I think amusement rides are a lot safer than riding in a car. And most people ride in an automobile every day. I do hope that the safety inspectors start taking a little harder look at this and make sure these rides are safe. I thought they were supposed to have a backup feature in case the main mechanics fail.
