I don't always design carnival rides, but when I do, I install an ejection button.

There is a button that will throw you from the ride while it is in motion? That seems like a tragic event waiting to happen...

Oh, wait.

It appears that the Sheriff's Department and the Fair Authorities are having a difference of opinion.

The Fair Authorities are saying that no one got thrown from the ride:

"We have been informed of some misinformation that is being reported. There has been NO one thrown from a ride at the Delta Fair. What is being reported by the Shelby County Sheriff's office is grossly inaccurate."

"Delta Fair owner Mark Lovell said the ride was slowing down and the ride operator pushed the release button and safely freed people from the ride. However, the sheriff's office conflicts these reports."

More information from the Fair Authorities:

"We did have a ride, the Moonraker, that had the lap bar released early as the ride was slowing to an end. The release of the lap bar did cause some riders to become nervous and scared. None of the riders were injured and all walked away safely. As a precautionary measure we had the riders checked out by our onsite EMS services and then had the riders at their request sent to the Hospital for strictly precautionary reasons.

"THE DELTA FAIR IS OPEN & ONCE AGAIN NO ONE WAS INJURED OR THROWN."

Right. Let's make a large dangerous spinning metal wheel and put people inside, and not put any safety mechanisms on the controls. Good idea!

I wonder why we haven't heard of THAT ever happening. People get left spinning for like 8 hours because the carny just left.

lol exactly. It's scary to think that so many people get on these rides so trusting, and they barely have a clue that the entire ride is actually controlled by that carny and that their lives are actually in his hands.

I do a lot of automation work...something was reprogrammed or a safety was "Jumped out" to allow this to happen.

Stuff like this is setup so certain buttons/functions will no engage/dis-engage unless the machine in in the "Home" position...in this case boarding/un-boarding

"Didn't know there was a "throw people off the ride" button."

Fair and carnival operators are nothing more than excons and people running from something. Never trust them.
