I found it scary just watching it and on YouTube someone commented about the owners not expecting tragedies. I was appalled when I saw people doing and testing their own safety bars. Surely staff should be testing those? 400 feet up in a swing? No way would I ever be up there!

There is NO WAY I would ever get on that, you would have to have nerves of steel

A few years ago I was staying in a Hotel in Las Vegas, can't remember the name . but it was very tall. There was an observation lounge near the top and a roundabout outside with carriages . Iv'e still got the Caricature a sketch artist drew of me....didn't do me any favoursLOL
anyway, while we were there a fault developed and it was over an hour before the people in the carriages could be rescued , can you imagine how they felt.!!!The ride was immediately closed down.

Gordon Bennett! Fancy being stuck, dangling 400 feet up there if that Sky Screamer broke down! Yikes!

Kitti, I remember many years ago I went to a Funfair with my Sister, her son and my two boys, the youngest being about 5 yrs old. The Funfair was new to me and my Sister suggested that while the older Boys were on the Dodgems I take the youngest on one of those Ferris Wheels saying it goes around slowly. I held him on my lap and he was young enough to fall under the Bar , the Ferris Wheel went quite fast and I was terrified , kept yelling at the owner as we reached ground level to let me off but he thought I was joking. I finally got off safely and was promptly sick !!!! I won't tell you what I called my Sister.
