All the rides at the State Fair are thoroughly checked before they are made available to the visitors. Freak accidents happen, and when you or your child climbs onto a rickety, twirly, thingamajig operated by a guy named Rad, you're accepting that possibility.

All rides at the Boardwalk are inspected daily, weekly, monthly and yearly under safety protocols established by Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), said spokesman Kris Reyes.

Johnson said the Dutch manufacturer of the Fireball ride that failed at the State Fair last week did visit OH as a part of its investigation into what happened, and is now back in Holland looking at the situation with a team of engineers. Wristbands for fair rides that open Monday at 4 p.m. run $18 and a discounted $12 on Wednesday's family night.

"For our own peace of mind, we're going to go the extra mile", Davis said. We can't tell from the reports whether that specific part was tested. Though they have not been instructed to do so, Davis said her company planned to set up the Nitro this week and have it inspected as an extra precaution.

"If there is any incident, someone got a cut or a scrape or something, we go up and check what it was, where it happened and how it happened to make sure that we get it addressed immediately", he said. Then, in repeated examinations, so did state inspectors. There are no Federal regulations.

Screams coming from amusement park rides as riders are slung back and forth, up and down, are a common sound at fairs and festivals during the summer months.
