State Fair Issues Statement on 'Fire Ball' Ride Attraction

By	The Canadian Press

The type of ride that suffered a structural failure at a state fair in OH, sending one man to his death, will not be brought to this year's Canadian National Exhibition, organizers and regulators say. The major inspection is set for Tuesday morning. "That's our goal each year, to ensure safety for the fairgoers".

"They'll find out", he said.

For decades, almost all amusement rides were relatively tame machines such as Ferris wheels and merry-go-rounds or variations on them.

He says Missouri's stronger requirements means inspectors will begin their checks when rides arrive on site.

"The manufacturer's rules and regulations, as far as what they're looking for, and just common sense".

Riders - and often parents and grandparents who allow children to climb aboard the attractions - expect that no matter how scary they may be, they will be safe.

"Anything that even looks like, or smells like it could be related to that - we'll go through the rides comprehensively and we won't open them until they're safe".

Robert Gullion said he would prefer to see provincial safety inspections on rides in Edmonton before they're allowed to operate at K-Days, in addition to those that happen before the Calgary Stampede. It's a task they take very seriously. Officials issued a state permit for the ride to operator Amusements of America the same day. But during the past few decades, ever-more violent rides have become popular.

Peck encourages people who come to the fair to communicate with the staff about their experience.

Compared to other states, we do a pretty good job here with inspections.

"I'm sure everybody is going to refer back to what happened in OH, and that was a tragic incident, but I always tell everybody to stop before you ever get on a ride".

"Our thoughts are with those affected by the tragic accident in OH this evening", Cote said in an emailed statement.

However, for the first time, the fair will feature the "Wonder Wheel".

Monday was the 4-H King and Queen pageant. This year, Quinn Ayers and Hannah Hephner were crowned fair royalty.
