What about the kiddie ferris wheel that malfunctioned and broke several foot rests off of the seats they were attached to? No one got hurt but the possiblities of someone losing thier feet were definately there. I know, I watched it happen. I also didn't see a big red safety shut off button - which would have come in handy here. Anyone else see/hear about this?

I was there with my son when that happened. i'm shocked that didnt make the news. the small ferris wheel kept going, even though the little plank that riders stand on as they get on and off the rides was up. that caused the ferris wheel cars, specifically the foot rests on the cars, to hit the plank. this continued for about 10 cars.
the maple festival is getting old now. it's too expensive, too cold, and just a little too worrisome now for me to ignore these mishaps as just incidents of chance.

First of all to Discustapated the ride you refer to as a Kiddy ferris Wheel is actualy an BIG ELI12 it's a family ride for Adutls as well as children the reason this ride done what it did was cause of power failier from the hot boxs the ride was pluged into and for information on the Safety Stop Button yes there's one for the Brakes and shut button for this ride but once you loose all power there's no stoping a fully load 'ed wheel from turning at all and yes the foot rest did what they were supose to do break free from the ride as designed at least my incendent was'nt like the SKY DIVER owned by J&J!CARNEY 4LIFE

To AL GORE First off let me tell you that if i had never lost power to the BIG ELI!@ the platform would of been down not up but i just un-load'ed 2 people and was going to load 2 more when this lost power cause of a breaker inside the box crap'ed out it was'nt cause of the ride and the foot rest did as the design called for on this ride break away when this happens but the box the Whell was in was'nt the show's we only booked a couple rides in there and all the rides are saftey inspected by the STATE OF COLUMBUS and we were back up and running on saturday so maybe you should look at it this way at least i was sober when this happen'd not drunk like the guy on the SKY DIVER operating it!CARNEY4LIFE

CARNEY4LIFE is why I don't do fair rides. I didn't understand a thing they wrote, so I am sure as heck not going to trust them with my safety.

I wont take my four kids there not jusy because of ride safety. I think they are WAY over priced anymore. It's too costly to take your kids anywhere and have a good time anymore without becoming broke. Especially when there economy is on such a low right now. We strugle to pay our bills and put food in our fridge. But we still want our kids to enjoy things in life. The Maple fest used to be one of my favorite past times. Now it's just somewhere that takes my money. Thanks god the girls are ok and my kids didn't get hurt Thursday when we went.
