Indeed, it appears carnivals are continuing to become less and less fun. Especially for those who enjoyed the old timers, such as one of my own all-time favorite carnival rides, the Zipper. As it appears, one of the largest mobile carnival companies in America, North American Midway Entertainment, has sold their Zipper ride. That is correct, North American Midway Entertainment has gotten rid of the Zipper!

They can't afford the liability any more. After four deaths, two near deaths, and uncounted back and neck injuries; it seems the Zipper became a not so amusing park experience for the insurance company's.

I never got hurt on the Zipper. Even riding solo. Also, weren't whatever deaths that occured on the Zipper due to human error? Especially for instance, operators not locking the gondola door (especially using the R-key), and such?
