What is it with carnivals excluding the Zipper from fairs, festivals, and such?

I go to carnivals a lot, and one of my all time favorite carnival rides is the Zipper. Beginning last year (2012), not one single carnival, festival, or county fair I went to had the Zipper. In fact, many of them had boring and very non-thrilling rides. When I was younger, even as recently as the mid 2000s, practically every single county fair and festival had the Zipper as one of the carnival rides. And now it is seeming that none of them are having the Zipper as one of the carnival rides.

The yearly carnival that our city has (a founders day kind of thing) has the Zipper as one of its rides. A blast from the past!
One year they even had the Hammer too. People always get a bit sick on that one.

I even remember, when I was a little kid, carnivals I went to had really major thrillers, such as the Tempest, the Paratrooper, the Rock-o-Plane, the Hully Gully, and not to mention the Kamikaze. Practically all of them of course also had the Zipper.
