There are not any amusement parks close to where I live but there are a few carnivals and fairs with rides that come through each year. My son is just getting to the age when he is big enough to ride some of the rides but I am just not sure that they are safe. How do I know that the ride is safe for a child as small as him? Furthermore, how do I make sure that the ride is safe generally? You hear about carnival accidents and they sound just horrible.
