Carnival ride safety

Posted: Updated:
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. -

Fair rides are lots of fun, but are they safe?

Last month, a Texas woman died after falling out of an amusement park rollercoaster while it was in motion.

Gina Bullard spoke with Jack Stoorza of Reithoffer Shows about ride safety. Reithoffer Shows is the carnival company that tours the East Coast during fair season. It sets up and exhibits at the Champlain Valley Fair.

When it comes to staff, Stoorza said ride operators go through training for every ride. He also also said riders need to follow the rules to stay safe.
