I know it's still fresh and I don't mean to be insensitive but I'm gonna go with that stupid high water slide in Kansas where the kid recently got decapitated. 170 ft water slide at 70 MPh with velcro seat belts and handle bars to hold onto. no thank u

Yes, watersides has its own category of dangerous/scary. Like the one at Action Park with a loop at the end, it can break you neck. Lots of deaths.

Whatever the ride is that comes on after the 'dandelion' in that first video is the single most dangerous and scary looking thing I have ever seen. At some point you become the literal end of a giant 100 ft whip. I'm not even sure I understand the mechanics/physics of what is happening.

Mind blowing...it simply cannot be real.

any ride that is a part of a traveling amusement park. Recently in my neck of the woods, three kids fell from the top of a ferris wheel.

It would be safer to rent fighter jets to park visitors then ride this thing...again...these have to be special effects exercises and cannot be real.

I saw a turd in the lazy river at Carowinds the last time I went. That was pretty scary.

It's not it's CGI added to existing rides to make them look more extreme.

Any of the fair type rides that get taken apart and re-assembled every 2 weeks. By guys making minimum wage.

I've heard the argument they are actually safer because they are taken down and put back up consistently. where as other permanent attractions are not necessarily maintained well.

That's another way of looking at it.... Never considered that. But they still seem rickety to me.
