Not Much Has Changed With Fair Ride Inspections

Jul 24, 2018


State officials are working to reassure visitors the 2018 Ohio State Fair will be safe after a catastrophic ride failure last year killed one person and injured seven others. 

Yet little has changed since last year. Amusements of America is still the ride vendor and Ohio still employs eight inspectors for 37 hundred rides statewide. The Ohio Department of Agriculture says inspectors will do more this year, including daily spot-checks and supplemental inspections.
