|carnival attraction at the County Fair 2016|
When I was growing up, we didn't go to the carnival very much, but the one ride that I looked forward to riding was the Ferris Wheel. I didn't care for the twisting and twirling rides or those that flipped upside down, especially at traveling carnivals. I don't quite trust the equipment that is moved multiple times in the course of the summer.

The class I sponsored planned a trip to Denver and its many attractions. On the top of the list of places to visit was Elitch Gardens, an amusement park. One ride drew a lot of interest: the occupants were twisted and turned at high speeds and dipped upside down multiple times. One of the boys thought I would never get on the thing, but I fooled him. I had a blast, but I didn't think to take off my necklace before the ride. It was all I could do to keep it from flying off.
Do you have a favorite carnival ride?
