Here is a ride at the Oregon State Fair a couple years ago. I don't know what it is called but my stomach complains looking at the photo.

Thanks everyone. No, I didn't go on it. I like what's in my stomach to remain there. I'm not much on riding carnival rides but I do like to watch them and photograph them.

My wife and I used to go to Lagoon, a theme and amusement park about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City. One time while we were there, we split up for about 30 minutes so we could see parts of the park that interested us, individually, but didn't interest both of us. I spent most of that time standing in front of a modern roller coaster constructed of steel tubing and pipes. It had at least three loops, a full circle twist section and some very steep rises and falls. After watching it and getting to "know" the ride, I just about had my courage up enough to try it. However, about that time, my wife came along and "rescued" me. She was hungry and wanted to go get something to eat. I never experienced that ride!

Very nice! You get a good idea of the path the ride takes.

It's enough to keep me off of it!
