WEST ALLIS (WKOW) — The Wisconsin State Fair begins Thursday.
If you go, you can be sure the rides will be safe.
Dawn Crim with the State Department of Safety and Professional Services says they spend a full two weeks inspecting the temporary setups and rides leading up to the fair.
“What I look for is, first of all the foundation, the stability of the rides, especially with Pharaoh’s Fury. You want to be sure that the platform is solid,and when we look we are making sure things are level,” she told WISN.
Multiple inspectors test each ride.
Officials say a lot of the newer rides have fail safes and use computer technology that monitors the ride as it is in play.
