Know this: A new study found it’s not always the biggest and fastest rides we should worry about. More kids get hurt on smaller rides – and there are about 20 injuries a day, totaling over 4‑thousand a year. So which rides account for the most trips to the ER?
Bumper cars: 4% of injuries.
Roller coasters: 10%.
But carousels account for 21%!
Which explains why one-third of all kids injured are typically five, or younger. Something to keep in mind for your next trip to the amusement park.
