It appears that new amusement ride regulations could soon affect small hometown owned and operated fairs/ carnivals. Lane county amusement association may not be able to continue to operate carnival rides at there hometown carnival due to new regulations. They currently own and operate a Paratrooper, Gravitron, Super Slide, kiddie swing, A/H kiddie auto, Mangels kiddie whip, and Tubs-of-Fun.

Lane amusement association is a local hometown owned and operated carnival that has an annual fair in there town, but with the increase in insurance policies; the inspection and certification cost; and additional repairs they may encounter it makes it hard for them to continue to operate because that local hometown carnival just doesn’t generate that type of revenue. There also is the Witchita County Amusement Association which owns and operates there own small hometown carnival which could possibly affect that operation.

It's sad, but if they can't pay for their insurance and maintain their equipment it's time to sell it off.
