It would have been better for them if they had the little girl properly seated in one of the gondolas.




Ummm, actually I'm not so sure that she would be tall enough for that ride. Casino/Trabant has a minimum 42" rider height (unaccompanied). Best pictures would have been on the stairs to the ride or in front of the ride, on the ground...well out of the way...

My guess it is photoshop too. She is the granddaughter of the show owners, the Turners.

Hay hears a thought those who know the owners or the people ask them photoshop pic or what did you do.And the two ladies are not always in the exact spot.

I can't see how they could get various pictures of the two girls that are at the same position on the ride. However, I too agree that photos like these are not a smart idea especially with those concerned about ride safety. I'm sure that they never meant to put the little girl in harms way and I don't think they would have her there on the platform while the ride is moving. It would have been better for them if they had the little girl properly seated in one of the gondolas.

Yeah the ride is stopped....How bad is it if the owner wanted a "action shot" next to a ride....I'm sure they told the riders what was up...." Hey, I'm gonna take a pic of my grandaughter next to the ride and I'll give you a extra long ride for waiting while we do it....thanks" I'm sure the riders won't beef. the girl riders are probley saying "how cute".... They got other pics where the kid is in a tub of a ride....None of us are Olan Mills so I could'nt tell you what shot would be best....There is only ONE Girl....where do you come up with 2?

I think in the Bottom pic Punky is looking for some "Shake" off the ride so she can get some candy.....lol

Somebody has lost it putting a kid in that situation. The ride is stopped, look at the blondes hair and where the guy is with the hat. They are both in all the pictures, same position of the ride and her hair hasn't shown motion. Still a stupid idea to post pictures like that. CPS could easily see them and then guess what?????
