Illinois Pulls Fire Ball And Freak Out Rides From Fairs
Rides like the one that failed at the Ohio State Fair won't be found at any of Illinois' remaining fairs or festivals. The Illinois Department of Labor yesterday ordered all fair operators to pull Fire Ball and Freak Out rides from their midways. Illinois State Fair spokeswoman Rebecca Clark says that order includes a Freak Out ride that was supposed to be at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. In all, 12 rides across Illinois are being closed or canceled.
