a ride called "The Zipper." It's something like an oblong Ferris Wheel. The cars
swing and flip (you can see one in action here).
It started out great," Frank recalls. "Music was playing, the car was rocking and there was this incredible view as we rose higher and higher."
"Then the car leaned backwards. Suddenly, this fire hose of vomit sprayed down from the car above. There was a safety grid but it let everything through. And it kept coming! We tried to move out of the way but there was nowhere to go."
"So it's all over us and we're going 'Stop the ride! Stop the ride!'".
It didn't stop.
"Finally the damn thing stopped and we got out. We were soaked! My friend punched the operator. Meanwhile I'm running the fair, stripping off my shirt and pants and shoes and looking for a place to wash them. It sucked!"
"Ever have a moment go from perfect to pure hell in seconds?"
