So this weekend my friend Maddie and I happened upon a Carnival. For some unknown reason there was a ferris wheel and other rides set up in the mall parking lot. Naturally we decided to go, and what an adventure it turned out to be… haha So when we first get there two things become apparent to us. The first is that this carnival is like the poor man’s carnival. Some of the rides looked a little unsafe and everything looked old beyond belief. Also it was way overpriced… (makes no sense), but it’s not everyday a Carnival shows up in the local mall parking lot so we decided to splurge a little.   We wanted to go on this swing ride, but on closer inspection decided that it might break any second so decided on some weird spinning ride instead. It didn’t look like an intense ride at all. But while we were waiting in line they had to stop the ride and a girl walked over to the side and threw up. This probably should have tipped us off.  So we get in our little cart (after the guy opens the gate thing for us using a screw driver), and the ride begins. It was SO fast, or maybe it was just because it was spinning in really small circles. I don’t know either way it’s one of the rides where you try to lift up your arms and legs and you just can’t because of the force pushing against you. The ride slows and we thought it was over. Apparently not, because a second later it started spinning at that same speed only backwards. At first it felt good, because the wind was no longer in my face, but once it got up to full speed I felt like all my organs were being pushed back into my spine. I don’t know if that thing passed all it’s safety tests. We got off and we were both just laughing and having fun while we walked around, and suddenly we both felt AWFUL. I am like a roller coaster enthusiast. I’ve never gotten sick on any ride I’ve ever gone on. This was a first. We decided to leave  and on the way home we stopped at the gas station to buy some Sprite (because it settles stomachs). While she fills the tank I go in to buy the Sprite. I was fine until I look over at the guy standing next to me in line, and he’s holding this HUGE thing of Nachos with the goopy gross cheese that I hate.  At this point  I ran over and threw up in the garbage can of the gas station…. twice. I think the attendant might have thought I was drunk… After that I felt fine. All in all it was an awesome night.

    Oh gosh. I saw one of these and tried to convince my mother to take me to one of these we saw in my city (in front of a casino…my city is really small, we don’t have a mall, but we have a big casino). She wouldn’t do it. :(
