Yo-Yo amusement park rides recalled

US Recall News     updated  2008/10/08 04:16

An amusement park ride manufacturer Wednesday recalled about 85 Yo-Yo rides to repair defects involved in two accidents.

The Yo-Yo ride made by Chance Rides Manufacturing Inc., based in Wichita, Kan., has a series of metal arms extending from a rotating hub. A chair is attached to the end of each arm by a chain, and the arms and chairs swing outward as the hub rotates and picks up speed.

In May, a Yo-Yo ride collapsed at the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee in Angels Camp, Calif., injuring 23 people. In March 2006, a Yo-Yo ride at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, also malfunctioned. Nine people were injured, sustaining bruises and back and neck strains, according to reports from the Texas Department of Insurance.

Chance Rides Manufacturing will give ride owners and state regulators kits to help inspect and repair defective rides, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday. The company will also offer new maintenance guidelines for the rides.

Jeff Roth, vice president of administration for Chance Rides Manufacturing, said the kits will help owners and operators identify problems.

"We are pleased to bring that to market to allow the owners of Yo-Yo rides to keep them safe for the future," he said.
