Have You Seen This? Do not ride this ride
I love amusement parks, but I'm not sure this ride is something I want to try any time soon. - photo by John Clyde

BAD IDEA TOWN I love amusement parks. I'm not sure what that says about me as a person, but I don't care. If I could live at Six Flags, Magic Mountain I would. I love trying out new rides and getting a thrill, but I think I might pass on this one in Myanmar.

This park in the city of Yangon is home to a ride called Tagada. What is Tagada you ask? I don't really know. All I know is it's a massive lawsuit waiting to happen and is basically the human equivalent of being in the spin cycle of an old washing machine that is off balance.

As I look at the people on this ride I hear laughing and see smiles, but what you can't see or hear is the inner turmoil and mountains of regret building inside them. These people are actually miserable and plan on throwing up as soon as they're out of sight.

Maybe I would try it because I'm not one to just not give something a chance, but if I knock heads with someone else and get a huge open wound I guess I have no one to blame but myself. Well, and the maniac who designed this ride. So, just the two of us, I can't blame anyone else.
