I am not surprised. Fairs and carnivals are notorious for shotty workmanship.

Did this carnival have a dodgem ride? The ozone from the power grid on that should cover up the odor of any other electrical arcing quite nicely..... [Linked Image]

The duplex receptacle hanging from the top box also doesn't have a weather-proof cover or a GFCI....

Mommy, why is the wonder-wheel ride always zapping me when I touch it??
