Freaking awful.

From what I can tell it's an old style ride. 4 arms attached to a central hub and dangling from each arm are 4 sets of bench seats. The ride then spins the central hub and lifts the 4 arms, spinning the passengers at the ends. The bench seat has a bar that comes down and secures two passengers. I can only assume it was her and an adult. The adult being bigger, means the bar secured them but didn't come down far enough to secure her.
