But Bonner says visitors can do their part to prevent problems with the attractions.

“They should feel secure. That responsibility is a three-legged stool. It's our inspectors, of course the ride operators, and the responsibility of the citizens of Oklahoma getting on the rides,” said Bonner.

Safety inspectors will be on hand until the fair is over to make sure everything is running smoothly.
