Remember these?

Still scanning pix from my youth when I came across this beauty! Oh, the memories! I loved playing in this contraption at the local park. Theres something highly enjoyable about climbing like a hamster in a giant wheel. Sometime around 1988 they disappeared, though. Could it have been the fact that your fingers would get pinched in between the slats every other time in went around? Or could it be that children (never me) would hold on to the outer edge as it was spinning and go completely end over end? A law suit just waiting to happen- what!? Parks just aren't what they used to be... Is that good or bad?
