A mother at the Armada Fair on Saturday said pop-up amusement parks are off-limits to her kids after witnessing a drive chain break off of a swing ride. 

 

A representative from Big Rock Amusements, the company that owns the ride, confirmed that the chain did come off, but does not represent a big safety issue.

He said it is the equivalent of a chain coming off of a bicycle. 

No one was hurt, and after the chain was quickly repaired, the ride was in operation for the rest of the evening.
