My Dad and went on a carousel a few years back, (We're neither of us petite), it wasn't a nice sedate ride though, the horses were static and low and slightly slanted and the ride went *fast*.
As we spun round Dad started to slide off, the centrifugal force and his non petiteness combining to make it a tense ride - for him
For me, watching the alarm on his face as he tilted more and more had me in stitches. So much so that by the end I was almost falling off myself, laughing so hard I could barely breath, couldn't see for tears and was close to wetting myself!
He declined a second ride :)
