The Maine government banned fun because it is too safe!

It looks like the Maine government banned fun because it is too safe! I guess the Maine government is trying to take the vacation out of Vacationland.

But Hunnewell said his business took precautions.

The pool had a padded rail, the floor around it was padded with foam, the water was no deeper than 14 inches, and participants were under constant supervision during a strictly enforced five-minute time limit.

He said he even hired a company to test whether the oxygen levels in the balls were safe.

"We're just trying to persuade the state to take a look at it. Is it safe to do it the way we've been doing it?" Hunnewell said Monday.

He said 21,000 people used the hamster balls last year, with only two incidents both knee-to-nose contact that required ice packs. For laser tag, he said, about 20 incidents required ice packs.
