I would really like to know who the manufacturer of these two rides was. From what I read about the other incident, that ride was basically brand new.

Yeah. I attempted to research this but the information is not easy to find. There's very little info that I've found online about these parks...

And I can't read Hindi.

Both rides look like they were built by two different manufacturers.

The pendulum in Uzbekistan had a really tiny arm on a huge Frisbee disk. This one looks like it was built a little stronger than the previous one but looking at the seats and harness system it looks like another knockoff. Both rides were probably built in-house or by a local manufacturer if they're not buying from some Chinese knockoff company.

I can say that given the countries lack of... well anything regarding safety standards and working conditions, I would never trust ANYTHING they build there. (Google Tata trucks if you want a laugh) If you want more evidence, go watch any of the hundreds of videos on the web of them breaking ships. They literally push them up onto the beach and then 1000's of workers swarm the ships with torches and little else just hauling chunks of metal away.

When I was in the Gulf many if not most of the workers were from India and I commonly heard that they were safer and better paid in Bahrain, Kuwait, and UAE then they were in India. In fact the man who was my ship chandler in Kuwait was a trained engineer with a masters degree. He was better paid in Kuwiat working for GAC (Gulf Agency Company a ship handling comany) then he would ever have been back home. The man spoke flawless English, Hindi, Arabic, and Chinese. He told me that back home when he was designing buildings his designs were regularly over ruled and modified because the owners thought the limited things he did fore safety were unnecessary. The young man who supervised my flat's building was paid next to nothing and was excited for the opportunity.

As an emerging economy India has a LONG way to go in terms of workers rights, government regulation, fire code, and the like.

Sorry for the tirade, but the way people live over there makes me angry. It is almost like humans are seen as expendable commidities that can easily be swapped out. Like something from Dune book.
