Playground: 14 vintage maiming devices!
14. Super Fractionator & Skin Burner
The pinnacle of the team’s efforts came in the shape of the Super Fractionator & Skin Burner. This hugely popular and effective danger enhancer combined the old favourite of a high ladder with the risks of a fast slide directly into other operators or onto a hard surface, and had the added bonuses of the need for the operators to perform a difficult manouvre to transfer from the ladder to the slide at the highest point and the possibility of friction burns from the steel slide or even extreme heat burns during long sunny days (which were also the times that the operators were most motivated to use the device). All of this combined with the default concrete floor added up to multiple and frequent injuries. A real success story!
