Reaching For The Brass Ring

In the early days of amusement park carousels, kids riding a circling wooden horse up & down, were encouraged to lean WAAAAYYYY out to grab a brass ring hanging out of a wall dispenser. Redeemed for a ticket, the next ride was FREE. It was a prize if you took and won the risk. Dangerous but VERY popular. See also Old-Timey.
