A “funhouse” indeed.

A three-year-old was filmed having fun on the spinning barrel portion of the funhouse at a local county fair. So much fun, she wouldn’t let go.

Her mother captured her incredible “death grip,” when the girl managed to stay on the hamster wheel-esque contraption even after the wheel made a 180-degree turn, leaving her upside down.

The little one does eventually take a tumble off the ride, but quickly recovers, exclaiming, “I like that mommy!”

All’s well that ends well at the county fair.
