There are many elements that make up a personal injury case and I would strongly suggest that you seek consultation from a personal injury attorney in your area. If there was a duty owned to you and one of the employees was negligent in the operation of the ride causing that duty to be breached then it may be possible depending on the facts.  Good luck.
