What is the purpose of  not allowing one single rider on by themselves at the carnival , fair , etc?

For as long as I can remember, at the state fair and other amusement parks. There would be certain guidelines and rules for certain rides.

Why is it that no Single Riders are allowed for this particular one?

    In some cases it's due to weight distribution on the ride.  In some cases it's because they want to fill all the seats and keep the lines moving and maximize profits (if it's a ticket-based system).

    Duplicate question. Before asking type your questions in the upper search bar.

    While it is primarily a safety issue. Certain rides will have an uneven mass distribution with the "single rider" especially a child or adolescent. Double riders will help each other to stay in place under the safety bars.

    So that the operator can serve more people more quickly, and thus make more money.
