Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman
After surviving a bus accident when he was little Blake has always been cautious, especially about rides at amusement parks. His younger brother Quinn, however, is reckless in every way. While the brothers and their two friends are at a park Blake wins one of the carnival games and is given a ticket to a secret amusement park by a beautiful girl named Cassandra. Blake has no intention of going but later that night Quinn falls ill and Blake sees spinning carnival lights in his eyes and knows where he has gone. Blake has no choice but to follow along to try to save Quinn. But this park is like no other. If Blake doesn't get through seven rides before dawn he can never leave the park. And although the rides look like others you've seen, once aboard they change into your worst nightmare. Just surviving the night is going to take all the strength Blake has.
