Hiring amusement rides for your party or event is a sure-fire way excite and entertain your guests or patrons. However, whether you are looking to hire a giant slide, bungee trampolines, dodgem cars or even a Ferris wheel, there is some planning involved and some boxes you need to make sure are ticked. Here are five things to look for when you start your search for amusement rides to hire.
1. Which amusement rides are best for your demographic?
The first step is to decide which amusement rides you want to hire. To do this, you will need to carefully consider the ages and health of the guests or patrons that will be attending your party or event. Some rides are best suited for children 12 and under, while others rides are much-loved by teenagers or adults. Younger children can easily become ill if they ride fast, spinning rides. However, teenagers and younger adults generally love the fast rides that get their adrenaline pumping. The best solution for many parties and events is often hiring a combination of multiple rides targeted towards different age groups. In this case, hiring from a larger provider who stocks a wide range of rides is generally best.
2. How much available space do you have?
You will also have to consider how much space you have available when settling on which rides to hire. Some rides take up a lot more space than others.
3. Find a reputable local operator
Search for a local amusement ride hire operator in your state or region and do a little research on them online. Looking at company websites is often a good starting point to get a feel for a company, where they are based, which areas they service and which amusement rides they offer. Some company websites may also list some of the events they have previously been involved in.
4. Check the operator’s safety record
Once you have found what looks to be a reputable operator, you should give them a call to confirm some finer details around safety regulations and standards. Nothing is more important than making sure you hire your amusement rides from a company that meets all safety regulations and standards. You need to ensure the company is properly regulated and compliant with all local laws and regulations in your state, which can differ between states. Operators should be able to provide maintenance logs for the rides and demonstrate employee training records for safe assembly, operation, dismantling and removal of rides. You may request referees or testimonials from previous hirers.
5. Use one operator and book your rides
If you decide you want multiple rides, don’t try and shop around for the best prices and hire different rides from different operators. That can get messy. If it best to get all your rides from one reputable operator, which will also relieve a little bit of stress during the planning and setting up process.
