There is plenty of planning that goes into organising a party, major event or school fete.
One key consideration is setting up what will undoubtedly be one of your major drawcards – amusement rides. The size and structure of many amusement rides means they cannot simply be dropped in spot off the back of a truck. There is often quite a bit of set-up work that needs to be done, followed by essential safety checks to ensure your guests are completely safe when they enjoy the rides.
Here is what to expect if you are hiring amusement rides.
Set up time for amusement rides
The set up time for amusement rides will depend on what rides you choose and how many rides you are hiring for your party, event or school fete. Many event organisers will hire multiple amusement rides from the same company, which will take more time to set up. However, if you are only hiring a single amusement ride it may only take a few hours to set up – depending on what type of ride it is. The ease of access to the site where you plan to set up the amusement rides can also play a factor in determining how long the rides will take to set up. Sites that are harder to access will clearly take more time to set up amusement rides on.
Generally, it is always best to allow a day before your event for the set-up of amusement rides. This means ensuring your venue is booked and accessible for an extra day, in addition to your planned event day or days. However, you can confirm these timeframes with your amusement ride hire company after you determine which rides you are going to hire. It is also best to set up amusement rides on your site before anything else.
Setting up other things for your event first could make access more difficult to get your amusement rides in place. You also need to ensure that any other stalls or structures are set up a safe distance away from amusement rides. Each ride requires a certain amount space for its safe operation and most rides need to be surrounded with safety fencing.
