About Us

We are Galaxy Multi Rides

A Family Business Creating the Best in Commercial Rides & Games

The Galaxy Multi Rides mission has always been to strive to offer the best quality product at the most competitive price. We plan to continue being the #1 provider of mechanical bulls and multi rides systems in the world for years to come!


In 1989 while providing the bull and surf ride as entertainment at a trade show, interest was piqued for the machine. Orders were placed, and manufacturing started!

The ride soon evolved. New attachments were developed and the motion base was upgraded from hydraulic to electric. Many other rides soon followed. Some specifically designed for individual clients, others for large blue-chip companies.

In 1993, automatic pre-set programs and LED clocks were added to the control console and flashing eyes to the bull body. In 1999, the Automatic Stop Switch (ASS) was added, and in 2007, the Soft Foam Safety head was invented. We now offer over 56 ride attachments that are available to use with the motion base.

Our Mission

Galaxy Multi Rides strives to offer the best quality product at the most competitive price. And we back up on our product with a 5 year manufacturing warranty*. We plan to continue being the #1 provider of mechanical bulls and multi rides systems in the world for years to come!

Our History

In 1985, Robin Whincup started a rental company hiring out bouncy castles for children and adults. As the company grew, he invested in a Gillies Bull from the USA. The bull made good money as there wasn’t many bulls in the UK in the 1980’s; the main drawback, however, was it took 6 men to take it out and two hours to set up & break down! Learn more


We continue to innovate and develop some of the best entertainment rides in the world. We have made over 60 different ride attachments, developed numerous custom promotional rides and now launched the Action Games range. We are the best at what we do, but we don’t stop there: we strive to be better every year.

Our Competition

Some of our competitors may claim to be the leaders in the manufacture of the mechanical bulls, but ‘leaders’ do not copy other companies products. Feel free to give them a call and ask them how they came up with the idea of their product and when did they first make it and you’ll learn the truth about the inventor of the mechanical multi ride.


We are a family company that has built its reputation of quality, customer service and innovation. Our multi rides are built to last! That’s why we manufacture over 90% of the product in house. We have our main factory in Port Charlotte, Florida (US), and we still continue to manufacture in Harrogate, North Yorkshire (England), where it all began.
