Although Galaxy is well known for the design and manufacture of the original mechanical bull multiride, it is their creativity in designing custom units that attracts clients from all over the world.

They have designed and created custom units for Coca Cola, Google, Ball Park Franks, Coors and The US Army. And that’s just a sampling of clients who have reached out for their expertise. One of their newer attractions, the “Jose Quervo Mechanical Lime” Ride has been a huge hit all over the country.

This family-owned and operated business is located in Port Charlotte, Florida, but they provide sales to over 45 countries.

Galaxy’s games are popular in almost any venue, whether it be trade shows, theme parks, water parks, bars or retail stores. The use of a Galaxy custom multiride is becoming more and more popular as a way to build an exciting brand promotion.

One of their recent rides, announced at least year’s IAAPA show, was the Xtreme Board Combo. This ride combines surfing, snowboarding and skating as part of one exciting game.

The premiere product in the company’s lineup is the mechanical rodeo bull, a ride the firm innovated in 1988. The mechanical bull has been featured in numerous movies and TV shows, and continues to enjoy an enthusiastic following. Four bulls for adult entertainment are offered, as well as one for children. The firm has 35 different attachments for the ride that range from a reindeer and shark to an alligator and Harley Davidson Hog. The company offers the only training program for mechanical bulls available. The Galaxy Multiride Mechanical Bull is one of the easiest mechanical bulls to insure in the industry and Galaxy has been instrumental in designing the safety features that has made the design so popular.

To complement the mechanical bulls and inflatable rides, the firm manufactures an array of western-themed interactive shooting games that include Ambush, Quick Draw McGraw and the OK Corral Shooting Gallery, along with the Clap O Meter Armchair Sports Star.
