You might not realize it but mechanical bull riding has made a HUGE comeback in the past few years. It’s not just that drunken cowboy ride for Friday night entertainment and it’s certainly not just for a bar. If you own a Family Entertainment or Indoor Amusement center, you might be amazed at what a mechanical bull can do for your business. The new bulls aren’t just for the experienced rider…they’re made challenging enough for adults, but safe enough for children and the variety of games you can get out of one ride is just amazing!
So, how do you decide what type of mechanical rodeo bull to get for your Entertainment Center? It really depends on what type of center you have. If you have a children’s FEC, you might want to consider an Angus McRodeo. This is definitely a ride for younger children, but it’s a great addition if you want something different. It’s safe, and as fun for adults to watch as it is for kids to ride. Take a look at the little one in our post. You can’t ask for much more of a smile than that.
Now, if you have a full Family Entertainment Center, you need something that works for all ages. The Galaxy Multiride Bulls are equipped with a Soft Head for safety, an automatic kill switch and a huge inflatable landing pad. We, at Galaxy understand entertainment, but we always put safety first in all of our rides.
The Soft Head Bull is unique as the heads can be changed out to keep things fresh and different every week. You can choose from three different heads: Crazy Cow, Macho, and the regular standard head. The heads are made by utilizing a material called Solaflex. This is soft foam that is designed to eliminate any injuries. All three heads have LED eyes that flash and they are bolted to the bull for easy change out. They look amazingly real.
The Deluxe Mechanical Bull Riding Machine has an inflatable western corral theme, with a blower, using the Macho Bull design. The bull is activated when the rope is grabbed by the rider. When the rider falls off the bull, and the rope is released, the bull stops automatically. The bull has bucking and spinning motion with real looking ferocious flashing eyes. The unit comes with an authentic looking console, themed to look like a wooden crate. There are two LED clocks, a Joystick, six automatic pre-set programs, and a LED display.
For total family fun at a FEC you should consider the Premium Mechanical Bull. This comes with a western themed inflatable. It’s bright with the green grass for the bottom and a yellow fence. There is even a LED scoreboard that shows the rider’s time and the best time of the day. The console is themed like a wooden crate. The bull comes with an Auto Stop Sensor for safety. The bull’s head is soft foam for safety. There are two styles to choose from, a regular style or a macho style. Your new mechanical bull will bring in crowds of people just watch others try and best the bull!
The Entertainment business, as we all know, is extremely competitive. The only way to stay at the top is to change your equipment frequently. That’s where the mechanical bull comes in. If you purchase a mechanical bull multi ride unit, you’ll be able to offer all types of rides, with simple attachment changes. How about a surf machine, mechanical football ride, or even a mechanical reindeer.
If you want your business to grow and keep your customers coming back again and again…think Mechanical Bull!
