How to choose bumper cars

How to choose bumper cars


The bumper car is seen as a staple of any funfair or amusement park. After all, how often do you get to deliberately drive your vehicle into someone else’s? There are those that state ‘no bumping’, which defines the point, and the name, of this fun activity. Fortunately, these are less common than those that actually want you to enjoy the experience.

Today’s modern bumper cars are much safer and have a rubber tube around them, this prevents damage, defuses some of the force of impact, and generally makes the bumper cars more amusing.
But, that doesn’t mean that all bumper cars are created equal, which is why you need to consider carefully before you purchase your fleet of bumper cars.

The Manufacturer

If you look at Eurogames you’ll find they have been designing, manufacturing, and distributing bumper cars and other amusement rides, for in excess of 50 years. This is important as only the manufacturer of these vehicles really understands the intricacies of their operation.
By choosing a company that manufactures and supplies the bumper cars you’re making it much easier to have any issues dealt with. Especially when the business has been going for many years and has a reputation to protect.
Don’t forget to check the reputation of your preferred manufacturer/supplier, they should have a media presence and plenty of positive feedback.

The Design

There are still plenty of examples of traditional bumper cars on the market and in funfairs. However, the modern bumper car is circular and has an air tube all the way around it. This creates great shock absorption while still allowing you to appreciate the fun of bumping someone.
Circular bumper cars are easy to control via the joysticks on each side and in the HYPER version they can spin when hit by lasers from other bumper cars, increasing the fun of driving. It should be noted that this ‘shoot & spin’ function isn’t available on all vehicles.
The important thing to note is that the design doesn’t have to be the traditional car with metal or rubber bumper, there are plenty of great designs on Eurogames which will make your amusement rife unique and fun.

Seating

The best bumper cars have two seats, this allows smaller children to enjoy the action while adults can sit in with them to ensure they are safe. Harnesses are also essential, no bumper car should be considered if it doesn’t have a harness fitted.

Power

The more powerful is the bumper car the more fun it will be, with adjustable speed of course. Eurogames bumper cars are powered by two 12v batteries producing 305 watts of power. They can last for between 4-8 hours without needing to be recharged.
In short, if you have a flat surface and two or more of these then you’re in for a good time!

Style

As well as choosing between circular bumper cars and the more conventional shaped bumper cars you will also need to consider the style of the cars. In most cases, they can be custom painted to suit your needs and the amusement ride you’re creating.
But, it is important to make sure this is possible if it’s not then you’ll need to check what styles the company provides and whether they will suit your needs.

Ease Of Maintenance

Bumper cars traditionally have a hard life, the constant jolting can dislodge parts and place additional stress on the engine. It’s important to know that the motors are high quality and they are direct-drive, no belts, no gear, maintenance free, they are easy to access, allowing you to maintain it regularly and repair when necessary.
It’s also important to consider the main control box. This is the electrical part, some manufacturer’s design it so that it controls everything, others design them individually, potentially allowing the car to run even if some of the functions are not working. That’s the better option if you’re trying to earn an income from the vehicles.

After-Sales

Offering support through purchasing, promotion, and installation of your venue is a great starting point. But, you also need a firm that will give you the support you need after you’ve purchased the cars.
It’s important to confirm what is included in after-sales and what will cost you extra, it can make a big difference to your bottom line. Our spare part service is always at disposal, with more than the 80% of spare parts on stock and ready to be delivered. A professional and Technical assistance by phone or emails can help you in case of any issue may occur.

 

Construction

The heart of a bumper car is the engine, the chassis and the body strength. You also need to be aware of the materials used to construct the car; These are likely to be bashed and can be damaged, potentially putting a car out of action.
It’s important to inspect a car before you commit to purchasing any, this will help to reassure you the construction is high-quality and it’s possible to repair it if necessary.

 

Your Gut

Finally, you should listen to your gut. That’s the instinct you get when you first see the bumper car and when you talk to the salespeople/suppliers/manufacturer.
You should feel comfortable with them as you’ll be hoping to build a relationship with them for the future. If you don’t feel it’s easy to talk to them then you should be looking at a different firm, you have enough going on when setting up this type of venture without giving yourself extra stress over dealing with the supplier.
In short, their customer service approach should be excellent.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking to create a bumper car amusement venue you need to choose a firm that supplies bumper cars for this type of venue. The ones supplied by Eurogames are designed for heavy use, they have plenty of power and a variety of functions that will help to ensure they keep running and earning you an income even if parts stop working.
That’s important when you’re looking to earn a living, you can’t afford to have cars sat idle for any reason.
