When breaking into the carnival or amusement ride market, there are a few rides that have a bit more popularity than others. These rides tend to go over very well with people using them, need minimal repairs, and be easy to customize. One of the most common in this category is any in a range of small carousels.
These carousels are usually suited for children 10 years old and younger. They may have as few as five or more than ten seats. They can come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, themes, and styles. They are also usually something that can be transported in a standard trailer rather than requiring extra space. This makes them easy to work into any company and simple to transport.
Children love playing on these small carousels. They will often go on these rides time and time again. If you go by a ticket system for your rides, this can mean a large amount of revenue. Even if you are willing to offer unlimited rides at a party, you will likely get many more bookings from parents who know what their children want.
Because these rides are small, they generally require very few replacement parts. This can be a boon when trying to figure out the true cost of running one of these rides. Carousels very rarely break down, and when they do, the replacements parts are usually easy to find and replace yourself.
If you are thinking of breaking into the amusement, carnival, or backyard ride business, small carousels are going to be one of the best rides that you can buy. From money to ease of repair, it is hard to beat the value that they provide. In addition, they bring a smile to the eyes of parents and children alike.
