How to Ride a Mechanical Bull

Even though mechanical bulls were originally intended for bull riders in training, they've also become more common at parties and bars ever since they were popularized by the 1980 film, Urban Cowboy. So if you want to put your bull riding skills to the test, here are some ways to hold on tight without embarrassing yourself! Mechanical bull rides are so popular that they are welcomed in amusement parks, fairgrounds, parties and clubs. For more information about mechanical bull rides, please check out here: http://bestonridesforsale.com/mechanical-bull-rides-for-sale/

1. Holding
Hold on with your dominant hand. You can either grip the handhold with you palm facing up, or with an over grip with the palm facing down (Brazilian style).; make sure you have a good grip. Sometimes you are provided with a glove for your gripping hand.


2. Body actions
    1. Focus on squeezing with your thighs. Too many people think the control is on the one hand you're holding on with. You should be using your leg muscles to "root" you to the bull.
   2. Relax your upper body. The ride operator is going to try to use your upper body weight against you when the bull bows down in front and the rear tips up. Most people get rolled off the front during this maneuver. Your best strategy is to point your heels together and try to lean back when the bull dives forward to counter the momentum and then rhythmically shift your weight the opposite way when the bull tips up in the front. Most importantly, keep your upper body loose and relaxed--if you keep it stiff, the momentum will swing you off the bull.

3. Balancing

    1. Use your free hand for balance. Think about how a tightrope walker uses their hands to maintain balance; you should be doing the same with your free hand. Although it might look like people wave it around just to look cool, it really can help you stay on the bull. Holding a hat in that hand might help, too!
   2. Shift your weight. At times, the operator will make the bull go up, down, left, right and circles. Shifting your weight will help.

  • If the bull goes up with the head up and rear down, shift your weight in your pelvic area down.
  • If the bull goes down, with rear up and head down, shift your pelvic area up and lean back just a bit.
  • If the bull goes left, try to lean a bit right. If the bull goes right, then try leaning a bit left.
  • When the mechanical bull spins in circles, try to lean in the opposite way, so if it spins left, then lean a bit right. If the bull goes right, then lean left.
Except for mechanical bull rides, there are still many amusement rides for you in here:  http://bestonridesforsale.com/

Safety tips for riders of all ages


Amusement parks and traveling carnivals offer an exciting escape from everyday life, but thrill rides must be used with care. The rules below can help you learn how to choose and use amusement rides safely.

Read and obey all posted rules and restrictions.

  • Follow all posted height/age restrictions, rules, and verbal instructions issued by ride operators. Riders who are smaller or larger than the posted limits may not adequately protected by the ride's restraints and safety system.
  • If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, check with your doctor before riding thrill rides.

Make sure the ride is appropriate for the rider.

  • When choosing rides for children, older riders, or people with disabilities, be conservative and realistic.  Most thrill rides are, by their very nature, physically demanding and emotionally intense.
  • Make sure the restraints fit well and the rider is secured.  Small, thin riders and obese riders are at higher risk of ejection in rides that rely on lap restraints.
  • If a child or developmentally-disabled rider seems frightened for any reason, alert the operator before the ride starts so you can get off safely and find another ride.
  • Ride with your child until you're absolutely sure he or she can understand and follow all of the safety rules.  Slower rides aren't required to have child restraints, so manufacturers and owner/operators often rely on children to keep themselves safely contained inside the vehicle.
  • If you question whether a child or disabled person in your charge should be on a particular ride, err on the side of caution. If someone lacks the capacity to fully understand what they may be subjected to and the results of their actions, they shouldn't be placed on a ride which can induce great fear and panic.

Securely latch all restraints and use grab bars.

  • Double-check seat belts, shoulder harnesses, and lap bars.  Hold onto handrails, when provided.  They're part of the safety equipment, designed to keep you safely in place.

Stay in the "locked and loaded" position for the entire ride cycle.

  • The attendant will make sure you're properly positioned and secured before the ride is launched.  It's your job to maintain that safe position until the ride comes to a final stop at the unloading point.
  • Keep all body parts and belongings inside the ride at all times. This includes hands, arms, fingers, legs, feet, toes, long hair, etc. Items dropped or thrown from a ride can cause serious accidents.
  • Never stand up on a roller coaster to get a "bigger thrill", or rock a vehicle that's not designed to be controlled by riders.
  • If a ride stops temporarily, due to breakdown or other reason, stay seated and wait for the ride to start up again or for an operator to give your further instructions. Make sure kids know this before they're allowed to ride alone.
  • Ride eyes-front to protect your neck. If you've got your head turned when a sudden change in acceleration occurs, injuries can result.

Take frequent breaks if you're riding high-g rides.

  • Repeated rides on high-g rides can lead to loss of consciousness. Loss of consciousness results in loss of postural control, which can lead to serious injury on a high-acceleration ride. Patrons are warned to rest 20-30 minutes between rides.

Stop riding before you get excessively tired.

  • Tired riders are more likely to make a mistake or skip a safety procedure, and might not have the strength needed to hold their head up or brace themselves around curves.

Drink plenty of fluids throughout your stay at an amusement park or carnival.

  • Dehydration can increase your risk of injury or illness on some rides.

Never ride while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Don't board a ride if it looks poorly-maintained or the operator is inattentive.

  • While most parks and carnivals pay close attention to ride safety, there are unfortunate exceptions - just as in any industry.  Follow your instincts. If something about a ride seems out of whack, don't ride it.

Simple as  the ferris ring car seems, the ride can give riders extraordinary air time, turn riders in several circles. 

Extraordinary Thrill Top Scan Rides

Space Roller is a Mondial manufactured Top Scan ride. It’s one of the handful of major, modern European funfair rides that have started to pop up in the US and Canada. Typically these large rides weigh too much to travel on US highways (Top Spin is a prime example) so they are almost exclusively seen in Europe.

The main component of the Space Roller is a large boom with a six armed satellite on one end, and a counterweight on the other. Riders sit in rows of five and are secured by harness and seatbelt. These rows of seats have the ability to freely flip throughout the ride. Space Roller is truly the ride at any fair, but that drawing power comes at a price as this ride racks onto four trailers!

Space Roller is simply an alternative theme for Top Scan, but a popular one as at least two others exist. Other names for this ride include Samurai, Skater, The Beast, and Poseidon’s Rache (Poseidon’s Revenge.)
First, queuing riders must to wait in a somewhat disorganized queue line; it’s basically just a group of people herded onto the left side of the platform. In the past, a ride attendant would open the gate and the first 30 people to scamper, push or cajole their way through the gates got to ride. On more recent rides, the ride ops let 30 people onto the platform before each cycle. Now you just need to fight for a certain seat, rather than fight for a seat at all! The seats aren’t braked so when jumping up into the seat, it’s not uncommon for them to roll forward a bit. After seated people will usually try to pull their harness down and can’t because, unknown to them, the harnesses come down automatically. The satellite also spins a bit if there is too much weight on one end.This, of course, freaks some people out because they think the ride is starting with them not secured!

When the cycle begins, the support arm, which is on a hinge of some sort, moves up a few feet to raise the satellite off the platform. The satellite then starts to revolve for a bit before the boom begins to rotate.

Space RollerLike I mentioned, the seats can flip at random which makes this ride extremely unpredictable. It’s pretty hard to even explain what it’s like since so many sensations are felt. In certain instances, one can feel negative Gs and lateral Gs, all while upsidedown! For detailed ride experience, check: http://bestonridesforsale.com/top-scan-ride-for-sale/

One of my most vivid memories of this ride was when the row of seats that I was in stayed upsidedown while the boom rotated from the uppermost point, down to the platform. What I saw was an upsidedown loading platform rushing towards me until the seats flipped upright again. After the ride, it’s not uncommon to stray to the right while walking due to the heavy laterals during the entire ride (at least if you were sitting on an end seat.)

A few different rides in Beston have components of the Space Roller but provide very different rides. In Europe there is a ride called ‘Inferno ‘ which is also made by Mondial. Inferno has everything the Space Roller has except for the six sided satellite that riders sit in; instead there are two large gondolas that face each other. The two gondolas are able to perform horizontal flips at random, only much more slowly which allows for some massive hang time. Another ride called “High Energy,’ which is made by Zierer, is basically an Evolution type ride only with the Space Roller’s 6 sided satellite attached to one end.
