An amusement ride might seem to be complex especially if you have never rented one before, but we are here to help you and here’s a few insights and tips for you.

Insight #1: Make sure you have enough space to have your amusement ride at your event.

Bumper Cars

Amusement rides need more space than a regular game or inflatable. If you have questions about the needed space, please call us at 847-690-110 so our event professionals can assist you.

If you don’t have access to industrial power then we can provide one of our gas generators. Amusement rides require varying amounts of electricity and number of circuits. The best bet is to talk directly to our event professionals about the electricity required for an amusement ride.

Insight 3: All our amusement rides require a signed waivers.

For anyone that is under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian can sign one for them.

If your guests are over the age of 18, they can sign yourself. They only need to sign once in order to ride it.

Some clients give out wristbands once their guests sign it to make it easier for the attendants to know who signed the waiver.

Unfortunately, if a guest refuses to sign the waiver, we cannot allow them to use the attraction.

Insight 4: All of our amusement rides require a flat surface.
