2 March 2023

When it comes to rides, you really need to hire funfair dodgems. Nothing comes close for fun, and it is equally suitable for younger kids, as well as grandparents. Over time we have been asked many questions regarding dodgem hire, so we are listing a few of the most common here.

One of the most asked questions is can I hire dodgems near me.

We cover the full UK, so rides are available for events wherever you are.

Are dodgems suitable for a wedding?

Yes, they are a ride that most everyone loves, from kids through to the elderly, they are a definite hit at weddings.

How big are they?

They range in size from smaller version of the traditional English type track at around 50ft by 50ft. To the larger continental tracks at 75ft by 55ft.

How much do they cost?

It is impossible to give a definite answer because it depends on which type of track, where in the UK, when the event is etc. Roughly they will be between £1600 and £2500

How long do they take to set up?

The older build up tracks can be upto around 8 hours. Some of the more modern tracks have been built for high speed set up and can be as little as 3 hours.

Do they come with music.

Yes all of our tracks have music, lights and a top cover for use in the rain.

Can they be set up indoors.

If the access doors are large enough then the continental tracks can be driven into position and set up. If not it may still be possible to use the traditional type track as they are supplied in small sections, however it will increase the set up costs.

Are they safe.

Very, all our rides undergo an annual inspection from an independent engineer, a bit like a cars MOT. This results in it being issued with an ADIPS certificate certifying that it meets relevant safety standards both electrically and mechanically. This can be checked on ADIPS website. Additionally each ride must maintain a daily inspection record for each day it is in operation.

Do they have to have loud music blaring out.

No, of course not. On a traditional fairground, every ride is competing with every other ride. So they are all trying to outdo each other. When you hire for a private event, you can have the music as loud or as quiet as you wish. Or even turned off.

These are the most common questions. If you have any additional enquiries, leave a comment and we will add them to the list.
