Continental Dodgem Cars
Funfair Rides, Fun For All Ages, Children And Adults.

Looking back on our long term records, this is by far our most booked fairground ride. Smaller children can be accompanied by adults, so its suitable for kids. Teenagers love it, even the older generation find it a fun experience.

Although it has to be said the aim of the ride is to 'dodge' the other cars, not crash headlong into each other, hence dodgem, (we know, we know, in the North East they call them bumper cars, but they are a hardy breed 'up North).

Together with the Carousel, Ferris Wheel hire and Helter Skelter it is one of the iconic fairground rides.

We can help advise you on the type and size of track to best suit your venue and requirements. And offer guidence on what other funfair attractions work best with the ride to create a fabulous event for you.

This takes into account the ages and requirements of your guests. A well presented ride  has music and lighting systems. Helping to  create a fabulous centrepiece. Easily the most popular attraction you can have.

If you want a radioactive one then you are gonna have to try harder to find Vlad!

Hiring A Ride, What Do You Need To Know?

How much to hire a dodgems set near me and dodgems hire price, are regular questions we receive, unfortunately there is no simple answer to fairground ride hire prices, as it depends on where, when and what type. The where and the when are easy to answer, the other questions might need an explanation.

There are basically 2 type of rides available, the traditional type which is supplied totally dismantled and erected piece by piece., he advantage of this being that they can be carried through small gates, over fences, even upstairs, the big disadvantage is the 6-8 hours set up time.

Commonly referred to as a continental track or modern dodgem, the alternative is a set up time of around 3 hours. These are folded up onto a centre trailer for transport tending to be more highly decorated than the traditional model, contain more elaborate lighting systems and higher powered music.

The only real drawback with a modern track is that they have to be driven into position, so it limits the venues they can be used in.

You also need to take into account the track sizes and quantity of cars required to ensure whichever you choose will fit in your intended venue.

You need to take care when hiring rides like this, the internet is great for finding something you need,but there are plenty of cowboys operators out there, check out our short article on finding the best ride for your money.

Like most things in life, if you are offered a super cheap  funfair ride, beware, some companies will provide a ride, with only 6 or 7 cars, with no lights or music, and sometimes without the top cover for rain, useless if the weather turns.

Hire funfair bumper cars from us and you will receive details of what you will actually receive. And we definitely don't have anyone called Vladimir working here.

This ride works well with other offerings from our stable of entertainment including rides, games and fairground attractions;

You can have us propose a complete package for your needs when a range of fairground attractions are required, be it a company fun day, corporate event, a birthday party or you simply want to hire dodgems for a wedding.
