What might I need to consider?
When adding attractions to your event, there are several things to consider logistically:
Access - How is access to the site? The larger rides are transported on large trucks (approximately the size a supermarket lorry). Therefore, they require good clear access to the site. You should think about roadways, gates, overhead obstructions, trees and other obstacles.
Weight limits - Some rides are very heavy so you should consider any weight limits that may be in place.
Suitability of the ground - Most attractions will require level, hard-standing ground on which to be sited. If your site has a slight gradient, some attractions will be able to adapt to a certain extent. If you plan to site your rides on a field which is soft, rides may become stuck which will of course cause problems. The recovery of stuck rides and vehicles can be costly, time consuming and cause damage to both the rides/vehicles and ground.
Lead time - We have successfully organised and executed events at short notice. However, the more time we have to work on an event, the wider your choice of attractions will be and the less chance there will be of problems arising. If your event is approaching and you do not yet have your Fairground rides in place, don’t panic! It may not be too late. Contact our helpful team today and we will discuss your options.
