Is your Mechanical Bull a “real” Mechanical Bull?
A: Yes. But many times when people ask if our Mechanical Bull is “real” they usually mean is it like the one we saw in Gilley’s on Urban Cowboy. The Mechanical Bull that John Travolta rode in Urban Cowboy was a hydraulic Mechanical Bull, as opposed to the new electric Mechanical Bulls of today. As you can imagine, Mechanical Bulls have come a long way in the past 30 years since the days of Urban Cowboy. Many safety features have been implemented to give the rider an exciting yet safe ride. The electric Mechanical Bull that we operate is manufactured by Galaxy America and has factory programmed settings that prevent the Mechanical Bull from executing dangerous moves. Since 99% of our riders are NOT professional Mechanical Bull riders, after more than 15 years of operating Mechanical Bulls for all types of crowds, we have determined that electric Mechanical Bulls are the safest and most exciting ride for most people in a special event setting.
Are Mechanical Bulls safe?
A: Yes. Mechanical Bulls have many safety features to ensure each rider is protected from injury. The inflatable mattress is used to make sure anyone falling off the Mechanical Bull lands on a soft surface. There is a stop switch on the control panel of the ride and a seat sensor to shut off the ride automatically if someone is falling off. One of the most important factors is the soft head of our Mechanical Bull - don't accept anything less!
How long does it take to setup?
A: It takes about an hour to get the Mechanical Bull into the party location, setup and test it, to be ready to ride.
Where can I set up a Mechanical Bull?
A: Just about anywhere, indoors or outdoors. We can also provide a tent for the Mechanical Bull, for an additional charge, if your event is outdoors.
How much power does it need?
A: It takes a 20 amp and a 10-amp 110v circuit. Gas generators can be provided, for an additional charge, if an electrical outlet is not available.
Q: Is a generator included with an inflatable rental?
A: No. Generators are rented separately, for an additional charge. A blower is included to pump the inflatable, but if you will not have electrical power at the setup location (e.g. at parks) you will need to rent a generator.

Can anyone ride a Mechanical Bull?
A: NO! Under no circumstance can anyone with any type of existing injury ride the Mechanical Bull.
Can we ride more than one person on the Mechanical Bull at a time?
A: No. What makes Mechanical Bulls so exciting is that they provide a radical ride for the rider who is eventually thrown off and lands on an inflatable air mattress. Landing on your friend would not make for such a fun ride.
Will I get thrown off the Mechanical Bull? If so, what do I land on?
A: Yes, you will most likely be thrown off. 99% of the riders are thrown off the Mechanical Bull since the program gets progressively harder the longer you stay on. In certain cases the Mechanical Bull operator will stop the Mechanical Bull at a certain point in the program and allow the rider to get off on their own. These cases are usually reserved for elderly guests or small children who appear to be scared. When you are thrown off you will land on an inflatable air mattress that will catch your fall.
