Are Mechanical Bulls Safe for Children?
July 2, 2019
Over the years mechanical bulls have gotten a reputation for being potentially dangerous, but is that really the case? The truth is that modern mechanical bulls are a safe and fun way to provide entertainment at any type of party or get together. Because mechanical bulls were originally intended as a training tool for rodeo bull riders, they didn’t have nearly the safety features they do now. But even with more modern safety measures, are they really safe enough for children?
Let’s take a closer look at mechanical bulls and their safety for riders young and old.
Mechanical bulls are made to dismount their riders, that is the point after all, isn’t it? The goal is to stay on the bull for as long as possible while realizing that you will inevitably be thrown off as it becomes faster and more difficult to stay on. Because of this, there are some safety features put in place to prevent injury after a fall.
Mechanical bulls like the ones we offer at Buckin Wild come with an inflatable ring to catch riders that fall off the bull. Not only does this provide a cushion on the ground, but around all sides to ensure riders don’t land on the hard ground. In addition to an inflatable to land on, our bulls are also padded at their base to prevent injury should the rider land close to the base of the bull.
Even with all of the safety measures in place, you might still be concerned that the bull isn’t safe for children because it is too difficult. This couldn’t be further than the truth! Our mechanical bulls are completely adjustable and controlled by the operator. Because of this bull rides can be as easy or as difficult as desired, making it a perfect entertainment option for guests of all ages.
