Types Of Dodgem Track Available.
The continental type track has both advantages and disadvantages when compared to its traditional English counterpart. Being trailer mounted they are easier to transport, and quicker to set up/take down , requiring fewer personnel to do the job. Some of the tracks we supply can be set up in around 3 hours. Additionally they tend to be decorated to a higher standard with fancy airbrushed artwork and computerised lighting systems.
The main drawback they have, is the fact that being trailer mounted they are larger and heavier, limiting the venues they can attend. We have successfully carried English type tracks under low bridges or through narrow gates and erected them in hard to reach places, this just isn’t possible with a continental track, you would need around a 9 foot wide and 15 feet high entrance to accommodate the transport vehicle and trailer. When dodgems are required with a smaller track size, we have a couple of downsized traditional examples and can supply on request a full range of track sizes and quantity of cars.
Both types of dodgem sets have the same types of dodgem cars and give the same great ride.
In addition we can supply a full range of other funfair rides and attractions for children and adults, including;
