Check out Galaxy Multi Ride’s Haunted House Attractions for 2013

Even before the air turns crisp in the Fall, anyone interested in the business of Haunted House production is busy. There are actors to hire, and attractions to plan out carefully. Consideration to safety is important, as is giving visitors what they want in having a good scare. Most find that each new year sees a little more competition, and it gets harder and harder to discover new ideas for Haunted Houses that keep guests coming in AND coming back. Keeping a spooky frightening atmosphere while adding fun attractions is a tricky part of this business. The combination of mechanical rides for Halloween Haunted Houses might seem an odd combination if you haven’t seen the Spider, Pumpkin and Corn Maize rides.Buy Mechanical Pumpkin




Like the mechanical bull ride often used in bars and carnivals, the Arachnid Attack (a rodeo mechanical Spider ride ) is safe, easy to setup, and will keep crowds interested and engaged while waiting for their turn to be escorted to the main Haunted House attractions.

Fitted with Galaxy’s Automatic Stop System, the Mechanical Spider stops as soon as the rider falls. Made of Sofolex material ensures that riders will not complain of impact injuries or pain from using the ride. From the guest’s standpoint, just as with mechanical bull, riders will want to try again soon, and crowds will want to watch. What more can you look for in a haunted house attraction?

As part of a Haunted House attraction this ride fits the theme, and as the Spider tries to buck the rider two LED digital time clocks give the operator and rider a running total of the time. Spinning, bucking action gives the rider an element of thrill that will keep the rider and those watching entertained.

The Rodeo Pumpkin system works in the same way with a smug, leering jack o’ lantern face keeping up the pace. As with the Spider the Pumpkin has a choice of landing inflatables for soft landings, and takes only about 20 minutes to set up. Similarly the mechanical corn maize ride will fit the theme of the other Haunted House attractions and have the action of mechanical rides for Halloween. The mechanical corn maize ride was developed for the very popular corn mazes that get more and more attention each year.

Thrills and scares are what crowds are coming for, and as these rides fit the theme of a Haunted House, they don’t jar the guests out of their spooky mood. These rides keep the action going all the way into the main event of having the fright night they are hoping to find.

Nightclub and Bar Promotions That Work – From Galaxy Multi Rides

The secret to a successful night club and bar business is to find promotions that will really work. Galaxy Multi Rides has just what you need for the perfect promotion.

Posted in Advertising Promotions | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment


In 1990 Galaxy designed the Galaxy Multi Ride system & re-invented the mechanical bull in order to create a safe alternative to the potentially dangerous mechanical bull machines that were available at the time.

At that time, the original mechanical bulls were designed for training professional rodeo riders.  The transition from being a training device to an entertainment ride happened in the late 1960’s.  Someone thought it was a great idea to install a training mechanical bull in to a bar to entertain the cowboys. These were very powerful hydraulic machines or 220 volt powered machines with 3-5 HP motors.

The idea caught on and more & more of this kind of machine found their way in to bars all over the country.  Unfortunately, as mechanical bull riding became popular with the general public, injuries started to happen.   The main problems from origination still continue with this type of mechanical bulls. Fundamentally this type of machine was designed as a training device for professional rodeo riders, NOT as an amusement device.

Forty years later these type of machines have not changed in design and are still manufactured, sold and in operation today. Most people’s perception of the motion of a mechanical bull is the back end of the ride lurches up to approximately to a 90 degree angle and throws the rider over the head. This perception is absolutely correct. The combination of this highly aggressive motion combined with a fast spin motion; is going to throw the rider right over the front of the bull body virtually every time.

At this point the following can occur.

1)     The rider collides with the hard head of the bull. Injury risk potential? Broken teeth, broken nose, injuries to face

2)     The rider goes over the head. To break their fall, the rider will instinctively put their arms out.  Injury risk potential? Broken/dislocated fingers, wrists, arms and neck

Not one of these types of machines is fitted with an Automatic Stop Sensor or a Soft Foam Safety head. Stopping the bull is left solely to the discretion of the operator; if the bull does not stop instantly the moment the rider falls, this can lead to impact injuries to the rider.

Another potential hazard with these types of machines are that the motors are connected to a drive/fan belt, which turns the bearing, making it rotate. The potential problem is drive belts can slip or break, if not regularly maintained and checked for wear. If the drive belt does slip or break the machine will not be able to stop, thus it will continue to rotate and can be a potential danger to the rider.

A common feature of this type of machine is the professional style rope/strap handle used on real bulls. The rider on a real bull wants to get as much grip as possible to stay on the bull longer. A leather strap or rope is strapped to the bull and the rider will slide their hand through it to improve their grip.  If this style of handle is fitted to a mechanical bull, the potential for entrapment injuries is horrendous. People have suffered broken bones and lost fingers through using this type of handle.

In the early days there was no type of protection for the participant to fall on.   Even though an inflatable safety cushion would be supplied today, there is still an unacceptable amount of steel exposed that can cause injury. Overall the risk of injury to the rider is far greater on this type of machine if it does not have the safety features, which are found on the systems like the Galaxy Multi Ride.


The Galaxy Multi Ride system was designed to eradicate all of the above mentioned safety issues. The Galaxy Multi Ride system is not a Rodeo Simulator; it is an entertainment machine that offers over 50 different themed ride attachments.  The Rodeo Bull just happens to be one of those ride attachments.

The first safety point Galaxy addressed was the actual motion of the machine and the power of the motors. Galaxy designed a unique pitch and roll motion, the machine will pitch forward 30 degrees, roll left 20 degrees, pitch back 20 degrees and roll right 20 degrees. This motion is then repeated to create a continuous, pitch/roll motion. The motion created ensures that the rider will fall left or right of the bull body, landing on their back or bottom on the soft safety cushion, 99% of the time.

Galaxy realized it was unnecessary to use high-powered electric motors to achieve the desired ride. Every machine has two 1 horsepower electric motors that are powered from 110 volts; one to control the rotation motion & one to control the pitch/roll motion.  Both motors employ a direct drive system that eradicates the need for any drive belts. This means there is no chance whatsoever that the machine can continue to move once the rider has fallen off.

Galaxy identified the importance of removing the chance of human error in stopping the ride when the rider falls. This is done via the Auto Stop Sensor (ASS). The ASS is an optical sensor fitted to the ride body; the rider wears a wristband lanyard around the wrist of the hand they will be using to hold on to the rope handle. At the end of the lanyard is a cover patch that is placed over the sensor & secured by Velcro. The operator can now start the ride.  As soon as the rider begins to fall, the Velcro patch becomes detached and the machine will stop instantly. Even if the operator is distracted the ride will always stop.

To remove any potential of impact injuries by colliding with a hard fiberglass or metal head, Galaxy invented & developed their Soft Foam Safety head. The head is made from a product called Sofolex, which was specifically designed by the company for this purpose; every ride is constructed & fitted with a Soft Foam Safety head.

The company even designed a special rope handle to ensure that the rider’s hand or fingers couldn’t get trapped. The rope only protrudes above the body by six inches so the rider cannot wrap it around their hands. The inflatable safety cushion was meticulously designed to offer maximum protection to the rider. Safety padding covers every part of exposed steel; every inflatable cushion has a retaining wall around the perimeter to ensure the rider cannot fall out of the enclosure.

The company is aware that a novice operator cannot possibly know or gauge the ability of a rider. Therefore Galaxy has created a series of pre-set automatic motion programs that have been designed to offer a safe & exciting ride experience for every level of rider ability.

Galaxy has designed state of the art electronics employing a dynamic breaking system to the motors, this ensures that even in an emergency situation or sudden loss of power, the machine will always stop instantly.

Galaxy believes that safety is only achieved through education.   Therefore the company has implemented a choice of training programs. Every customer is extended the invitation to attend the factory for training on the set up & operation of their Multi Ride System. If the customer is unable to attend, the company has produced a training questionnaire and offers a training program via the telephone or video-conference.  Galaxy understands that if a user has not been trained then they really can’t be expected to know what is right or wrong.  Therefore,  offering correct training programs are a part of every sale.

Here is a summary of the safety features & innovations on the Galaxy Multi Ride

  • Unique pitch & roll motion
  • Direct Drive system
  • Soft Foam Safety Head
  • Automatic Stop Sensor
  • Special design rope handle
  • Custom design inflatable surround
  • State of the art electronics with dynamic breaking

Galaxy is the only company in the world who manufacture every part of their product in house in their own factory.

  • This includes the fabrication & engineering of the mechanical motion base.
  • The fabrication & lamination of all of the ride attachments,
  • The design and production of the control system electronics.
  • The design and manufacture of the inflatable safety cushions.

Each and every part is manufactured by trained technicians to the highest standard; the completed machine is thoroughly tested prior to delivery to the customer. This process is ensures that the customer is buying the safest Multi Ride system in the world.

If you are unsure as to which kind of machine you are hiring (renting), buying or even riding; just ask your provider if the machine has the above mentioned safety features.

Tips for Boosting Your Bar Business With a Mechanical Bull

BAD ASS BAR BULLOperating a bar or nightclub  can be tough in this economy. And , of course, lower profits mean less money for promotions and new activities. Unfortunately this should be one of the LAST things cut!

Advertising, Promotions and new Attractions bring people into the business. Galaxy Multirides has developed a way for a nightclub or bar to make money and advertise at the same time. They offer nightclub and bar promotions that work and that will make you money at the same time.

If your club has some good vendors, they might be willing sponsor the purchase of any ride with their image or logo on it.

One of the first decisions that has to be made is whether to rent a mechanical bull for a short term promotion, or whether a mechanical should be purchased and used indefinitely for a series of promotions, along with the offer of a very nice main attraction.

This decision is a fairly easy one.  The rental of a mechanical bull ranges from $895-$1800 depending on where, how long & when you want to run your promotion.  Most places will use their mechanical bull a minimum of 4 times.  When you consider that the cost of a mechanical bull is far less than $20,000, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll want to purchase your bull.

Below is one of the newest mechanical bulls offered buy Galaxy Multi Rides…and this bull was designed JUST for bars and nightclubs.  The ball is called the “Bad Ass Bar Bull”.  Just imagine the fun this bull will offer your customers!

Another great thing about the Multi Ride Mechanical Bull is that it’s portable. Want to promote your bar business at a college event? The Galaxy Multiride Mechanical Bull can be easily set up in 15 minutes. So…if the business won’t come to you….you can go to the business.
