If you’re a child of the 70’s, like me, you know how exciting it was to watch the crowd around the mechanical bull at the local watering hole… or maybe you even gave it a go yourself? Everyone wanted to be a cowboy!
The days of having to visit a dark, smoke-filled establishment to get your “cowboy on” are long gone. Now you can call your local party rental company, and have a mechanical bull at your own party! They can set up at your home, church, company event… just about anywhere you want.
When renting a mechanical bull, be sure to do your homework! There are a lot of companies offering mechanical bulls. Some offer incredibly low prices and deals too good to be true! Be leery! They are often not insured. You want to be sure that you rent your mechanical bull from a company that is insured and that have trained employees that set up and staff the bull for you. Be sure to ask if they have any special requirements for power or set up, so you will not end up with unfortunate surprises the day of your event.
The mechanical bull is good for all ages. The action of the bull is controlled by the attendant. They can control the speed of the bull, as well as the spinning and bucking motion. The seasoned rodeo rider will have a challenge on their hands. However, if you have some young cowpokes or “green horns” that want to have a ride, no problem! They simple slow it down for a nice smooth ride.
If you are looking for other items to round out your event, ask the rental company what other western themed attractions they may offer. The Rodeo Roper is great for learning to lasso. How about a western theme inflatable such as a bounce house or obstacle course? Ask the rental company if they offer any package deals or discounts for renting multiple items. The may have a western themed package already put together to make you planning a breeze. If not, most companies will offer a discount if you are renting multiple items.
If your event is in the summer months, don’t for get something to help cool off your guests. Inflatable water slides or portable a dunk tank could be just the ticket to beat that summer heat. Also ask your rental company about portable evaporative coolers or mist fans and don’t forget the sno-kone machine! The right company can make your “Hoe-down” the party of the year.
