Leisure Engineering’s Bill Hammett is confident that the company’s battery-operated children’s rides will continue to be as popular as ever in 2017, and that their enduring appeal sets the company in good stead for continued success.
The family run business has been supplying and maintaining children’s rides for more than 20 years and Hammett believes the market will always be a successful one due to the enduring, well-proven, appeal of the rides.
“Children’s rides will always be popular. Rides provide an excitement and an experience that will be fundamental in a child growing up.”
2017 will bring the challenge of a new £1 coin for the market, but this is a challenge Leisure Amusements believe themselves well positioned to face. The products it stocks, supplied by Sela Battery Cars, are all mechanically operated, meaning that only small adjustments to the existing coin mechanism are necessary to enable transition to the new coin, and still allow the use of the old.
Going forward Hammett noted that the company is not merely relying on the ongoing popularity of their current portfolio to ensure success, but is instead maintaining a program of innovation.
He said: “We at Sela/Leisure Engineering have exciting new models in process of design. There will be new two seater cars which will be suitable for general track operation or for the driving school. The Sela Skiddy Drift Karts will also be available and this exciting new concept of Karts on plastic snow surface gives a real buzz ride in safe surroundings. We are looking forward to a successful 2017.”
