With attractions preparing to reopen as of next month, children’s ride manufacturer World of Rides is gearing up for a stellar season, with sales manager Andrew Robinson explaining just what sets the family-owned manufacturer apart.


With domestic tourism predicted to skyrocket this year, World of Rides is encouraging operators to capitalise on the huge demand for staycations and daycations by installing the company’s popular 12v and 24v battery rides from its 72-model range.

With six new models already in pre-production development due to “high demand from operators” the family-owned manufacturer urged those looking for products such as its 240v static children’s ride range to place their orders now.

“Most of the UK’s leading visitor attraction operators have long been planning for their reopening, and have been placing their orders since November 2020, for pollution-free battery rides in their parks and resorts,” said sales manager Andrew Robinson.

“They know that however short the season turns out to be for 2021, their attractions will almost certainly still achieve pay-back plus a profit, based upon their past experience of World of Rides hugely popular and profitable attractions.”

The company’s product offering includes a wide selection of turnkey themed twin-seat battery ride attractions for holiday parks and seaside resorts, such as pollution-free “Parent and Child” Bumper Boat Aqua- Ball Pools, Bumper Car Tracks and Bumper-Ball Pitches.

The range also includes Go-Kart, Quad Bike and Beach Buggy Tracks, and Outlander-Adventure Trails, as well as full Driving Schools, a complete children’s play park and custom rides design service.

As well as featuring digital sound effects, LED lighting and rugged GRP bodywork for reliability, all WoR’s rides and attractions are also fully compliant with HSE-Bacta-ADIPS safety testing and carry full safety documentation lasting twelve months, while main ride metal frames carry a five-year manufacturing warranty.

“The days of putting only one or two old battery rides on a track are now thankfully long gone, as visitors demand shorter queuing times and the excitement of an unforgettable, fully interactive and competitive experience,” added Robinson.

“The Bank of England have recently predicted that the public have amassed savings of between £150-£250bn during lockdown, to spend on their chosen leisure pursuits, which if they enjoy them, will result in them returning for even more daycations and staycations in future years too!”
