Equipment Management Programs, are you Planning for the Future Today?

Today, I thought I would write about something most of us aren’t thinking about this time of year. That is selling used amusement equipment. The spring is usually when we are our most optimistic. We are getting in new rides, games, inflatables, and attractions; or we have just finished refurbishing some of them. We are not thinking about or planning to sell anything at this time of year. But, given the unpredictability of our industry, maybe you should be thinking about it. What I mean is you should have a process where you evaluate all your equipment as the season goes on.

I am mentioning this because of a recent experience with the general manager of a chain of family entertainment centers in the southeast. They came to me with several rides that have been in storage for several years. Some of them are missing wiring, fencing, and even motors as a result of vandals stealing them for the scrap metal value. I explained to them that amusement equipment doesn’t do anything but get worse in storage. I advised them to start a program where they would identify poor performing items so that by the time the ride is ready to be dismantled we already have a new home lined up for it. He agreed and this made me think that I should bring this topic up with my readers.

If you notice that a certain piece of equipment isn’t being rented as often as it used to be, isn’t making as much money as in previous years, or is just getting older and nearing replacement; you can start planning for how you will dispose of it. You can take pictures in a variety of locations and in several different lighting conditions. You can record video of it in operation along with a voiceover introduction or description. You can gather complete technical information including any history of repairs. You could even list it for sale telling buyers that it will be available after a certain date. You can offer them for trade in exchange for items of equal value. And don’t forget about carnivals and fun fairs in other countries. Many showmen from Australia, South America, and South Africa will be looking to purchase used items in the middle of the summer in the United states and Europe. These are all things that the midway is ready and willing to assist with.

Selling used amusement equipment isn’t easy at any time, but especially in this difficult world economy; it takes longer. So, why wait until the end of the season to get started. Feel free to call or email with questions or to place a listing. I hope to hear from you soon.

Playing Arcade Games the Entire Day. Do you Know the Gains?

Okay! I will admit, whenever the editor is away I take a peep in the old arcade games website site and give it a shot. I’ll admit to not being able stop or shoot the basic number of thugs trying to capture the world; my arithmetic is that of a baby class high performer and my driving skills, zero.

Generally, I love dabbling arcade games. Talking about arcade games, a chat with a wonderful older lady revealed the excitement she used to enjoy at the old predecessor to the internet arcade games: “Edwardian” Penny Arcades in her country, England. The lady together with friends of hers, armed with pennies thus the name would see what the butler saw a somewhat risque peek at parlor maids unmentionables; try her hand literally on the test grip machine; look at some Fatty Arbuckle mini movies, or more demurely, black and white views of legendary landmarks.

Lamentably, for some people, such days passed long ago and as the wheel turns, new things take over. The 60s and 70s left us with pin ball machines (Tommy, rock musical ring a bell) and while personal computers evolved, arcade games. I am supposed is to write some sentences about Arcade Games and this meat play a few. I got attracted to getting rid of my aggravation by blowing up all and sundry no! I’m not going to reveal my score. I put myself into my 11 year old niece mindset and had a look at suiting cute girls, well at least I thought that was its name.Bingo! Finally I discovered my specialty word puzzles ranging from scrabble-style to match the letter. I had a look at math equations and just held my own.

Every one of these games is fun to play an freebie. Despite this, there exist a number of gambling arcade games and here it is upon the reviewer to ask possible players to act responsibly in this regard. Check this site out, select your games and have fun. As for me, I am off to help Super Mario destroy the ice tower then we’ll rescue the princess.
