How to Buy Amusement Park Rides

April 10th, 2012 by admin | Permalink

by Suzanne Burns | eHow.com

Used amusement park rides can be purchased through several online businesses. This is a major purchase with an uncertain return because the rides are used, possibly in varying states of disrepair, and an extreme liability if you operate the ride and an injury occurs.

Considerations

Purchasing an amusement park ride is best left to a serious collector who intends to display the ride as a museum piece. Then there is no risk of injury involved in operating or riding the ride. As of August 2010, cheaper rides start at around $50,000 to purchase. The price rises for large rides and carousels, which are more popular with collectors.

Inspection

Have any ride you are buying inspected and installed by a ride inspection specialist. Businesses that sell rides can put you in contact with legitimate inspectors. You will need training and a permit if you do decide to operate the ride.

Investment

Most amusement park ride dealers require a 10 percent to 20 percent down payment on the purchase of a ride. Inspections will vary in cost depending on the type of ride purchased. You can sometimes work with the seller to negotiate shipping fees, as the cost to ship an amusement park ride can be exorbitant.

Are Roller Coasters Really Dangerous?

March 28th, 2012 by admin | Permalink

wisegeek.com

Roller coasters are popular attractions at amusement parks all over the world, and patrons flock to them for thrills, especially in the summer. However, some deaths and serious injuries have been associated with roller coasters, raising concerns about their safety, especially for fragile and elderly riders. The relative lack of regulation of the amusement park industry has also been a cause of concern for some lawmakers, who would like to see more oversight of roller coasters to prevent injuries.

Statistically, a roller coaster is not very dangerous, especially if you are in good physical condition. Amusement park patrons are far more likely to die in accidents on the way to the park than they are to suffer injuries on a roller coaster, assuming that the equipment is well maintained and run responsibly. Amusement parks run numerous tests on their equipment to ensure that it is safe for use, including measurements designed to determine the g-forces that riders will be subject to. Amusement parks like their patrons healthy and alive, so they try to build roller coasters which are fun and safe.

There are, however, a few instances in which riding a roller coaster may be unsafe. For all riders, riding equipment that is not well maintained is risky. When riding a roller coaster, it is always a good idea to inspect the equipment. Look for signs of rust, poor repair jobs, or dirt, suggesting that the roller coaster is not well cared for. When you strap into a roller coaster, make sure that the straps are not faded, repaired, or frayed, and if a restraining bar is used, make sure that it locks into place snugly, leaving no room to wiggle or slide. Small children are especially at risk of falling out of roller coasters, due to their small size, so make sure that they are going to be safe.

Roller coasters can also be dangerous for people with heart conditions. The sense of excitement that accompanies a roller coaster ride is also accompanied by an elevated heart rate, which can cause an arrhythmia or myocardial infarction, better known as a heart attack. People with known heart conditions should talk to their doctors about riding roller coasters, because they may be unsafe.

In addition, roller coasters have been linked with the appearance of blood clots on the brain, called subdural hematomas. A subdural hematoma occurs when blood vessels on the brain burst and the blood starts to clot, and it can be a serious health problem. This occurs very rarely, and is linked with roller coasters that subject patrons to high g-forces or instances where a passenger was whipped around as a result of poorly secured safety equipment. Individuals who take blood thinners should avoid roller coasters for this reason, and anyone who experiences repeated headaches after a roller coaster ride should mention it to their doctor.

Introduction to Arcade Machines

March 13th, 2012 by admin | Permalink

by James Bright | quarterarcade.com

Introduction

Sooner or later you’ll want to learn more about your arcade game. Either you’ll get curious about how it works, want to make fine tune and adjustment, or you maybe you’re trying your hand at fixing your first game. This article will give you some very basic information about an arcade game. It’s meant for the first timer/hobbyist who has never worked on a coin-operated game before but is interested in getting more familiar with their game.

The Basics: Three Parts of a Game

Whenever I’m explaining an arcade game to a person, I like to describe the basic components of a game. Most, but not all games1, have just these three basic parts. They are:

  • Power Supply: Powers the game and monitor. Usually located on the base of the game, and in some older games may be comprised of a few components.
  • Monitor: Display for the game. Common sizes for classic arcade games are 19″ monitors for upright games, and 13″ for mini and cocktail games.
  • PCB or Board: “Computer” component of the game. May be as simple as one board, or may contain a series of boards. Can be located in many places, but typically the PCB is on the side or back of the game. Varies greatly by game.

While these are the three basic components of a game, there is really a fourth component: the connectors. Many times this is overlooked, but it definitely worth mentioning. The Power Supply, Monitor, and PCB are all connected by this connector or Wiring Harness. For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll count the joysticks and buttons as part of the connectors. If you think about it, this is pretty accurate: they connect us, the game player, to the game. A large part of troubleshooting arcade games is finding out which component is causing the problem and then either replacing or repairing it. One of the first things to check when looking at a game that isn’t functioning properly is the connectors. Make sure everything is connected up properly before suspecting any of the three basic components.

Power Supply

The purpose of the power supply (PS) is pretty simple: it supplies voltage to the game and monitor so that they run properly. Typically, a power supply will provide +5V, -5V, and 12V to the game (Direct Current), as well as a ground line and +/- AC (Alternating Current). If your game requires those voltages, you’re in pretty good shape as a switching power supply is a “modern” power supply that is easy to replace. Prior to the switching power supply, games came with custom power supplies. Sometimes they would supply odd voltages such as +25V, +30V, and even -12V. In some cases this means that a game can not be upgraded to a switching power supply. Instead the original linear power supply will need to be repaired.

Generally speaking, the +5V is what will be used to power the logic on the main PCB. The other voltages, if used, drive power to sound PCBs and amplifiers.

You’ll probably hear the term “linear power supply” as well as “switching power supply.” These are basically the methods by which the AC from your house is converted into DC for your game. Linear power supplies are the older, propriatary power supplies that vary greatly from game to game. Switching power supplies, or “Peter Chou power supply” are newer and pretty standard.

Monitors

We could write many, many articles dedicated to monitors alone. But given that this is just an introduction to arcade games, we’re only going to cover the basics here.

There are a few different types of monitors:

  • Raster Scan: The type of monitor that is much like your T.V. Raster scan monitors are used in games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter, and the like. They project images on the screen by using an electron beam to scan across the screen from left-to-right, top-to-bottom. Raster Scan monitors are generally available in normal and medium resolution. Nearly all games are normal resolution.
  • Vector: This type of monitor is used in games like Tempest, Star Wars, Battlezone, and Asteroids. Instead of scanning down the entire screen, the electron beam is used to draw lines. These monitors operate more like an oscilloscope than a T.V.

The most common work that a hobbyist will do to a monitor is a cap-kit. This is simply replacing all of the electrolytic capacitors that are used in a monitor. Over time, capacitors wear out as the material used in the cap evaporates. Do not attempt to do a cap-kit unless you are thoroughly familiar with discharing a monitor (not covered in this article). A cap-kit usually improves the sharpness and contrast of a monitor, but usually2 does not fix a broken monitor.

The monitor is probably the most unreliable of the components of an arcade game. If your game is “playing blind” (that is, you can hear everything, but you can’t see anything on the screen), then you know that your power supply and PCB are working. You have something wrong with the monitor or connection to the monitor. Monitor trouble-shooting is very specific to the monitor that you are working on. However, with the appropriate monitor documention and a multimeter, most monitors can be repaired.

With the exception of vector games, arcade games were not released with a specific monitor. So, if you find that your monitor needs to be replaced, you don’t have to search for the exact monitor for your replacement. In many cases you can replace it with a generic monitor, new or used.

PCBs

The “brains” of the game is the PCB. This part of the game can be as simple as one board, or several boards wired together. For the beginner hobbyist, there isn’t a lot that you can do once you’ve identified the problem as being PCB related. That being said, there are a couple of cases where the board can be fixed rather easily. If you think you have a problem with the board, first try reconnecting the board where the board plugs into the wiring harness. What you’re really doing is making sure that the connection to the board is good. If that doesn’t fix the problem, then try pressing down gently on chips that are in sockets. Sometimes the connection between the chips3 and the board is faulty. In fact our experience has been that it’s just as likely (if not more likely) that the sockets have gone bad rather than the problem being the ROMs themselves.

One of the most common PCB related questions is game compatibility. Around 1986-87 a wiring interface standard known as JAMMA (Japanese Amusement Machine Manufacturers Association) was established. Since then, most, but not all games, have adhered to the JAMMA pinout standard. If you have a cabinet with JAMMA wiring, it is usually easy for you to rule in or rule out a board being defective. For more information about board compatability, read Anthony’s article PCB Swapping 101.

Conclusion

This article was meant as a primer for understanding arcade games. In the near future I’ll write an article that ties together this information with some basic troubleshooting.

Amusement and Family Entertainment Business Basics

February 16th, 2012 by admin | Permalink

by Christine Pollock | business.com

When you know the basics of the amusement and family entertainment business, it’s easier to provide families with an escape that will please all ages. Draw in the crowds with crowd-pleasing entertainment at fair prices.

Family entertainment companies realize that families need a place to get away and have fun together. When setting up a family entertainment business or working with theme park companies, you might want to address the following issues:

1. What do people want to experience when they go to amusement parks?

2. What kind of talent should you hire for family and kids entertainment?

3. Where should you purchase equipment and supplies for family entertainment centers and amusement parks, and what should you buy?

Create family entertainment centers or amusement parks with popular attractions everyone can enjoy

Before finalizing plans for your family entertainment center, do some research to find what appeals most to the modern family and plan accordingly. You may want to review information that analyzes amusement parks.

Try: Coaster Grotto claims to have the most prestigious awards for the amusement park industry. It lists winners and has reviews detailing why the parks and rides won the awards. The World Waterpark Association offers a page of fun facts citing the history of water parks and interesting research. It lists the most popular water parks in the United States.

Employ entertainers who draw audiences of all ages to theme parks

Whether you want to offer meals with dressed-up characters in your family entertainment center or an acrobatic act at an amusement park or water park, draw people into your park with high-quality entertainment. Learn what duties it’s fair to ask the entertainers to perform before hiring.

Try: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Office of Occupational Statistics and Employment Projections offers a detailed listing of what a family entertainment provider should expect to pay hired talent. It offers easy links to specialized services for more information. EntertainmentCareers.Net encourages employers to sift through its web pages to find entertainers with talents that suit their purposes. Its easy-to-use format also allows business owners to post job descriptions and receive applications from potential employees.

Seek expert advice when purchasing supplies for theme parks and family entertainment centers

Local family entertainment centers and theme parks become popular escapes, especially when they offer something more than rides. Consult with experts and do some research to determine what you should offer.

Acquiring used amusement FEC equipment is also a great idea. With expert advice you can get second hand equipment in good condition, which will lower the costs of starting up your business.

Try: ThemeParkCompany.com offers a list of consultants from around the country that specialize in the amusement industry. Blooloop.com suggests vendors from around the country that offer family entertainment supplies ranging from coin-operated machines to themed retail stores and theatrical equipment.

Laser Tag Equipment

January 31st, 2012 by admin | Permalink

laser-tag-equipment.com

In the amusement and family entertainment center business there are a few key activities: Laser Tag, Go-Karts, Indoor Playgrounds, Amusement Rides, Coin Operated Games, and Miniature Golf being the most prominent.

Check out the best and most reliable Go Karts available at pursuitzone.com.

For the successful operator, each activity has to balance a delicate tight-rope of purchase cost, entertainment value, operating costs, space requirements and return on investment. When it comes to laser tag equipment, it’s all about through-put.

Most laser tag manufacturers tend to demonstrate the market power of their laser tag equipment with graphs and illustrations that indicate 100% usage and a fast time to return on investment calculation. “If you have 20 laser tag vests and run at 90% to 100% capacity, here’s how fast our laser tag equipment will drive a return on your investment.”

This can sometimes be deceiving. Other than a few opening weekends, keeping your laser tag business running at even 80% of capacity year-to-year is a challenge at best.

Getting used laser tag equipment can be a nice idea for a amusement entertainment center business because it is less expensive, and as long as the used equipment you get in good condition it is a great investment.

Laser tag equipment, battery life, arena maze layout, number of players and your complete amusement attractions activity mix all play a vital role in keeping your guests excited and motivated to come back and play again and again.

Modern Laser Tag Equipment is More Sophisticated

January 3rd, 2012 by admin | Permalink

by Mike | onlineaustralia.org

There was a time when laser tag equipment was big, bulky and looked more like something you would see in an episode of The X Files, than anything from this plant, but over the last ten, or so years, the technology has become much more sophisticated and the equipment is much easier to use, when defeating your enemy out on the field.

Essential Equipment

When setting up a Laser tag event, there are a few pieces of equipment which you absolutely must have, in order to have the best laser tag even possible. Depending on whether you play indoors or outdoors, your equipment requirement will differ.

Of course, the most important pieces of equipment are the guns, themselves. A good laser tag gun will have a range of between 500-1000ft and will be programmable for group activity.

Indoor Play

Indoor laser tag establishments can be found all over the country and are particularly popular with children, teenagers and family. These typically consist of a darkened arena in which the game is played, using hand-held guns and infrared packs, which hold the targets. Apart from this, it is likely that a computer will be linked to the packs and guns, in order to keep score during the game, so a victor can be declared, when the battle is over.

Outdoor Play

Outdoor play is relatively new, and is more popular for corporate events. As the lasers are expected to perform well in the daylight, they will need to work well over a longer distance, so more powerful guns and targets will be needed, than would be the case for indoor play. A large field will also be needed — paintball fields are ideal and including laser tag events at your paintball field provides an excellent source of extra income.

Interactive Game Enhancement Modules

These are often used to add an extra dimension to the game and make it more fun for the players. They can be used as a team base, or can be used as a station to power up. In order to power up, you much exchange one point from your time in the game, thus erasing one kill.

Arcade Games – A Classic Genre Revisited

December 7th, 2011 by admin | Permalink

by James Anthony Harris | ezinearticles.com

Arcade games have been popular for decades and were originally found – as the name suggests – in arcades around the world. Their huge appeal saw teenagers pumping their pocket money in to them, attempting to land the high score on the particular machine and gain kudos within their group of friends. They have since made the transition over to the home video game market, and are a major force in both the shop-bought and downloaded entertainment market.

Area 51 Arcade Game, available at pursuitzone.com.

What is an arcade game?

Arcade games have many distinguishing features that endear them to a worldwide audience of fans, spanning many generations. The most obvious characteristic of any arcade game is its gameplay – controls are often simpler than more expensive games, giving the user the chance to get to grips with the basics straight away and allowing them to jump straight in to the action without lengthy tutorials or a boring night reading the instruction booklet. This means that the game has to rely heavily on its intuitive and user friendly qualities to negate the fact that many are not anywhere as complicated as other titles in other genres.

Another feature is the speed at which the user can progress. With many more expensive titles, progression is made over days, weeks and months. However, with an arcade game, the progression is designed to be much steeper, and the full game can often only last minutes. This is the case in such games as Pac Man – the player starts off at the first level and quickly works their way through the game until, in a relatively brief space of time, the player loses and starts again from the beginning. This ensures that the focus of the game is beating previously set high scores.

Current arcade games

There are two primary types of arcade games in circulation today – games originally made for arcade machines that have now been transferred to computers, and newer games made to emulate the style of the original arcade genre.

Such classic games as Pac Man, Asteroids and Q-Bert launched the genre to a worldwide audience and were all solely score based – no achievements or special features, just the raw game in all its glory. Since being transferred to a home gaming platform, these games (Pac Man especially) have proved huge successes, inspiring a new generation of gamers to play the games that their fathers played twenty years ago. Pac Man can now be bought for $6.99 online, which is a bargain when compared to console games costing many times more. In fact, most classic arcade games can be bought for this price, allowing the computer game enthusiast to really build up an awe-inspiring collection of memorabilia.

New games are also being constantly created by developers to invigorate the arcade game market. Such games as Smash Frenzy, Super Granny and Chicken Invaders have all proved hugely popular to discerning consumers. These games offer the same basic playability as the older arcade classics, yet add a sense of modernity to the overall feel and graphics. They can also include achievements and side games to keep the gamer entertained.
