What is a Waltzer Ride

Waltzer rides are one of the oldest and most popular funfair rides of all time. One of the things that has made them so popular of the years is that they are a funfair ride that is fun for the whole family. If there was a one ride fits all, it would defiantly be the waltzer ride.

When operating a waltzer ride moves around in a circle and at the same time moves up and down, with this movement it helps the rotating carriages spin around. The movement of the ride is what gave it its original name (waltzer) as in the type of dancing called the waltz. The first owners of the ride must of thought it looked like people waltzing around a ball room. We think it is a fantastic name.

Waltzers are a amazing attraction for all kind of events as they are suitable for all ages as they can be operated slow or fast, you have properly heard the saying scream if you want to go faster.

Power needed: We will supply our own super silent generator as the waltzer ride needs a lot of power and can not operated on standard power sockets.

Entrance Needed

The entrance needed for the waltzer ride needs to be a minimum of 9ft wide. The entrance also needs to have good access as the ride is trailer mounted and is transported by a large vehicle, so it needs to have enough room to be able to maneuver.

To give you a idea how much space is needed for the waltzer entrance please see the photos below of the waltzer ride ready for transport.

If the venue is a field and the entrance is soft we can also supply trackway mats if needed. We can supply up to 20 trackway mats for free to get the waltzer to the setup location but if you are needing more we will have to charge for the extra trackway mats.


The waltzer ride is setup by a highly trained team that can setup the waltzer ride in amazing time (approx 8 hours) regarding the amount of work that is needed to setup the ride. To setup the waltzer the team will need a setup space of  65ft x 50ft. The ground does not need to be completely flat but it will help the team setup and take down the ride much faster.

If the setup location is a soft field we can setup the waltzer on the trackway mats we will use to get to the setup location. This will help prevent any damage to your event field.


When operating the waltzer ride you have the option for us to play music of your choice and this is at no extra cost.

One of the best things about operating the waltzer ride is that it is operated manually and not by computers as most rides are now. This means we control the speed of the ride so we can send each ride as fast or as slow as you like. This is perfect if you have some guests who do not like fast rides.

Waltzer Hire Cost

There is a number of things to consider when calculating the waltzer hire cost.

1. Length of operating time

The length of operating time is one of the big factors when calculating the cost. The standard hire times for the waltzer hire is 4 hours hire and 6 hours hire but we can give you a quote for as many hours as you like.

The reason the length of time effects the total cost is because the staff are paid hourly so the longer the serving time the more we will have to pay our staff.

2. Time of day

The time of day effects the cost of the waltzer hire because if you are wanting us to operate past 10pm we will have to pay our staff extra for the unsociable hours. Also if the event is in to the early hours we might have to have over night accommodation for our staff.

3. Day Of The Week

The day of the week effects the cost as Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are the most in demand days so we will need to charge our going rates, but if your event is through the week we might be able to do the event cheaper for you.

4. Event Location

This is a factor in hire cost as the further the location from our bases the more it will cost in fuel and the more we will have to pay our staff from transporting times. If the location is also to far for us to drive back home after setting up the ride the day before we world also need to and accommodation costs to the total amount.

5. Number Of People Attending The Event

The number of people at the event is a factor in hire cost because the more people we need to accommodate the more staff we will need. The more staff will help us provide a better service when at a event with a large number of guests.

6. Difficulty Getting To The Setup Location

This is a factor on pricing because if it is very difficult getting to setup location it could take us a lot long to setup and take down the waltzer. Also if it is a long distance to the setup location from where we can park our vehicles we might need more staff to help with moving of the equipment.
