LONDON, England -- On display at the upcoming EAG International Expo and Visitor Attraction Expo here will be new equipment (and some perennial patron-pleasers) from World of Rides (Chester-le-Street, Durham, UK). According to the manufacturer, World of Rides' 12- and 24V. battery-powered rides have been gratifyingly successful in 2018. As a result, operators are asking for even more variety.

World of Rides' response to these requests will be showcased in Booth 825 at EAG & VAE. The brand-new "Big Car Outlander," for example, is a side-by-side-seating adventure vehicle for either a parent and a child or one or two children on their own  (if more than five years old). This line's fully-functioning controls allow the rides to be operated as "driving school" cars, and  independent suspensions permit them to be used on moderate outdoor trails or indoors.

 "Battle Star" bumper cars allow either a parent and child or one or two children by themselves (if over the age of eight) to go into battle against each other. Each car is fitted with a laser gun and three targets;  the drivers strive to hit one of the targets on an opponents' car. A successful shot causes the victim to stop and spin before it can get back into the fray.

World of Rides' "Future Bikes" are said to be the only battery-powered rides equipped with LED revolving-wheel lights, plus paintwork that reflects ultraviolet light. This space-age illumination creates an exciting ride for children between the ages of three and 12.

The "Crazy Beetle 360° Steering" ride for three- to 10-year old children incorporates an electronic steering wheel that can be freely spun in either direction; where it stops determines the new direction in which the car will travel. This fills every experience with surprises.

World of Rides also will show off representative examples of their popular  racing  and and driving school cars.

A highly-visible attraction in the World of Rides exhibit will be the children's  "Continental Galloper" carousel series. According to the manufacturer, this is a very popular coin-operated 240V. three- horse "galloper" carousel with features unmatched by any rival of similar price.

The three-horse "galloper" carousel remains popular with parents, the manufacturer explains, because they remember  their own childhood experiences with rides of this sort. Moreover, the combination of  bright LED turntable lights and artwork, along with the unmistakable fairground organ sound effects, make the ride not only popular and profitable, but also the most nostalgic children's carousel currently available in the UK.

The ride can be supplied with or without the high-top canopy (above the rounding boards), depending on the ceiling height available in the operator's premises.
