To Select Proper Equipments, the Amusement Park Should Know the Four Suggestions!
To be honest, this question has no actual reference indicator and it is difficult to answer a number. Because children’s park area size, equipment configuration, decoration degree, market competition business form, long-term development consideration and so on are not clear. To have accurate quotation, it’s necessary to understand clear the localization and investment ability.
It’s called seeing the dishes to eat. What kind of amusement equipment a project will buy? The biggest influencing factor should be the project investment of the project investor and the budget of amusement equipment purchase. The equipment purchase budget decides that the theme park can not do whatever it wants. Therefore, under the limitation of the budget of amusement equipment, the price of the equipment will be considered. Because the project must purchase the necessary equipment to meet the opening needs of the theme park within the budget.
- Equipment Manufacturers
Generally speaking, an amusement manufacturer can’t be versatile and can get anything it wants. Then, the project investors can only choose the equipment they want in the “equipment list” provided by the selected amusement equipment manufacturers. This, to some extent, limits the possibility of more equipment selection. You may say, I can choose more than ten 8 equipment manufacturers, buy 1 set of roller coaster in house A, buy a set of big swing hammer in house B, buy double layer turn horse in house C, buy in house D…This works in theory, but few manufacturers will do. Because first of all, there are a series of things after equipment purchase, such as transportation, installation, review and maintenance, etc., which will increase the cost of each item. Unless the amusement park developers are very rich, they will be able to coordinate so many amusement equipment suppliers.
- Preference of the Decision Maker
The decision maker’s own past experience, cognition and understanding of amusement equipment, as well as his own preference will, more or less, affect his decision of amusement equipment selection. Sometimes there is no more reason than the decision maker’s perception to choose an equipment from equipments, or to remove a set of devices from the purchase list. For example, if the decision maker of an amusement park is a father or mother with a child of several years old, he or she is more likely to buy more child-like rides; and a decision maker who has never dared to ride a roller coaster may think it too stimulating and prefers to replace it with a ferris wheel and so on. Of course, it may be true that some decision makers who have never played roller coasters themselves think that roller coasters have a good market, and many people prefer to play and decide to buy a roller coaster instead of a ferris wheel.
- Project Positioning and Marketing
From a professional perspective, this should be the biggest influence factor or even the decisive influence factor, but this factor is often ignored. The project positioning determines the park’s “status”, whether it is a small local park, a large national park for visitors, or a park for a specific group of people (such as children aged 3-14). Different positioning determines what kind of equipment is matching.
