Living in the Grand Canyon State, most of us are well aware of its rugged history. This is the land of the cowboys, the Marlboro men. If you’ve longed for the day you could strut your stuff and don a cowboy hat and boots for a reason, your time has come. Now you can play with the big boys with your very own mechanical bull rental.
No Training Required
Professional bull riders don’t just jump up on a bull without training. But mechanical bulls aren’t quite the same as the real thing. Sure, your goal is to stay on for as long as possible without being bucked off, but there’s no fear of being chased afterward. A mechanical bull is safely positioned in one place and even comes with its own operator to be sure that the bucking stops once you fall off.
And what if you don’t make it for the full seven minutes to call yourself a champion mechanical bull rider? No worries! These bulls don’t throw you onto the dusty ground; instead, you land on soft cushions and are ready to go again in no time!
Suitable for Any Age
Mechanical bulls aren’t just for the men looking to prove their mettle. Nope, these furry fakes are perfect for nearly any age. Even the little kids can get into the action when the operator slows down the pace to give them a thrill but no big jumps.
Of course, one should always exercise caution when it comes to getting into the (foam-lined) arena with one of these bulls. Pregnant women and people who can’t handle jerking rides because of neck and back issues would do best to cheer from the sidelines. Or laugh. You know, whichever fits the situation best.
Okay, there aren’t really any rules to riding a mechanical bull, but if you want it to be as close to authentic as possible, you’ll want to follow two guidelines.
1. Hang on with only one hand. This is not a two-handed sport! You wrap that rein around your wrist and hang on tight. The other hand should either hold onto your hat or just fly around in the air as you yell, “Yee-haw!”
2. Don’t fall off. Real bull riders have to stay on the bull for seven minutes. To get the most out of your experience, you should strive to remain aloft just as long as they do.
