Bumper Boat Pond Design

Bumper boats have proven to be one of the best "impulse" attractions since the adaptation of multiple water treatment systems that permit the use of swimming pool quality water in the ponds.   This enabled manufacturers to add squirt guns to the boats, adding an additional entertainment value to the overall experience.

Entertainment Concepts introduced the design of bumper boat ponds with free form fiberglass walled ponds that included islands and chase channels to further increase the overall excitement and entertainment value experienced by the guests.

We've worked from the beginning to improve guest safety through the design of an individual bumper boat docking pocket system that hold boats in position for guests boarding and exiting, as well as providing safety walkways around the pond perimeters to enhance staff access to the far side of the pond in the event they need to be there in a hurry. All our pond designs include the use of flexible fiberglass walls to improve both the quality of the visual experience and to increase the longevity of the boat tubes.

With the advent of electric (battery powered) bumper boats, we exclusively specify the use of electric boats and all of our pond designs incorporate the provision of swimming pool quality water in the pond. This is especially significant with modern boats having squirt guns.

Each pond is designed with islands to create chase channels to permit far more exciting and entertaining experiences. Many of our newer pond clients ask for our newer pond designs that create two separate areas for guests, the first being for more reserved bumping and the second containing  the "battle-zone" with islands, shore-mounted squirt guns and water canons. an more challenging more resed inclusion of battle zones where the boats compete with shore-based guests firing coin operated shore mounted water "cannons" and squirt guns at the.firing at the boats as the boats fire at them.
