Differences compared to cheap bumpers

We would like to give you some noticeable differences between the bumpers available on the market, which we think are important for the customer, although they seem to be negligible. Our bumpers are always on the left side of the comparison picture.

Structure

The inner part of the bumper is made up of strings which serve mainly to relieve the impact and also keep its shape. At first glance, the images show differences in design. Double strings are used in our bumpers, which are of course much more solid and are attached to grips with less weight. The construction of low-cost bumpers contains simple strings that are attached to massive grips, which of course also reflects the weight of the entire bumper. The TPU material has better properties in comparison to PVC in every aspect and our bumpers can be also used in winter. Transparency of the material is very important too.

Weight

Weight

The weight greatly affects the movement with the bumper, the joy of the game, the physical fatigue and the overall experience of the attraction. Firstly, the weight of the bumper depends on used material. Our bumpers are made of lighter and stronger TPU material. Cheaper bumpers are made of PVC, which is less durable, so thicker layer needs to be used. It reflects the weight of the bumper. Another factor is the string grips inside the structure. There is 200 strings inside of each bumper, so they highly affect the weight. The weight of our bumpers is just under 7kg and the weight of the cheap PVC bumpers is around 15kg! You really do not want to run with it.

Handles

The handles you hold inside the bumper play a very important role in terms of safety. On the right picture you can see the hard plastic handles that are used in cheap bumpers. They are usually placed in the face area there is a big chance of hurting your head if you get hit during the game. In our bumpers, the handles are made from solid and soft material. They are placed in the area of the chest, so the movement is natural and player has free view. Each handle is coated with a protective cover to protect your hands in case of hard impacts.

Straps

Other differences are straps that make holding the bumper on the shoulders. In the photos, you may notice a difference in the quality of the material used. The straps in our bumper will increase the comfort of your game and so will withstand your load. Each strap is reinforced from the inner side with a soft material to protect the shoulders from heavy hits. And the most important thing is their simple adjustability, which guarantees the correct setting for each player, greater safety and comfort.

Games and rules

Bumperball - football in bumpers
The standard rules of football are ignored, the ball serves only as a excuse for hitting opponents. Goals can be counted :)

Bumperbowling
Players simulate the pins and the other player (bowling ball) tries to knock down as many of them as possible. The player who knock down the most pins will win.

Conquering a circle
The players are divided into teams and run against each other from the opposite sides of the playing area. They try to occupy the marked circle with as many players as possible, while pushing the opponents out of the circle. The winners is the team with the most players in the ring when the time runs out.

Last man standing
The goal of the game is to be the last standing player. Everyone tries to hit other opponents and knock them down. Another variation of the game is the so-called "Team deathmatch" when two teams compete against each other instead of individuals.

Sumo
The goal of the game is to push the opponent off the marked area.

You can also make up your own game.
