Normally, children’s rides are set to last for 3 minutes, and this is the length of time we recommend for your Bumper Boats. Many children stay on the boat for a second (or third) ride but, otherwise, it will take 30 seconds for one child to disembark from the boat and another child to embark.
For the purpose of this exercise, we therefore assume that each ride PLUS changeover time will be 3,5 minutes. We recommend that the Bumper Boat tokens will be sold for € 2.
(or 3 tokens for €5).
Each boat is capable of making 17 rides per hour (including necessary changeover time). Therefore, with each boat you make 17 rides x € 2 earning € 34 per hour per boat.
