Better Rides aim to always be at the cutting edge of the industry with absolutely first-class modern equipment, but we also have a firm working background in traditional fun fairs.  You will find our extensive first hand knowledge of providing such diverse rides and attractions at such a wide variety of events invaluable to the smooth running of your event.  We’re not just an agency sitting in an office picking and choosing rides we think you might like - we are out there every day working hard to fulfill our clients every need, so we know exactly what we’re talking about and what will or will not work for you!  We guarantee to make your event unique and exciting: something your visitors will always remember, ensuring that you stand out from the crowd.




We are a family run business with many generations of experience in the amusements industry and as such take a very “hands-on” approach to everything we do. We get to know each of our clients on a personal level and therefore understand their individual wants and needs. We are friendly and accommodating but also professional to the end. We carry each job through with sincere passion and pride.


We are a Manchester based company but can and do travel to destinations all around the World to attend events of all kinds!




We love what we do and work hard to ensure that we are highly regarded within the amusement and tourism industry. All of our staff are fully trained and of smart appearance. Unlike many of our competitors, we believe that aesthetic appearance and a professional attitude go hand in hand; each member of the Better Rides team wear a uniform, are of smart and tidy appearance, do not smoke in public view and male staff are clean shaven.




Stanley Reeves Jnr (Director) is a member of The Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain; the British trade organisation for Funfair and Amusements operators.


We carry full Public Liability Insurance up to the sum of £10,000,000.00 (ten million) for each individual attraction. Copies of certification are available  upon request.


In addition to the daily checks and maintenance carried out by our own experts, each attraction must pass an annual safety and electrical compliance test by an ADIPS* engineer. Once the attraction has been thoroughly examined and found to comply with health and safety regulations as required by “Fairgrounds & Amusement Parks - Guidance on Safe Practice HSG 175”, the appropriate certificates are issued. Copies of certification are available to our clients upon request.  More information regarding health & safety can be found on our “Safety Standards” page.
